The provision of personal data is mandatory exclusively for the processing necessary for the provision of the services offered by us (any refusal, for the purpose of providing our services, makes their use impossible); it is instead optional for promotional and profiling purposes and any refusal to give consent does not have negative consequences on the provision of the services offered within the website and any related applications.

Cookie Policy

HTTP cookies and similar technologies


HTTP cookies and/or similar technologies (e.g. SDK for the mobile world) are essentially small text files, a sort of identification token that is used by the web applications of the < strong>server (site side) and which store and retrieve long-term information on the client (user-side terminals or devices).

More simply: when the user browses the site, the servers send cookies in the HTTP response and the user’s browser is expected to save and send response cookies to the server. This happens every time the user (client) makes new requests to the site (server).

This recognition allows the creation of authentication mechanisms, used for example for logins; to store data useful for the browsing session, such as preferences on the graphic or linguistic aspect of the site; to associate data stored by the server, for example the contents of the cart of an electronic shop; to track the user’s browsing, for example for statistical or advertising purposes.

Cookies can be stored permanently (persistent cookies) on your device or have a variable duration: they can in fact be deleted when the browser is closed or have a < strong>duration limited to the single session (session cookie).
