Since so-called cookies are used on our Website for different purposes, with this policy we would like to explain what cookies are and how they are used on the Website.

In this policy, pursuant to Art. 13 of Regulation EU 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 relating to the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (hereinafter, “Regulation”), we explain how we collect this data, for which purposes and which are your rights.

Other cookies (so-called third-party cookies), on the other hand, are conveyed and controlled by third parties. In this policy you will find links to the policies published by these third parties, which we invite you to read carefully.

If you are not familiar with cookies, please read this policy and the other privacy policies on our website (“Receiving Newsletters”, “Let’s Meet” and “Careers”) carefully so that you can be aware of your choices.

A. What are cookies and what are they for?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to said websites at the next visit of the same user (so-called first-party cookies). When browsing a website, the user can also receive cookies from different websites or web servers on his terminal (so-called third-party cookies); this happens because on the website visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these are those cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.

Cookies may have a duration limited to a single browsing session in the browser (so-called session cookies), and in this case they are automatically deactivated when the browser is closed by the user; or they may have a predetermined expiry and, in this case, they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until this expiry date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions in the browser (so-called permanent cookies).

Cookies are used for various functions. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the website and take advantage of its functionalities (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, on the number of users accessing the Website and on how the Website is used (so-called tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to track your consumer profile and show you advertisements on the Website that may be of interest to you, since they are consistent with your tastes and your consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).

To learn more in detail about these different categories of cookies continue reading this policy. Find out how they work and what they are for, and freely choose whether to consent to their use or not.

You can change the consent given for the use of cookies at any time directly from this link – cookie management

B. Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used on the Website for the sole purpose of making it possible to browse the Website and let you use its functionalities. These are always first-party cookies, since they are conveyed directly by us on the Website.

Some technical cookies are essential in order to provide you with an optimal browsing experience or to allow you to log in to the Website, for example to make a purchase on the Website or to enter your reserved area (so-called browsing cookies). Browsing cookies are normally session cookies and therefore, once the browser is closed, they are automatically deactivated.

Other technical cookies are useful to let you store some of your preferences (for example, the language or country of origin) without having to reset them during subsequent visits (so-called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, since they remain stored on your computer even after the browser is closed, until the expiry date envisaged for them or until you have decided to delete them.

The following technical cookies are currently used on the Website:

 

Cookie nameCookie categoryCookie function
cc_necessary– first-party cookieNecessary browsing cookies
cc_advertising– first-party cookie

– browsing

Profiling cookie acceptance status
pll_language-first-party technical cookie

Display language

 

As envisaged by current privacy legislation, your prior consent is not required for the installation of these cookies. Of course you are free to block the installation of technical cookies, by changing the settings of your browser (read paragraph E(1) to find out how to do this). Considers, however, that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently eliminating them, the ability to access the Website, to use all or part of it, to enable or disable certain functions or receive certain services could be in whole or in part compromised.

 

C. Tracking or analytics cookies

Analytics cookies are used by the Website to collect statistical information, whether aggregated or not, on the number of users accessing the Website and on how they visit said Website.

The analytics cookies of this Website are third-party cookies, since they are not directly conveyed by us but by third parties. Therefore, they are not installed directly by the Company but by third parties.

The following third-party analytics cookies are installed on the Website without your prior consent because they are less invasive since they are anonymised, third parties not being able to access analytical data at the IP address level (in other words, using these cookies, third parties can not trace your identity):

Other third-party analytics cookies are, on the other hand, installed on the Website with your prior consent because they are not anonymised, third parties being able to access disaggregated analytics data at the IP address level (in other words, using these cookies, third parties could theoretically trace your identity through the IP address):

For this reason, when you access the Website, a specific banner is displayed, which informs you that (i) third-party analytics cookies are used on the Website and that (ii) closing the banner, scrolling the home page or clicking any element of the home page outside the banner, you consent to the use of cookies. Should you express your consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will keep track of your consent through a specific technical cookie. In this way, we will avoid displaying the cookies banner during your subsequent visits to the Website. Please consider that, should you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner referred to in paragraph E(1) below, the tracking of your consent will be lost and, therefore, during your next visit to the Website the cookie banner will be displayed again.

Of course you are free to block the installation of analytics cookies at any time, without the possibility of visiting the Website and using its contents being in any way compromised. To find out how to do this, carefully read the information on third-party cookies by following the links in the table above.

D. Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are used to create your user profile, based on the preferences and tastes expressed by you when browsing the Internet, and to display advertising messages consistent with your profile. In this way, the advertising messages that you will see on our Website can be more of interest to you.

As envisaged by current privacy legislation, your prior consent is required for the installation of these cookies. For this reason, when you access the Website, a specific banner is displayed, which informs you that (i) profiling cookies are used on the Website and that (ii) closing the banner, scrolling the home page or clicking any element of the home page outside the banner, you consent to the use of cookies. Should you express your consent to the installation of cookies in this way, we will keep track of your consent through a specific technical cookie. In this way, we will avoid displaying the cookies banner during your subsequent visits to the Website. Please consider that, should you delete this technical cookie from your browser in the manner referred to in paragraph E(1) below, the tracking of your consent will be lost and, therefore, during your next visit to the Website the cookie banner will be displayed again.

Of course you are free to block the installation of profiling cookies at any time, without the possibility of visiting the Website and using its contents being in any way compromised. If you decide to deactivate behavioural advertising this does not mean that you will no longer receive advertisements on the Website. However, the banners you will see on the Website may not reflect your interests or preferences on the browser you are currently using.

The majority of profiling cookies are, on the other hand, installed by third parties, who act as autonomous data controllers (third-party cookies). Here is a list of third-party profiling cookies currently used on the Website, with an indication of the link to the policy pages created by their developers:

E. How to manage cookies and object to their use

There are several options for managing, disabling and deleting cookies.

(1) Change your browser settings

Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the browser you use to find out how to manage, disable or delete all cookies (technical, analytics and profiling):

Make your choices carefully. By indiscriminately blocking the receipt of all cookies, including technical cookies, without providing for a specific exception for the Website, you may not be able to browse the Website or use all or part of its functionalities. In addition, by deleting all cookies from the browser, technical cookies may also be removed and, therefore, you may remove the preferences you have set using the Website or not find the products or services put in your cart.

(2) Use our interactive tools or those provided by third parties

To disable first-party profiling cookies, i.e. those installed directly by us, you can simply use the interactive button highlighted in paragraph D of this policy. Your choice to object to the use of these cookies will have no consequence on the ability to browse the Website and use its functionalities, and may be at any time revoked using the same interactive button.

To disable third-party cookies, consult the privacy policies of the third parties that install analytics cookies (see the previous paragraph C) or profiling cookies (see the previous paragraph D) to find out about the other tools at your disposal to manage, disable and delete cookies, and more generally to object to their use. Remember that, by disabling third-party cookies, (i) you object to their use not only on the Website but on all websites on which these cookies are used and (ii) the ability to browse the Website and use its functionalities will not be in any way affected. When you disable third-party cookies you will still see the banner in the home page on the Website related to cookies; in this case, however, by closing the banner, scrolling the home page or clicking any item on the home page outside the banner, you will not receive any third-party cookies that you have correctly disabled.

(3) Use the website www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/  

Your Online Choices is a website operated by the non-profit association European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA), whose Italian version can be reached at www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/, which provides information on behavioural advertising based on profiling cookies (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/a-proposito) and allows Internet users to easily object to (opt-out) the installation of the main profiling cookies installed by advertising operators and used on websites (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/le-tue-scelte). Before using this tool, we advise you to carefully read the general conditions of service of the website Your Online Choices (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/condizioni-generali-di-servizio), the FAQs (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/faqs) and the user guide (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/help).

Use Your Online Choices with discretion. Although, in fact, Your Online Choices brings together many of the most important advertising companies that use cookies, some of the third parties that install cookies through the Website may not have joined Your Online Choices. Therefore, the use of Your Online Choices does not guarantee that you will not receive third-party cookies when browsing the Website. Remember, moreover, that by deleting all the cookies from your browser, also the technical cookies released by Your Online Choices to remember your choices could be eliminated, rendering the third-party cookies active again.

F. Processing methods and data retention periods

As highlighted in the foreword to this policy, the Company collects and processes some of your personal data through cookies that it conveys directly on the Website (first-party cookies). The Company acts as the data controller of this data, in compliance with the provisions of the Regulation. We will process your data only with electronic tools, in a totally automated way and without human intermediation. Therefore, our employees and collaborators will never access the content of your personal data obtained through cookies, which means that they will never be able to access and/or have direct personal identifying information (IPI).

Some of our employees and collaborators, appointed by us as persons in charge of processing, may carry out maintenance work on the computer systems that host your data, without ever being able to access its actual content. Personal data may be stored on servers managed by third parties (e.g. IT systems providers) or may be managed by parties specialised in online advertising, which act as external data processors on the basis of a specific appointment in writing on the part of the Company. We hereby inform you that, in compliance with the conditions and guarantees established by the Regulation, your data may be transferred to countries not belonging to the European Economic Area, which may not offer a level of protection of privacy and personal data protection comparable to that guaranteed by Italian and European privacy laws, but as the controller we will take data security into utmost account and, therefore, we will proceed with the management of such transfers with all due caution and guarantees. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third-party data controllers nor will it be disseminated.

  2. b) (where applicable) the right to data portability (right to receive all personal data concerning them in a structured, commonly used format readable by an automatic device), the right to restriction of processing personal data and the right to deletion (“right to be forgotten”);
  3. c) the right to object:
  4. i) in whole or in part, for legitimate reasons, to the processing of personal data regarding them, even if pertinent to the collection purposes;
