Technical cookies

This type of cookie enables the correct functioning of some sections of the Website. This internet website only uses technical cookies, that is, those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or where strictly necessary for the provision of an information company service explicitly requested by the subscriber or User” (see art. 122, par. 1 of the Data Protection Law).

These cookies are not used for any other purpose and are normally set directly by the website owner or administrator.

They may be categorized as browsing cookies or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and use of the website (for example allowing an online purchase or authentication for login to secure areas);

  • Analytics cookies are similar to technical cookies in that they are used directly by the site administrator to collect information, in aggregate form, on numbers of users and on how they use the website;
  • Functional cookies allow users to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language preference, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.

The prior consent of the user is not required in order to set these cookies, while it remains mandatory to issue a privacy notice under art. 13 of the Data Protection Law; website administrators may provide this notice in the way they deem most appropriate, if these are the only cookies used.

The acquisition and processing of data deriving from the use of technical cookies is mandatory in order to browse the Website. If the User refuses the use of these cookies it will not be possible for them to view the website completely and successfully. With the exception of technical cookies, the general rule for “Storage of information on the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user or access to information that is already stored” remains that the prior informed consent of the User must be sought (opt-in). This means that any cookies that cannot be categorized as “technical” but which are of critical importance from the point of view of protecting the User’s private sphere, for example those used for profiling and marketing purposes, cannot be installed on Users’ terminals unless the Users have been adequately informed beforehand and have given their valid consent.


This type of cookie integrates functions developed by third parties within the pages of the Website, such as icons and preferences expressed on social networks in order to share the website content, or for the use of software services provided by third parties (such as software for generating maps and other software offering additional services). These cookies are sent from third party domains that offer their functions on the Website pages.
For this type of cookie, the User’s consent may be expressed in one or more of the following ways:

  • through specific configurations of the browser used or the relevant information programmes used to browse the pages of the Website;
  • through changing the settings for using third party services.

The following cookies may be present on some of our Website pages:
