What are cookies?
In English, the term “cookie” means biscuit, but in the realm of web browsing, a “cookie” is something completely different.
When you access our website, a small amount of text is stored on your device’s browser called a “cookie”. This text contains various information about your browsing habits, preferences, personalisation of content, etc…
There are other technologies that work in a similar way and are also used to collect data about your browsing activity. We will call all of these technologies together “cookies”.
The specific uses we make of these technologies are described in this document.

Who uses the information stored in cookies?
The information stored in cookies on our website is used exclusively by us, with the exception of those identified below as ‘third party cookies’, which are used and managed by external entities that provide us with services that enhance the user experience. For example, the statistics collected on the number of visits, the most liked content, etc… are usually managed by GOOGLE ANALYTICS.

What types of cookies are used on this website?
BY MANAGING ENTITY
– First-party cookies:
These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
– Third-party Cookies:
These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
FOR THEIR PURPOSE
– Technical cookies:
are those necessary for browsing and the proper functioning of our website, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, managing payment, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, make an application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security elements during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, text or image loading animation) or share content through social networks.
– Analytical cookies:
Cookies allow us to quantify the number of users and thus carry out the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the service offered. To do this, your browsing on our website is analysed in order to improve the range of products or services that we offer you.
– Preference or personalization cookies:
– Behavioural advertisements:
These are processed by us or by third parties and allow us to analyse your browsing habits
on the Internet so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
According to the length of time they remain active
– Session cookies:
are those designed to collect and store data while the user is accessing a web page.
They are typically used to store information that is only relevant to the provision of the
service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of products purchased) and
disappear at the end of the session.
– Persistent Cookies:
Persistent cookies are those in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this respect, it should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since the risks to privacy could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to reduce their temporary duration to the minimum necessary, taking into account the purpose of their use. To this end, WG29 Opinion 4/2012 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiry must be related to its purpose. As a result, session cookies are much more likely to be exempted than persistent cookies.
