What are cookies?

In general, a cookie is a small amount of data (text file), which may contain an anonymous unique identification code, and which is transmitted from a web server of the site visited to the terminal (computer, notebook, tablet, smartphone) of the surfer, on his or her navigation program (browser), to be then re-transmitted to the site visited on the next visit. If the cookie is a session cookie, it expires at the end of the visit to the site and is deleted. If, on the other hand, the cookie is persistent, i.e. it is valid for longer than the browsing session, it is re-read and recognised by the site that sent it, even when the user makes subsequent connections. During browsing, the user may also receive cookies on his/her terminal that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site he/she is visiting may reside.

Cookies can be used for different purposes: monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, performing computer authentication, etc..

Cookies are used to facilitate the use of the website and to make it more efficient overall. Cookies also allow us to identify you on subsequent visits.

This website uses the types of cookies described below, together with their function and scope:

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are cookies that are used to carry out navigation or to provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for any other purpose. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, therefore the cookies, which allow to carry out and maintain the identification of the user during the session, are indispensable. The cookie remains active during the browsing session.

You can disable the use of cookies through your browser settings or browse anonymously. In this case, this will result in the blocking of functions such as authentication, validation and management of a browsing session.

Temporary cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They include, in particular, session cookies, which store a “session ID” that allows different requests from your browser to be associated with the relevant session. In this way, your device will be recognised again when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you end your session or close your browser.

Persistent cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which may vary from case to case. You can delete cookies at any time via your browser’s security settings.

Blocking cookies

You can configure your browser and app settings according to your preferences, for example by choosing to reject all cookies or only third-party cookies. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the features of the website.

Retention period

Cookie retention periods vary and can be viewed via your browser.


We use various services to analyze users’ interactions with our Services, such as how many users visit our Services, what information is most requested, and how users interact with our Services. The data we collect includes the referring websites, the sub-pages related to our Services that are viewed, and the frequency and duration of visits to each sub-page. In this way we can improve the user experience in relation to our Services and our Services themselves; the data that is used is pseudonymised. The legal basis for the above is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. This use relates to the Universal Analytics operating mode. This allows data, sessions and interactions on multiple devices to be assigned to a pseudonymous user ID and analysed for activity across devices.

Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymisation is activated on the website, however, your IP address will already be truncated within member states of the European Union or other contracting states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. Our legitimate interest in data processing also covers these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1) f of the GDPR. The data that we send and that are linked to cookies, user information (such as user ID) and promotional IDs are deleted after 14 months since the last use of our services. Data whose retention period has expired is automatically deleted once a month. More information on terms of use and data protection can be found here.

If you wish to prevent cookies from being stored, you can use the corresponding settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of the website to their full extent. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing this software. By disabling cookies, you prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data on your various devices, you must set the cookie disable on each device. Set the disable cookie by clicking here: Disable Google Analytics.

Social Networks Plug-in

They are used for the sole purpose of allowing easy sharing of content on your favorite social networks. When you visit a page of our website that contains a plug-in of a social network, your browser connects directly to the servers of the social network from which the plugin is loaded, which server can track your visit to our website and , if applicable, associate it with your social media account, in particular if you are logged in at the time of the visit or if you have recently browsed one of the websites containing social plugins. If you do not want the social network to record data relating to your visit to our website, you must log out of your social network account and, probably, delete the cookies that the social network has installed in your browser.

Transmission of data

When we use service providers who process data outside the EU and EEA, we use appropriate safeguards such as standard EU data protection clauses or an EU adequacy decision to transmit and process your personal data outside the EU.

Data security

We have taken extensive technical and operational security precautions to protect your data from being manipulated, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorised persons, either accidentally or intentionally. Our security measures are periodically reviewed and updated to keep them abreast of technological advances.

Data retention

We retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for you to use our Services, to provide you with our Services and for legal compliance. We will anonymise and/or aggregate your data if we intend to use it for analytical statistical purposes for longer periods.

Do Not Track signals and similar mechanisms

We do not act in response to these signals because there is no standard in place.
