  1. Types of cookie used

 

This website makes use of technical and third-party analytical cookies; first-party profiling cookies are not used.

In particular, the website uses cookie technology to customise content and analyse the traffic to the site, to remember the preferences of users, including their consent for the use of cookies, to collect information in an anonymous form about the web pages visited and how the visitors arrived at the website, in order to obtain useful information for improving the organisation and presentation of site content (Google Analytics are used for this purpose) and, lastly, to offer third-party services, such as interactive geographical and road maps (Google Maps are used for this purpose).

Information about use of the website by visitors is shared with our partners active in the social media and statistical data sectors.

 

The statistic service known as Google Analytics makes it possible to keep track of visits to the website, to generate and view data in an aggregated, anonymous form in order to understand how visitors use the website, and to process statistics.

The cookies used by the website and by Google Analytics do not, under any circumstances, make it possible to determine the identity of visitors and do not allow the data collected to be cross-referenced with other information already known.

Google guarantees that it will not associate the IP addresses of website visitors with any other data about them that might be in its possession, unless the visitors concerned use other services offered by Google that require the association to be made and have accepted the related privacy rules prepared by Google. In all cases, the above association of information has been prohibited by the Data Controller, which has expressly adjusted its settings within the Google Analytics account by rendering IP addresses anonymous and disabling the authorisations relating to “Google products and services”, “Benchmarking”, “Technical support” and “Account expert”.
