WHAT ARE COOKIES
Cookies are small text files sent by our website and stored on your computer, tablet, smartphone or other mobile device. They contain basic information about your internet browsing and are recognised by your browser each time you visit the site. Cookies can be first-party if set by the site you visit, or third-party if set by an external site.
CLASSIFICATION OF COOKIES:
This type of cookie allows our site to function correctly. There are two categories, permanent and session cookies:
- permanent: once the browser is closed, they are not destroyed but remain until a preset expiry date or until the user deletes them.
- session cookies: these are destroyed each time the browser is closed.
These cookies are necessary to correctly display our site and in relation to the technical services offered, they will therefore always be used and sent, unless the user changes the settings in their browser.
Technical cookies are used for the following activities:
- Activities strictly necessary for operation
These cookies are technical in nature and allow the site to function correctly. For example, they keep the user logged in while browsing, preventing the site from requiring the user to log in several times to access the various pages or sections of the site.
- Preference saving activities
These cookies allow us to remember the preferences selected by the user during navigation, for example, they allow us to set the language.
- Statistical and audience measurement activities
These cookies help us to understand (through the use of Google Analytics), through data collected in an anonymous and aggregate form (IP addresses on Analytics are masked and we do not use profiling cookies), how users interact with our website by providing us with information about the sections visited, the time spent on the site, any malfunctions. This helps us to improve the performance of our website.
These cookies are used to create “user profiles” and allow us to send advertising messages in line with the preferences and choices that emerge from the navigation of each user.
This website DOES NOT USE PROFILATION COOKIES.
However, Facebook, Google and other external sites do use them. For more information, please read the following paragraph “third-party cookies”.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES

These cookies are established by a domain other than our site and are subject to the relevant regulations regarding their use. We will not have access to the data stored by the cookies of other sites while browsing on them.
In the presence of third-party cookies (for example, by clicking on social media buttons or viewing videos/maps hosted by other websites), profiling cookies belonging to these third parties may be installed on our site with the aim of proposing targeted ads to you based on your activity on the Internet.
