How many types of cookies are there?
There are two fundamental macro-categories, with different characteristics:

technical cookies and profiling cookies
Technical cookies are generally necessary for the website to function properly and to allow navigation;

without them the navigator may not be able to view the pages correctly or to use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to memorize the settings of the language, display, and so on.

Technical cookies can be further divided into navigation cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies only when used to collect information,

in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles relating to the user and are usually used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net.

Cookies can, again, be classified as:
session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed (for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.)

persistent cookies, which - unlike session cookies - remain within the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device that connects to the site, facilitating user authentication operations

first-party cookies, i.e. cookies generated and managed directly by the manager of the website on which the user is browsing

third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the manager of the website on which the user is browsing (as a rule, by virtue of a contract between the website owner and the third party)

Information related to the management of personal data through social media platforms used by the Data Controller.

Regarding the processing of personal data carried out by the operators of the social media platforms used by the Data Controller, reference is made to the provisions found in their respective privacy policies. The Data Controller manages the personal data provided by users through dedicated pages on social media platforms, in order to manage interactions with users/customers (such as comments, public posts, etc.), always in accordance with current legislation.

The personal data mentioned on this page are processed by the Data Controller in the execution of the services provided by the site and subsequently, if provided for by the site itself, by contractual or legal obligations and defense in court.
In cases where there are specific sections for newsletter subscriptions or marketing services, they will be managed by specific notices and the legal basis will be consent.

As provided by the decree of June 10, 2021, "Guidelines on cookies and other tracking tools," the website user is free to authorize or not authorize profiling cookies according to their free choice and will. In some cases, such as the Google reCaptcha cookie, blocking such profiling cookies prevents the submission of requests through data acquisition forms equipped with this tool. If a problem arises with a non-functioning form due to cookie blocking, it can be resolved by reactivating cookies from the privacy settings. Alternatively, if one prefers to maintain the cookie block, the request can be sent via email.
In addition to information related to navigation data, users can freely decide whether to provide their personal data through request forms available on the sites or as indicated during contacts with the organization to request newsletters, informational material, or other communications.
Without such data, it will be impossible to fulfill the request.

The Controller does not make use of legitimate interest for the processing of personal data except for the protection of their own rights, namely, to establish, exercise, or defend a right before the courts.

The collected data is processed both in paper form and using computer tools.
Appropriate security measures are observed to prevent data loss, unlawful or incorrect uses, and unauthorised access.

The processing of personal data is carried out by authorized personnel or duly appointed data processors. The updated list of data processors or any autonomous data controllers can be requested from the Data Controller or the DPO.

The data will be transferred only within the EU.
Some applications, such as, but not limited to, Google Analytics, ReCaptcha, and Facebook Pixel, may be transferred to the USA to companies that have obtained certification under the Data Privacy Framework.

The retention time of the user's choices relating to cookies is six months as required by the measures.
The storage time of cookies changes according to the type of membership. For third-party profiling cookies, the specifications on the related sites can be consulted directly.
Personal data processed for contractual or economic purposes, such as invoicing, will be processed for the mandatory periods required by relevant laws, such as administrative accounting data for 10 years.

Data subjects have the right, where applicable, to obtain from the Data Controller access to their personal data and the rectification or erasure of such data or the restriction of processing concerning them, or to object to processing (Articles 15 and following of the GDPR). Opposition for marketing purposes is always possible and free of charge. Requests should be addressed to the Data Controller using the contact details provided at the beginning of this notice..

Data subjects who believe that the processing of their personal data through this website is in violation of the provisions of the Regulation have the right to lodge a complaint with the Supervisory Authority as provided for in Article 77 of the Regulation, or to take appropriate legal action (Article 79 of the Regulation).
