In particular the Personal Data Protection Authority has gathered the cookies under the following macro-categories:


Technical cookies are only used to transmit a communication via an electronic communication network or to the extent strictly necessary for the information society provider of a service explicitly requested by a subscriber or user, in order to provide that service. There are not used for other purposes and are usually directly installed by the website owner or administrator. The can be divided into the following categories:

-    Session or browsing cookies, which ensure normal browsing and use of the website (for example, they enable purchases or authentication to enter reserved areas);

-    Cookie analytics, they are used together with technical cookies, directly by the website administrator to collect information in aggregate, on the number of users and how these visit the website;

-    Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse on the basis of a series of criteria selected (for example, language products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.


Profiling cookies create user profiles which are used to send advertising messages in line with the consumer preferences when browsing the net. In view of the particular intrusiveness that these devices can have in the private life of users, the Italian and European regulations establish that the user be properly informed on their use and so expresses his/her valid consent.

Art. 122 of the Code refers to them, providing that “storage of information on a user or contracting party's terminal device, or access to information already stored, is only allowed on condition that the user or contracting party has expressed her/his consent after he/she has been informed with the simplified procedures under Art. 13, par. 3” (art. 122, par. 1 of the Code).

Even if they are not directly classified under the regulation as an autonomous category, also … are important since they are mentioned on different occasions.


These cookies are used to statistically analyse accesses/visits to the website (so-called “analytics” cookies) but do not always exclusively pursue statistical purposes or collect information in aggregate, and are often provided by third parties that collect IP addresses from users and can access them in disaggregate (in these cases, it is possible to limit data processing using anonymization techniques). Usually they are not exempt from that consent. Anyway, they are assimilated to technical cookies when they are directly used by the website administrator of the website to collect information in aggregate on the number of users and how these visit the website.


The data controller informs the user that the Website does not use cookies for the transmission of personal information, nor the so-called persistent profiling cookies or systems for user tracking, are used.

Technical cookies are not used. The website uses third party's cookies only to analyse the site traffic (Cookie Analytics) via aggregate data and in an anonymous way. These cookies, relating to Google Analytics services, will be better described in the corresponding section in this notice.

Finally, the user is informed that, although the website is provided with social media buttons, they are only links: "I like" buttons that use the cookies are not present.

In particular, cookies used in this Website are the following:

  • _gat (Google Analytics service cookies) used to increase the speed of page uploading processes, duration: 10 minutes.
  • _ga (Google Analytics service cookies) used to distinguish the users, duration: 2 years.


Google Analytics is used to assess the website performance (more/less viewed pages, more/less clicked elements, number of visitors, most searched words, etc.).

Google Analytics is an analysis tool by Google that helps the owners of websites and Apps understand how visitors interact with the content they own.

A set of cookies can be used to collect information and generate statistics on the use of the website without the personal identification of every visitor by Google. These markers are used to store the information of visitors, such as the time when the site was visited, previous visit and the domain of the site from which they linked to the site. This information is generated through the access to a site and then sent to server machines located in the United States of America and there stored by Google.

A pixel tag is also used in addition to cookies. The pixel tax is a type of technology used on a website or an e-mail to track the activities on websites or opening/access to e-mails, and is often used together with cookies ( More information on the Google Analytics service are available on this page

On the contrary, the Privacy Policy by Google,, rules in general the processing of personal data of users who uses Google products and services. Finally, for a better protection of the user’s rights, we inform the user on the possibility offered by Google (via the additional option available at the following link to decide to be excluded from the collection of data via Google Analytics. In such a case, the visitor will not send any information to Google Analytics.

We finally stress that GOOGLE ANALYTICS provides an anonymous use of the users' IP address.

In fact, for this website, we have asked Google Analytics to anonymise the users/visitors’ IP address. So Google Analytics anonymises the address as soon as this is technically possible at a later stage in the net, during the collection of data. The IP anonymization function in Google Analytics set the last octet of user’s IP addresses IPv4 and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses on zero memory, immediately after transmission to Google Analytics collection network. In this case, the complete IP address is never written on the disk.

More information on the anonymizations service in use, also affecting Google pixel tags, is available here:

Finally, the user is informed that the list of cookies used by GOOGLE ANALYTICS is available at the following address

The data controller also informs that he has accepted the amendment on data processing (Google Analytics Data Processing Amendment v20130906) made available by Google Analytics in compliance with Directive 95/46/CE.

In particular, according to that additional agreement for Customers based in the EU, Google undertakes to process data in compliance with the requests of the Customer-Owner, which shall be provided by the customer through the service settings. In addition to providing technical support and maintaining the service, Google grants that personal data owned by the customer will be processed according to the instructions given and will not be shared with other additional services unless the customer activate those services.

As a result of the above, the user is informed that advertising and sharing of data with Google have not been activated for this website; and that Google Analytics has not been connected to any additional service: therefore, data processing is performed for mere statistical purposes. The Privacy Authority considered that, on account of the clarifications of June 5 2015, websites using suitable tools to reduce the identification power of analytical data (for instance, masking of meaningful portions of the IP address) are not subject to the obligations and fulfilments provided for by the law (notice to the Authority in primis) if the use of these cookies is conditional to the contractual links between websites and third parties, where it is expressly mentioned that the third party undertakes either to exclusively use them for the provision of the service, store them separately and not to “enrich” them or not to “match” them with the other information available.
