I) Use of Cookies

This site uses cookies. By using our website you declare that you accept and consent to the use of cookies in accordance with the terms of use of cookies expressed in this document.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files that contain packets of information that are stored on your computer or mobile device every time you visit an online site through a browser. At each subsequent visit, the browser sends these cookies to the website that originated them or to another site. Cookies allow the site to remember some information to allow you to navigate online quickly and easily.


  1. based on the person issuing them. Based on the entity that issues them, “cookies” can be classified into:
  • first-party cookie“: this is the “cookie” that is saved (actually “saved”) in the user’s browser on instructions from the site visited by the user.
  • third-party cookies“: this is the “cookie” that is saved (actually “saved”) in the user’s browser on instructions from other sites, because it could be that the site where you are browsing hosts banners (spaces advertising) managed by other sites (or loaded from their servers) which can also easily leave “cookies” on your browsing device.
  1. based on the time spent on the user’s device. Based on their life cycle, “cookies” can be further classified into:
  • session cookies“: they are removed when the user closes the browser and therefore have an extremely limited duration.
  • permanent cookies“: they are saved for a long period of time. This type of “cookie” however has an expiry date. “Permanent cookies” allow websites to remember information and settings on subsequent visits by the user, thus making navigation more practical, rapid and efficient.
  1. based on the function they perform. Based on their intended use, “cookies” are further classified into:
  • technical cookies“: they are used to support navigation or to provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner.
  • profiling cookies“: they are aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the internet.
  • analysis or monitoring cookies“: this type of “cookie” has given rise to difficulties in classification, which are only apparently not easy to resolve.

At a quick glance they would be considered “profiling cookies”. What does the concept of profiling evoke more than “statistics”? In reality, however, the law considers “analysis cookies” as instrumental to the functioning of a website, and for this reason includes them in the category of “technical cookies”. Therefore, there would appear to be no obligation to request any consent.

In reality, this may not be the case because these “cookies” are, in the vast majority of cases, issued not directly by the site itself, but by a third party, mostly Google Analytics, and therefore, for this reason alone, they are subject to the same regime as “cookies”. profiling”. This is because if we carefully read the “Cookie Law”, in premise 1, in point a) dedicated to “technical cookies”, it is written: They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. So, if the “cookie” is not installed directly by the publisher, then it is a third-party “cookie”. And “third party cookies” should be subject to the same regime as “profiling cookies”.
