What is a cookie? A cookie is a small data file that a website places on a user’s computer.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are small strings of text sent by a website to the visitor, and subsequently sent back for reading by the server. Each time the user returns to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends the file to the site server. Cookies are therefore mainly used to remember users’ choices (e.g. the spoken language) and to recognize the recurring visitors of a website, since web pages in themselves do not have any ‘memory’. In general, the purpose of cookies is to improve the functioning of the website and the user experience of using it

Types of Data Collected
Data provided voluntarily
The information requested is used to allow access to the online services offered by the site. Since registration is preliminary for access to these services, users’ personal data, once the service has been chosen, will be processed for the purposes connected and / or functional to the chosen service. If the chosen services are managed by third parties, the data will be communicated to the individual operators. The latter will act as “owners” for the treatment connected to the provision of the services under their jurisdiction.
During their normal operation, the IT systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but that for them could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning, and are kept for the times defined by the reference legal regulations. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the site.
Purpose of Treatment
I process personal data within the limits of what is strictly necessary for the provision of services to users. The processing purposes are strictly connected and instrumental to the use of the services offered by the site (site navigation), and to the management of relations with users. Specific purposes, relating to the individual treatments, may be reported in detail within the various access channels. Within them, the User can find additional information on the processing of personal data. The provision of data for communications relating to marketing activities is optional and must be provided only and exclusively with the specific consent of the user, in the manner expressly provided for in article 7 of the GDPR directly from the website. Communications relating to marketing activities may take place through the use of traditional methods (e.g., paper mail, phone calls with operator), automated (e.g., phone calls without operator) and similar (e.g. fax, e-mail, SMS, newsletter). Unless otherwise agreed, the Data Controller may continue to send commercial communications relating to services similar to those to which they are already using to their customers.
Method of treatment
The data processing will be carried out by means of the following operations: collection, registration, organization, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, cancellation and destruction of data.
The data will be processed both on paper and electronically and / or automatically.

The data may be communicated and / or disclosed to the companies of the corporate group.
