Storing your personal data
We do our utmost to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to make sure that your data is stored securely.
Cookies are brief fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) allowing the web server to memorize on the client server (the browser) information to be used again during a visit to the site (session cookies) or during a subsequent visit, even after some days (persistent cookies). Cookies are memorized, according to user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as web beacons, transparent GIFs and all the forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, are used to gather information about the user’s behavior and use of services.
Here below we will refer to cookies and to all similar technologies using simply the term “cookies”.
Types of cookies
Various categories of cookie can be defined on the basis of their characteristics and usage:
Cookies strictly necessary for site functionality (technical cookies). These cookies are fundamental to the correct functioning of our site. The duration of these cookies is strictly limited to the work session (they are cancelled on closure of the browser).
Cookies for analysis and performance. These are used to gather and analyze the traffic and usage of the site anonymously. Although they do not identify the user, they allow the system to identify whether the same user returns to the site on different occasions. They allow the system to be monitored and performance and usability to be improved. The deactivation of these cookies can be carried out without loss of functionality.
Cookies for profiling. These are permanent cookies used to identify (sometimes anonymously, sometimes not) user preferences and to improve their browsing experience. Our site does not use this type of cookie.
Third party cookies
When visiting a website the user can receive cookies both from the site visited (“owner cookies”), and from sites managed by other organizations (“third party cookies”). The “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn are examples of the latter. Parts of the page visited are generated directly by the above-mentioned sites and integrated into the host site page. The most common use of social plugins is designed for content sharing on social networks.
These plugins cause the transmission of cookies to and from all the sites managed by the third parties. For the management of information gathered by these “third parties” please refer to the following documentation. To guarantee greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the documentation and management of these cookies is provided below.

This website also includes some components transmitted by Google Analytics, an analysis service of web traffic provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). These are also third party cookies, which are gathered and managed anonymously in order to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookie).
Google Analytics uses these “cookies” to gather and anonymously analyze information about the behavior and use of the site. This information is gathered by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to produce reports regarding the activity on the website itself. This site does not use Google Analytics (and does not permit its use by third parties) to monitor or gather information about personal identification. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data owned by Google, and does not try to connect any IP address with the identity of a user. Google can, however, provide information to third parties when required by law to do so, or when these third parties process this information on Google’s behalf.
For further information, please refer to the link below:
The user can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing on the browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:

Management of cookies
Users can decide whether or not to accept cookies by changing the preferences on their own browser.
Warning: total or partial disabling of technical cookies can damage use of the site functions reserved for registered users. However, the public content of the site will function even when cookies are completely disabled.
Disabling third party cookies will not affect browsing of the site.
Preferences can be defined specifically for the various sites and web applications. Moreover, the best browsers allow different preferences to be defined for “owner” and “third party” cookies.
As an example, in Firefox, using the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, it is possible to access a control panel where the user can define whether to accept the various types of cookie or not and can also remove them.
