These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and our customers’ sites and to check its proper functioning, to identify anomalies and / or abuse, and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site or third parties: except in this instance, at present the data on web contacts do not linger for more than fourteen days, unless the user requests it.

Thanks to cookies, a website remembers user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, the chosen language, the font size, other visualization settings, etc.) to avoid users having to select them again on their following visit of that website or when navigation through other pages of the same website. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site, and may also contain a unique identification code that allows to keep track of navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, users may also receive on their computer or mobile device cookies from sites or web servers other than the one they are visiting (so-called "third party" cookies). Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the very operation of the site.
There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these may remain in the user's computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a set deadline.
