Cookie policy respects the privacy of its website visitors in compliance with the European laws concerning privacy rules and cookies use. Here below you find some information on how our website uses the cookies.

Definition of cookies

A cookie is a small text file created by an Internet site and is designed to store information about the user in the system, especially to track his preferences on sites he frequently revisits. If, for example, the user does a website search on a flight schedule, the website can create a cookie containing the user’s itinerary. The cookie can as well contain a registration of the pages visited on a site. This information will be used by the website in order to customize the display that will appear to the user at his return visit to that site.

Cookies can also store information on personal identity, or, in other words, information that can be used to identify or contact a person. For example: name, e-mail address, home or office address, telephone number, etc. But in any case, a website can access this information only if personally provided by the user. For example: a website can neither determine the e-mail address (except when the user has provided it directly) nor can it access other information present on the user’s computer.

Cookies stored on the computer can only be read by the website that has created them: indeed, the files containing them have got the name the website URL has composed.

Types of cookies

There are different types of cookies, each with its proper nature and function.

“Persistent” and “session” cookies

  • “Persistent” cookies remain stored as file on the user’s device for a set period of time specified in the cookie, even after the browser’s closure. This type of cookie is activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
  • Session” cookies, on the other hand, are temporary and will remain stored only for the duration of the ongoing session. Once the user closes the session, they will be deleted from the computer: the closure can be generated by a specific command, the closure of the browser or the use of a URL different from the website URL that has created the cookie.

Technical and profiling cookies

  • Technical cookies are usually installed by the website operator and are designed to grant normal navigation and use of the website, e.g. a purchase or authentication for access to restricted areas. As well the so called “functional” cookies are considered technical cookies. They allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria, such as language switch or selected products to purchase, in order to enhance user experience.
  • Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and offer content in line with the user’s behaviour and interests or send messages/targeted advertisements based on the preferences tracked during user’s navigation. Given the fact that the use of these cookies is particularly invading the user’s privacy, legislative regulation has increased the security control level.  These cookies are first-party cookies if created by the visualized website, or third-party cookies if installed by external sites profiling the user who hosts a certain service on his proper site. They are generally used to register the visitor’s use of a page for marketing or advertisement purpose.

The kind of cookies our website uses
