Cookie policy

This portal complies with regulations on the use of cookies.
In order to effectively provide our services, and to enable certain functions, we install small text files called cookies on your device. Cookies are stored on your device in order to be sent to the portal on your next visit. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from the user's hard drive, transmit computer viruses or obtain email addresses. Every cookie is unique to the user's web browser.
This portal uses only technical cookies and anonymous analytics cookies, and uses no profiling cookies or cookies for advertising purposes. If you would like to know more about this portal's use of cookies, read this notice in full.



Technical and functional cookies

These cookies are essential in order to allow you to browse the portal and fully use its features. Without these cookies, some necessary services cannot be enjoyed. They will therefore always be used and sent, provided that the user has not changed their browser settings.

In accordance with article 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code (Italian Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 and subsequent amendments) "technical" cookies may be used even without the user's consent. By browsing this portal, you accept the fact that these cookies may be installed on your device.

The Italian Data Protection Authority, in Provision no. 231 of the 10th June 2021, clarified which types of cookies do not require the prior and informed consent of users. Of these, the technical cookies used by this portal are:

1) cookies with data entered by the user (session ID), for the duration of a session or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases;
2) authentication cookies, used for authenticated services, for the duration of a session;
3) session cookies for load balancing, for the duration of a session;
4) persistent cookies for customisation of the user interface, for the duration of a session (or a little more);

Anonymous analytics cookies

When browsing the portal, you may also receive analytics cookies on your device for the generation of statistics on the use of the web portal. In particular, these cookies:

  • are used exclusively for aggregate statistics with regard to this specific portal
  • do not store the user's IP address

As these are analytics cookies used exclusively for the purpose of evaluating the efficacy of the service provided by the portal and helping to measure its traffic, such cookies are comparable to technical cookies, and may therefore be used without prior consent from the user.


Interaction with other sites

On this portal you can find links to external sites, e.g. social media platforms. These are buttons or links that do not install profiling cookies themselves, but simply open third-party sites on another page, where you can directly express your consent to the use of the related cookies. In particular, the following may be present:

  • buttons to access the social media profiles of the owner of this portal (e.g. Facebook, Youtube)
  • buttons for sharing content from this portal on your social media profiles (e.g. Facebook, Twitter)
  • buttons for extending a search to other sites (e.g. Google Books)

This type of cookie falls under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the same third party.
