Cookie Policy

This website (“Website” or “Site”) uses cookies to facilitate and personalise your browsing experience; by browsing the Website, the user agrees to the use of cookies in compliance with this document. This notice complements the cookie notification banner displayed when users first connect to the home page of this Website. There are several categories of cookies:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Site. In some cases the Site editor may also know information such as the age group (e.g., 25-36 years), gender, geographical area (e.g., central Italy) of users: however, the information collected by cookies is aggregated in a way that does not enable the Site manager to directly trace the user's identity. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our Site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Functional Cookies

These cookies enable the Website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Targeting Cookies

These cookies may be set through our Site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Social Media Cookies

These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the Site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other Websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.:

• “own” cookies, generated and managed directly by the operator of the Website on which the user is browsing;

•“third party” cookies, generated and operated by parties other than the operator of the Website on which the user is browsing. For the purposes of data protection law, such third parties are separate data controllers from the company that operates the Website.
