This Cookie Policy describes the different types of cookies that may be applied by or by third-party organizations on this website or on our mobile application. If you have questions regarding this Cookie Policy, please contact [email protected].

What is a "cookie"?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile applications by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, and also to provide organizations some information on you and on your browsing activities.

Cookies have several functions, such as allowing you to navigate efficiently on a website or a mobile application, remembering your choices and the goods and services you purchased. Thanks to cookies, we:

When we talk about "cookies" we are also talking about technologies similar to cookies, such as scripts, web beacons, pixels, fingerprinting and redirects. Scripts (sometimes called tags) are programs that run in your browser or mobile application and perform various actions, such as sending information to our servers.

Cookies can be implemented by us and also by third-party organizations.

Data collected through cookies

Cookies allow us to collect personal data relating to you, and to transmit us technical information about the devices you use, the clicks you make, and the content you view. We combine this information with personal data that you have already provided us or that we have obtained from external sources (see our Privacy Policy here).

The cookies we place on your terminal give us access to the following personal data relating to you:

Are cookies necessary for our site/app to work?

Yes and no. Some cookies are necessary for our site to function ("Essential Cookies"). However, for others, your consent is collected before the cookies are implemented on your terminal.

Essential Cookies allow our website/mobile applications to function. Without them, your user experience would be degraded. The Essential Cookies that we implement without your consent are the following:

Why we use non-essential cookies

These cookies, for which we collect your consent, are used to measure our audience, to present you with personalized advertising, to tailor the content displayed on our website/application to your preferences, and to allow you to share our website/mobile application content on social media platforms. We use non-essential cookies for the following:

The use of social networks to interact with our sites and applications (in particular the “like" buttons on Facebook, Twitter) allows you to share content of our website on social media platforms.

For example, if you are connected to the social network Facebook and you visit a page of our site, Facebook is likely to collect this information. Likewise, if you consult an article on our website and click on the "tweet" button, Twitter will collect this information. We therefore invite you to consult the privacy policies of any such social networks to learn about the collections and processing they carry out on your data.

Do we use third-party cookies?

Yes. Some cookies are set by our service providers who help us achieve our goals (for example Google Tag Manager sets a cookie to help us measure our audience). Below is the current list of third parties that implement cookies on your terminal through our website/mobile application.

## 6. How do we collect your consent?
You will be prompted to take a clear, affirmative action so that we can ensure that you agree with the processing of your personal data. This action may, for example, take the form of a checkbox in your online tool. Before obtaining your consent, we will systematically inform you of the names of the organizations implementing the cookies, the consequences of your consent or refusal to consent, the purposes of the processing, and your right to withdraw your consent.
You can choose to consent to certain uses that we or our partners will make of your data and to refuse others.

What if you change your mind?

You can withdraw your consent at any time and easily. All you need to do is to send us an email at [email protected]. If you refuse to give us your consent for non-essential cookies, or decide to withdraw it, you will not suffer any negative consequences and will be able to continue to use the rest of our service normally.
