Cookie Policy

The information below, relating to the use of cookies on this website “”, is provided to the user/navigator, implementing the provision of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data of the “Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools” of 10 June 2021 (Published in the Official Gazette No. 163 of 9 July 2021) and in compliance with Article 13 of the GDPR (General EU Regulation on the protection of personal data No. 679/2016).

The information is prepared and updated by M&B S.R.L., with registered office in Via Croce Coperta, 11 – Bologna, VAT number 03553041207, dedicated email address:, Data Controller for the processing of personal data connected to it.

The same contacts can be contacted to exercise the rights provided for by the GDPR in favour of the data subject (Articles 15 to 21 and Article 34 of the GDPR: for example access, cancellation, updating, rectification, completion, etc.).


Cookies are usually text strings that websites (so-called Publishers, or “first parties”) visited by the user or different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) place and store – directly, in the case of publishers and indirectly, that is, through the latter, in the case of “third parties” – within a terminal device available to the user.

The terminals referred to are, for example, a computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or any other device capable of storing information. Already today, and even more in the future, it is necessary to include so-called IoT (Internet of Things) devices, which are designed to connect to the network and to provide services of various kinds, not necessarily limited to mere communication.

The software for browsing the Internet and the operation of these devices, for example browsers, can store cookies and then transmit them again to the websites that generated them on the occasion of a subsequent visit by the same user, thus keeping memory of their previous interaction with one or more websites.

The information encoded in cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, a user name, a unique identifier or an email address, but may also contain non-personal data, such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the website.

Cookies can therefore perform important and different functions, including monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, facilitating the use of online content, etc. For example, they can be used to keep track of the items in an online shopping basket or the information used to fill out an electronic form.

Cookies and, to a large extent, other tracking tools can have different characteristics from a temporal point of view and therefore be considered based on their duration (session or permanent), or from a subjective point of view (depending on whether the publisher acts independently or on behalf of the “third party”).

The classification that responds to the ratio of the law and therefore also to the needs of protecting the person, is the one that is based, ultimately, on macro-categories:

  • technical cookies, used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or user to provide such a service” (see Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Code);
  • profiling cookies, used to refer to specific, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or behavioural patterns recurring in the use of the features offered (patterns) in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different sizes, so that it is also possible for the owner, among other things, to modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalised way beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as to send targeted advertising messages, that is, in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the network.
  • monitoring cookies or “analytics” or for statistical purposes

Analytics cookies are used to collect statistical information, in aggregate or non-aggregate form, on the number of users accessing the Website and how they visit the Website.

Statistical cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

The consent of the user is necessary in the case of third-party analytics cookies (for example, Google) that allow the IP address of the user to be identified.

Cookies can also be classified as:

  • session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed (for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.);
  • persistent cookies, which – unlike session cookies – remain inside the device, continuing to operate even after closing the browser and until a certain period of time has elapsed;
  • first-party cookies: cookies generated and managed directly by the operator of the website where the user is browsing;
  • third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website where the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the owner of the website and the third party).
