Cookie Policy

Thank you for visiting our website.

The Owner pays the utmost attention to the protection of the personal data of its users: the processing is based on the principles of correctness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of confidentiality in compliance with European Regulation 2016/679 (hereinafter GDPR 2016/679) as well as of Directive 2002/58 / EC (updated by Directive 2009/136 / EC) regarding Cookies.

This page describes how to manage the site owned by Liquidweb Srl, as Data Controller (subsequently appointed as “Owner”), in relation to the processing of personal data of users who consult it and is valid as an Information pursuant to art. 13 of the GDPR.



1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being transmitted back to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. They allow the site to determine if the device used by the user has already made a connection and, in this case, they improve the access methods. During navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which certain elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that he is visiting.

By default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. Cookies, which are usually found in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes with features of long temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc.

The Legislator, in implementation of the provisions contained in Directive 2009/136 / EC, traced the obligation to acquire the prior and informed consent of users to install cookies used for purposes other than merely technical (see Article 1, paragraph 5, letter a), of the d. lgs. 28 May 2012, n. 69, which amended art. 122 of the Code).

It is therefore necessary to distinguish cookies in two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.


1.1. Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service “(see Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager.

Technical cookies can be divided into:

  • browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
  • analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
  • functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

The prior consent of the users is not required for the installation of these cookies.


1.2. Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent.

Article. 122 of the Privacy Code provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after to have been informed using the simplified procedures referred to Article 13, paragraph 3 “(Article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code).


2. What is the duration of cookies?

Some cookies remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies persist when the browser is closed and are also available for subsequent visits by the user.

We can therefore distinguish cookies, in order of duration, in:

  1. “Session” cookies: they are stored on the user’s computer for mere technical and functional needs, for the transmission of session identifiers necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site. They are canceled at the end of the “session” (hence the name) by closing the browser. This type of cookie avoids the use of other IT techniques that are potentially detrimental to the privacy of users’ browsing.
  2. “Persistent” cookies: they remain stored on the computer’s hard drive until they expire or are canceled by users / visitors. Through persistent cookies, visitors who access the site (or any other users using the same computer) are automatically recognized at each visit. Persistent cookies satisfy many functions in the interest of surfers (such as the use of the navigation language). However, persistent cookies can also be used for promotional purposes. Visitors can set the computer browser so that it accepts / rejects all cookies or displays a warning whenever a cookie is proposed, in order to evaluate whether to accept it or not. The user is enabled, however, to modify the default configuration (by default) and disable cookies (ie block them definitively), setting the highest level of protection.

These two types of cookies (session and persistent) can be turn in:

– of “first part” when cookies are managed directly by the owner and / or manager of the website.

– of “third party” when cookies are set up and managed by managers outside the website visited by the user.


3. How can I check the installation of Cookies?

You can manage your cookie preferences directly within your browser and prevent – for example – third parties from installing them. Through the browser preferences it is also possible to delete the cookies installed in the past, including the cookie in which the consent to the installation of Cookies by this site is eventually saved. It is important to note that by disabling all cookies, the operation of the site may be compromised.


3.1 Activate the “Do Not Track” option

The Do Not Track option is present in most last-generation browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option, when activated, should automatically stop collecting some browsing data. As mentioned, however, not all websites are set up to comply with this option (discretionary).


3.2 Activate the “Anonymous browsing” mode

With this function it is possible to navigate without leaving a trace in the browser of the navigation data. The anonymous browsing function does not guarantee, however, anonymity on the Internet, because it serves only to not maintain the browsing data in the browser, while instead the navigation data will continue to remain available to website managers and connectivity providers.


3.3 Delete cookies directly

There are special functions to do this in all browsers. It is worth remembering, however, that new cookies are downloaded at each Internet connection, so the deletion should be performed periodically. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for periodic cookie deletion.


3.4 Deleting cookies on the main browsers:

Information on how to manage the cookies of the main browsers can be found at the following addresses:

4. What cookies are present on this site?


4.1. “First party” cookies

 Installed directly by the Owner or directly by the website manager:


Session Cookies
Name Domain


Permanent Cookies
Name Domain


These cookies are necessary to improve the usability of the website and do not require prior consent to use. If removed from your browser (following the instructions above) the site may not work properly. By continuing to browse, you accept the use of technical cookies.


4.2. “Third-party” cookies 

Instead, they are set up and managed by managers outside the website visited by the user.

Below is a list of “third-party” cookies on the site with the relative links (links) to their web pages containing information and forms for acquiring consent.

Name Domain Link


By clicking on the ACCEPT button the user consents to the use of third-party cookies.

Given the objective complexity related to the identification of technologies based on Cookies and their very close integration with the functioning of the web, the User is invited to contact the Owner if he wishes to receive any further information on the use of the Cookies themselves and on any uses of the same – for example by third parties – made through this site.


5. Terms and conditions

By accepting this cookie policy you consent to the use of cookies in accordance with the above. In the event that the user does not feel he wants to accept the use of cookies, he can leave the site or use the information on how to disable the cookies in this document.

The installation of cookies and other tracking systems carried out by third parties through the services offered within the pages may vary at any time (in: name, duration, quantity, type, purpose, etc.) without prior notice from the supplier third, for this reason the Data Controller is not responsible.

For complete information on data processing, it is therefore necessary to consult the privacy policy of the third-party services listed above in this document.

The possible entry into force of new sector regulations, as well as the constant examination and updating of the general conditions of use of the website, could lead to the need to change this document. It is therefore possible that this Policy will change over time and we therefore invite each user to periodically consult this page. It is understood from now on that any change in the privacy information provided during the collection of personal data will be communicated to each interested party by the data controller in the latter’s identified modalities.
