According to the Authority’s provision for the protection of personal data established on the 8th of May 2014 and referring to the “simplification of information collection procedures and consent acquisition for the use of cookies”, the user must be informed of the following.

Cookies general information
When you access our website, the system might set or read cookies and/or other identifiers that can store information regarding your internet browser and/or device in use.
A cookie is a small text file which gets stored on the user’s computer when viewing a website, and its purpose is to record some of his information in order to identify his activities and grant a better browsing experience the next time he will visit the website. On the other hand, device identifiers’ purpose is to gather and process information such as the IP address and/or the user agent (browser and operating system) or other device features, so as to match the information with that particular user.
A website can only set a cookie if the browser’s preferences allow it. Keep in mind that a browser can allow a website to issue only the cookies it was set to let through, not those from other websites. Therefore, when it comes to it, there is no risk to your privacy.

Cookies’ and similar technologies’ standard practices
Our website might use cookies or other identifiers for a number of reasons. More specifically, it may do so to:

  • enter restricted areas of the website that can only be accessed via authentication (in this scenario, cookies are called “technical” and their purpose is to maintain the browsing session online and/or simplify future accesses from the same device);
  • keep track of the user’s preferences while browsing the website and/or accessing other related services;
  • display advertising contents relevant to the user’s interests (third-party cookies only);
  • process data for statistical purposes (analytics), especially when it comes to the user’s preferences when browsing the website and/or accessing other related services;
  • conduct research in order to improve contents, products, and services.

The website does not implement any cookies with direct profiling purposes. The only built-in cookies managed directly by the website are the so-called technical cookies (which purpose is to offer appropriate services to the public) and – in a very small number – analytics cookies (which purpose is counting the times a page has been opened and/or other statistical purposes). However, we inform users that profiling cookies might be placed on our webpage by third parties (ref. “Cookies from other organizations”).

Cookies from other organizations
This website includes third-party services within its pages, and these might set up and use their own cookies and/or similar technologies. Their use is governed by other organizations and their own privacy policies, and it cannot be managed by our website or regulated as explained hereby.

How to turn off cookies
You can set up your browser to accept or deny all cookies or only specific cookies (such as third-party cookies), or you can opt for being warned anytime a cookie is being placed on your computer.
Keep in mind that denying all cookies might prevent you from having access to products and services on this website, specifically when the website requests you to log into your account as a registered user via username and password. Since these services require cookies in order to work, blocking cookies could potentially prevent you from getting access.
