Hereinafter the owner of the site, Egea Spa, with registered office in Milano, via Sarfatti 25, phone 02 58365751; fax 02 58365753; e-mail (hereinafter, “Data Controller”) provides to the users all information about cookies set up on the site (hereinafter, the “User” and the “Site”) and the indications for managing their own preferences on them. For more information about the data and the methods of processing, the categories of recipients, the rights of the data subject, the procedures for their exercise and the data protection officer contact details, please consult the privacy policy of the Site  which shall be read together with this cookie policy.

1.1 Definition

Cookies are small text files which the Site visited by user sends to the user’s terminal, where they are memorised in order to be sent back later to the Site during subsequent visits by the user. Cookies are used for many purposes, they have different features and they can be used both by the Data Controller of the Site which the user is visiting and by third parties. The main categories in which cookies can be divided are the following:
•    session and persistent cookies;
•    technical and profiling cookies;
•    first party and third party cookies.

1.2 Session and persistent cookies                                                                                                                     
Cookies can be erased at the end of a session with the browser (the time period between opening and closing of web browser by the user) or can be stored for a longer term. Session cookies are those allowing the web sites to link users’ actions during a browser session. Session cookies expire when the browser session ends. Persistent cookies are stored in the user’s hard drive among browser’s subfolders for variable period of time and allow to record user’s preference and actions in relation to a web site.

1.3 Technical and profiling cookies                                                                                                                 
Technical cookies are those used by the Data Controller of a web site for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network or, as strictly necessary, for sending to the provider of a service of a company the information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to deliver that service. For the installation of such technical cookies, the prior consent of the person involved is not required where used directly from the site manager.
Profiling cookies are used to create profiles relating to the user and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the net. Due to particular invasiveness which such cookies can have within the ambit of users’ privacy, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use by a banner and detailed note on the site and must give his/her own explicit consent to this extent the first time visiting the site and, subsequently, every 6 months, or when one or more processing conditions change significantly or, also, when it is impossible for the website operator to be aware of the fact that a cookie has already been previously stored on the device in order to be transmitted again, during a subsequent visit by the same user, to the site that generated it. Such consent can be expressed by interacting with the banner on the home page of the site and following the instructions indicated therein or can be given or refused in selective manner by way of the following instructions. This consent is then stored to be used over the next visits. However, the user has always the possibility to withdraw totally or partially his/her consent already expressed.

1.4 First party and third party cookies
Cookies can be first party (so called “first party cookie”) or third party (so called “third party cookie”) in relation to the web site or domain where they come from.                                                                            
First party cookies are set up and managed by the Data Controller of the site. 
Third party cookies are set up by a different domain from that one visited by the user. 
The User can select and/or disable cookies at any time by clicking to the “Cookie setting” button and accessing to the area called "Privacy preferences center", available in the cookie banner shown to the User during the first access or through specific links present on the Site. This feature allows the user to access a dedicated area where he/she can select, in an analytical manner, the cookies grouped by homogeneous categories, to the use of which the user chooses to consent or disable, as well as confirm previous choices. In addition, by clicking on the link "cookie list",  you can access the list of cookies used, even the third party’s cookies. The list of cookies grouped by homogeneous categories, as well as the cookie list , is constantly updated 
Moreover, the user can manage preference relating to the cookies directly inside his/her own browser and to stop – for example – third parties from installing one. Through browser’s preferences is also possible to erase cookies previously installed, including the cookie where the consent to install cookies from the Site is stored in case. It is important to underline that by disabling all cookies, the operation of the Site could be compromised.

Users' personal data may be subject to transfer to third countries that do not guarantee a level of security adequate to European standards and for which no adequacy decision has been issued by the European Commission pursuant to Article 45 Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter "GDPR").
