A website can set a cookie on the browser only if the preferences configured for the latter allow it. It is important to know that a browser can allow a specific website to access only the cookies set by it and not those set by other websites: there is no risk for your privacy in this regard.

The Data Controller also informs that it has accepted the Amendment on data processing (Google Analytics Data Processing Amendment) made available by Google Analytics in compliance with the Directive 95/46/EC.  In particular, by virtue of this amendment, Google guarantees that it will process personal data recorded through the service only within the limits of instructions given by the website operator and not to share them with other Google services unless this has been explicitly requested and authorized by the owner of the website himself.

In view of the above, we inform the user that the advertising and data sharing options with Google have not been activated and that Google Analytics has not been connected to any additional services: therefore, the processing is carried out merely for the sake of statistical purposes and therefore, on the basis of what is explicitly dictated by the Privacy Guarantor, Analytics cookies have been treated as technical cookies and as such, have been installed without the prior consent of the user.
