- PROFILING COOKIES: only after your consent, we will install some types of persistent profiling cookies made by third parties (for example some cookies may be present in images, maps, videos, sounds, links to pages outside the Platform, etc.), which have the task of creating your profile to allow the sending of targeted advertisements on the preferences you have expressed during your navigation within the Platform:

- Profiling cookies made by third parties and related to statistical services (session and persistent): these cookies allow to know how you visit the Platform and allow to evaluate and make any changes relating to the possibilities of use of the information and services.

To perform these operations we use Google Analytics – a web analytics service, provided by Google.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law, or in the case of third parties that process this information on their behalf.
Google does not associate your IP address with any other data that Google owns (in fact we have disabled all the sharing functions of your personal data, except for the ‘Benchmarking’ function that treats aggregated and anonymous data – https://support.google. com / analytics / answer / 1011397? hl = it) and we have provided for the masking of part of your IP address.
