For the sake of simplicity, these technologies are briefly referred to in this document as “Tracking Tools”, unless there is reason to differentiate.

This Website uses Tracking Tools managed directly by the Owner (usually called “first party” Tracking Tools) and Tracking Tools that enable services provided by third parties (usually called “third party” Tracking Tools). Unless otherwise specified in this document, these third parties have access to the respective Tracking Tools.
Duration and expiration of Cookies and other similar Tracking Tools may vary depending on what is set by the Owner or by each third-party provider. Some of them expire at the end of the User’s browsing session.
In addition to what is specified in the description of each of the categories listed below, Users can obtain more detailed and updated information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Tracking Tools – in the privacy policies of their respective third-party suppliers. (through the links made available) or by contacting the Data Controller.
