1. What Cookies are
Cookies are small text files that the Website sends to the user's terminal, where they are stored to be then re-transmitted to the Website on the user´s subsequent visit.
Cookies differ on the basis of their use: while some Cookies are strictly necessary for browsing the Website (such as those allowing browsing web pages), others have different purposes and therefore require the user's consent in order to be installed (such as, for example, those used to create user profiles and show personalized advertising).
Furthermore, Cookies can be first-party cookies (if placed directly by C.M.C.) or third-party cookies (if placed by sites or web servers other than the Website).
For a more detailed description of the nature of the different categories of Cookies, please refer to the specific sections below.
2. Categories of Cookies

The use of analytical Cookies installed and managed directly by C.M.C. does not require the user’s consent, as they are considered as Necessary Cookies. Similarly, in the event that the analytical Cookies are set by third parties, the user’s consent will not be required should Cookies be used on the Website only, the third parties reduce the identifying power of analytical Cookies (for example, by masking significant portions of the user's IP address), do not cross-reference the data contained in the Cookies with other information available to them and do not send them in turn to third parties; in other words, the user's consent will not be required when appropriate measures have been adopted to prevent the direct identification of users through the use of third party analytical Cookies. Consequently, the user's consent will be required for analytical Cookies installed by third parties if, by means of their use, the users are directly identified.
