Cookie Policy(COOKIE POLICY)

The “” Web Site (hereinafter also the “Site”) uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the Site and provide an optimal browsing experience.
This document:
– It is intended to inform users about the collection of information, via cookies and/or other tracking technologies, during browsing.
– It is intended as a supplement to the more general Privacy Policy of this Site.

A “cookie” is a small text file created on the User’s computer at the time the User accesses a particular site for the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the visited website is running) to the User’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the User’s computer; they are, then, re-sent to the website on subsequent visits.
Cookies can collect a lot of information such as, for example, IP address, nationality, city, date/time, device, browser, operating system, screen resolution, browsing source, pages visited and number of pages, length of visit, number of visits made.

It is possible to classify cookies according to

A. To their life cycle in:

1. Session cookies: these cookies are deleted from the User’s device when the browser is closed. One characteristic of them is that they have no expiration date. This allows the browser to identify them as such.
2. Persistent cookies: these cookies are stored in the User’s device for a specified period of time (until the expiration date). This means that, for the lifetime of the cookie, information will be transmitted to the server every time the User visits the website.

B. To the origin in:

1. First-party cookies: these are the cookies sent to your browser directly from the site you are visiting. They can be either persistent or sessional; they are managed directly by the owner and/or manager of the site and are used, for example, to ensure its technical operation or keep track of preferences expressed regarding the use of the site itself.
2. Third-party cookies: cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functionality into the Site, so they belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. They appear, therefore, when web pages have content, such as videos, maps, social network icons or banner ads, from external websites. This involves the possibility of tracking the User’s browsing history and is often used by advertisers in an attempt to serve relevant and personalized ads to each User.

C. To their use (or purposes) in:

1. Technical cookies: are used for navigation and to facilitate the User’s access to and use of the Site. Without such cookies, the site or portions of it may not function properly.
2. Statistical or “analytics” cookies: these are used for Site optimization purposes, directly by the Site Owner, who may collect information in aggregate form about the number of users and how they visit the Site.
3. Functionality cookies for storing preferences: these are cookies useful to facilitate the User’s proper use of the site. They are used, for example, to keep track of the language chosen.
4. Advertising and profiling cookies: these cookies are intended to provide advertising space. They may be installed by the Site Owner or by third parties. Some are used to recognize individual advertising messages and know which ones were selected and when. Other advertising cookies are used to hypothesize a browsing “profile” of the User, so that we can propose advertisements in line with his behavior and interests in the network.
5. Social network cookies: these are the cookies that allow you to also share with other users the content of the site you are visiting. These are the cookies typically used to enable the “Like” or “Follow” functions of Social Networks. These features allow social networks to identify their users and collect information even as they browse other sites.

With the entry into force of the European Regulation 679/2016, in the case of a site with the presence of only technical/functional cookies (Art. 2. Lett. C. No. 1, 2, 3 of this policy) and/or first-party statistical cookies and third-party statistical cookies with anonymized IP, it is not necessary to have a banner cookie and collect the User’s consent.
In the case of the presence of other types of cookies (Art. 2 Lett. C, No. 4 and 5 of this policy), such as advertising cookies, and all other third-party cookies, thus including Social Networks, in addition to the banner cookie the GDPR requires:

– explicit (opt-in) consent and thus no longer implicit consent such as scrolling down the page;
– Prior blocking of cookies before consent;
– The recording of consent logs to be provided as “evidence.”
– the description for each cookie including who receives the data, for what purpose, and the expiration date;
– The ability to withdraw consent easily even at a later time.

For the operation of its Site, La Sia uses the following categories of cookies:

a. Technical and functionality cookies: technical cookies are used that are essential for the proper functioning of the site, for session management, for internal system functionality or for the customization of certain parts of the Site strictly necessary to complete the activities requested by the User.
Among functional cookies we specify that the Site uses Google Fonts a service, operated by Google, that allows fonts (fonts) to be loaded to improve the appearance of the Site through the use of style sheets. Since no authentication is required for its use, (as, differently, is required for the Gmail mail service) no cookies are sent by Site visitors to the Google Font application interface (API) which is designed specifically to limit the collection, storage and use of End User data to what is necessary.
The User can view Google’s policy on its fonts at this link:

b. First-party cookies for browsing analysis with anonymized IP: For statistical analysis purposes, La Sia uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), a web analytics software platform that provides detailed reports on the site and its visitors. Unlike remote hosting services, such as Google Analytics, Matomo is installed on the Owner’s server and therefore the ownership and access to the data remains under the sole control of the collector so as to prevent processing that is not in accordance with the User’s wishes. For more information you can see Matomo’s policy on data protection in line with the provisions of the GDPR at the following link:

_pk_id.1.1aaa1 year 1 monthThis is used to store a few details about the user, such as a unique visitor ID, the time of the first visit, the time of the previous visit, and the number of visits.
_pk_ses.1.1aaa1 hourThis is a short-lived cookie, typically expiring after 30 minutes of inactivity, used to temporarily store data about the visitor’s session. This cookie does not record any specific user information; it is used primarily to maintain session data to ensure consistent user experience during a single visit.

It is important to point out that at this Site:

a. No profiling cookies are present: the cookies used do not serve in any way to track the browsing behavior of the individual User and therefore always respect the privacy of surfers.

b. No social network cookies are present: Sia does not use social widgets on its site but only external links to its social profiles.

However, we encourage the User to pay proper attention to the use of features that allow you to interact with social networks because, at times, they may track your browsing with their cookies. These are third-party websites that have their own privacy policies that may differ from those adopted by the Owner of this site. Sia is not liable, therefore, for Third Party Sites.
The User can view the third party disclosures at the links below and change cookie preferences at any time.
