The Website (hereinafter also the “Site”) uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the Site and to provide an optimal browsing experience.

This document:

  • Has the purpose to inform users about the collection of information, through cookies and / or other monitoring technologies, while browsing.

  • Is an integration of the more general Privacy Policy of this Site.

A “cookie” is a small text file created on the user’s computer, when they access a website, with the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer which is running the website visited) 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 at the time of subsequent visits.

Cookies can collect a lot of information such as, IP address, nationality, city, date / time, device, browser, operating system, screen resolution, navigation origin, pages visited and number of pages, duration of the visit, number of visits made.

It is possible to classify cookies by

  1. their life cycle in:

  1. Session cookies: these cookies are deleted from the User’s device when the browser is closed. One of their characteristics 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 certain period of time (up to the expiration date). This means that, for the entire life span of the cookie, the information will be transmitted to the server each time the User visits the website.

  1. By the origin in:

  1. First-party cookies: these cookies are sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting. They can be both persistent and session; they are managed directly by the owner and / or manager of the site and are used, for example, to guarantee its technical functioning or to keep track of preferences expressed regarding the use of the site.

  2. Third-party cookies: cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functionality on the Site, therefore they belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. They appear, therefore, when the web pages are equipped with content such as videos, maps, social network icons or advertising banners, coming from external websites. This implies the possibility of monitoring the User’s browsing history and it is often used by advertisers in an attempt to serve relevant and personalized ads for each User.

  1. By their use (or purposes) in:

  1. Technical or functional cookies: they are used for navigation and to facilitate the access and use of the Site by the User. Without these cookies, the Site or parts of it may not work properly.

  2. Statistical or “analytics” cookies: they are used directly by the owner of the site or through third parties, in order to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site for the purpose of its optimization.

  3. Advertising and profiling cookies: these cookies are intended to provide advertising space. They can be installed by the data controller or by third parties. Some cookies have the purpouse of recognizing individual advertisements and identifying which ones were selected and when. Other advertising cookies are used to hypothesize a User’s “profile” of navigation, in order to be able to propose advertising messages in line with his / her behavior and interests on the net.

  4. Social network cookies: these are cookies that allow you to share the contents of the site you are visiting with other users. These cookies are typically used to activate the “Like” or “Follow” functions of Social Networks. These functions allow social networks to identify their users and to collect information even while browsing other sites.

With the entry into force of the European Regulation 2016/2016, in the case of a site with the presence of only technical / functional cookies (Art. 2. Lett. C. n. 1 of this information) and / or statistical cookies (Art. 2. Lett. C. n. 2, of this information) first and third party with anonymized IP, it is not necessary to have a cookie banner and collect the User’s consent.

In the case of the presence of other types of cookies (Art. 2 Lett. C, n. 3 and 4 of this information), such as advertising, and all the other third parties, therefore including Social Networks, in addition to the cookie banner the GDPR requires:

  • explicit consent (opt-in) and therefore no longer implicit, such as scrolling the page;

  • preventive blocking of cookies before consent;

  • the registration of the consent logs to be provided as “evidence”;

  • the description for each cookie that includes who receives the data, for what purpose and the expiry date;

  • the possibility to withdraw consent in a simple way also later.

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

  1. Technical and functional cookies: indispensable technical cookies are used for the correct functioning of the site, for session management, for the internal functions of the system or for the personalization of some parts of the site strictly necessary to complete the activities required by the User.

Among the functional cookies we specify that the Site uses Google Fonts a service, managed by Google, which allows you to load fonts (fonts) to improve the appearance of the Site through the use of style sheets. Since no authentication is necessary for its use, (unlike for the Gmail mail service where it is required) no cookies are sent by the visitors of the Site to the Google Font application interface (API) which is designed specifically for limit the collection, storage and use of End User data to what is necessary.

The User can view the information on Google on their fonts at this link:

  1. Proprietary analytics cookies with anonymized IPs: for statistical analysis purposes La Sia makes use of Matomo (ex Piwik), a web analysis 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 data remain under the exclusive control of those who collect it as to prevent processing that does not comply with the wishes of the ‘User. To further guarantee the personal data of users, Matomo allows, in order to let La Sia website to be GDPR compliant, to anonymize the information without the possibility of cross-referencing it with user ids acquired from other registrations on the web. Matomo cookies are persistent and have a duration of 13 months.

For more information, you can consult Matomo’s data protection policy in line with the provisions of the GDPR at the following link:

It is also possible to change your preferences as follows:

It is important to specify that on this Site:

  1. There are no profiling cookies: the cookies used do not serve in any way to trace the browsing behavior of the individual user and therefore always respect the privacy of surfers.

  2. There are no social network cookies: La Sia does not use social widgets on its site but only external links to its social profiles.

However, we invite the User to pay due attention to the use of functions that allow you to interact with social networks because, sometimes, these could track your navigation with their cookies. These are third-party websites that have their own privacy policy which may be different from the one adopted by the owner of this site. Therefore La Sia is not liable for third party sites.
