Cookies are pieces of information that our website transfers to any device accessing one of its pages. Cookies can transmit information between website and device and between device and other websites that operate on our behalf or in private, in accordance with the requirements set out in the respective Privacy Policy. You can choose to receive a notice each time a cookie is sent, or to disable all cookies by changing your browser settings. By disabling cookies, however, some of our services may not function properly and you will not be able to access some features which are designed to enhance your browsing experience on this website. For further information concerning the management of cookies or on how to disable browser cookies, please refer to the last section of this Cookies Policy.

For the sake of transparency, we inform our users that this website uses the following cookies.

1. Technical cookies

These cookies are essential in order to be able to browse the website and to use certain features. Without the technical cookies, which are strictly necessary, the basic website navigation services cannot be provided. As stated in the disposition No. 229 of 8 May 2014 of the Privacy Authority, cookies "are not to be used for other purposes and they are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, guaranteeing the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or to authenticate in order to access restricted areas); Analytics cookies, which shall be regarded as technical cookies, in cases where these are used directly by the website operator to collect aggregated information regarding the number of users and the way they visit the website; functionality cookies, which allow a user to browse the website according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase), aimed at improving the service provided to the user".

Pursuant to Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code, "technical" cookies do not require user consent.

In this regard, the Opinion 4/2012 (WP194) on Cookie Content Exemption, issued by the Article 29 Working Party made it clear that user consent is not necessary when there are:

1) cookies containing data compiled by the user (session identifier): These are either session cookies or, in some cases, persistent cookies lasting for a few hours;

2) authentication cookies: session cookies used for the purposes of the authenticated services;

3) safety cookies focused on users, used to identify authentication abuse. These are persistent cookies limited to a certain amount of time;

4) session cookies for media players, such as cookies for "flash" players, expiring at the end of a browser session;

5) session cookies for load balancing, expiring at the end of a browser session;

6) persistent cookies for the customization of the user interface, expiring at the end of a browser session (or lasting slightly longer);

7) cookies for sharing content through third parties’ social media plugins, to be used by members of social networks who are already logged in.

By way of example, some technical cookies used on this website are mentioned below:

Our Company (or the service providers acting on behalf of the company itself) may insert performance cookies in your navigation device.

The information gathered through performance cookies will be used exclusively by Abiogen Pharma S.p.A.

3. Third party cookies

Please note that the responsibility for the use of such cookies lies with third-party companies. In this regard, the Privacy Authority has explicitly clarified that: "The obligation to inform the user with regard to the use of cookies as well as to obtain their prior consent is a responsibility of the website manager using them, in their capacity as data controller. In the event that a website also allows for the transmission of "third party cookies", the privacy statement and the informed consent procedures shall be carried out by the third party. The user must be properly informed, albeit with the simplified procedures prescribed by law, whenever the website allowing to store third party cookies is accessed, that is, when the user accesses content supplied by third parties and, in any case, before cookies are downloaded onto the user's terminal." By way of example, some of the Third Party cookies used on this website are mentioned below:
