Cookie Policy

Dear Visitor (hereinafter, “You” or the “User”),

This website ( (hereinafter, the “Website”) is owned by the company LC Publishing Group S.p.A., with registered office in Via Tolstoj 10, 20146 Milan (MI) – VAT No. and Tax Code 07619210961 – (hereinafter, “We” or the “Company”).

Since cookies are used on our Site for different purposes, with this policy we would like to explain to you what cookies are and how they are used on the Website. The Cookie Policy is also provided pursuant to Article 122 of Legislative Decree No. 196/2003 (Personal Data Protection Code) and Article 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter, the “Regulation”) in order to explain how and for what purposes we process the personal data about you that we may obtain using our cookies on the Website. 

This Cookie Policy is provided in addition to the Website’s Privacy Policy, which we ask you to read.

Some cookies (so-called “own” or “first party” cookies) are installed and controlled directly by us. Through these cookies, we collect and process certain personal data about you.

Other cookies (third party cookies), on the other hand, are installed and controlled by third parties.  

Please read this Privacy Policy, as well as the Website’s Privacy Policy, so that you can make informed choices.

A. What are cookies and what are they used for?

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send to his/her device (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again (so-called first-party cookies). While browsing a website, the user may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers on his/her terminal (so-called third-party cookies); this happens because on the website visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains residing on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, they are those cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. Cookies may have a lifetime limited to a single browser session (session cookies), in which case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they may have a predetermined expiry date, in which case they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until that expiry date, continuing to collect information over the course of several browser sessions (persistent cookies).

Cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to enable you to browse the Website and use its features (technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether aggregated or not, about the number of users accessing the Website and how the Website is used (so-called tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to trace your consumer profile and display advertisements on the Website that may be of interest to you, since they are consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).

To learn about these different categories of cookies in more detail, continue reading this policy. Find out how they work and what they are used for, and freely choose whether to consent to their use or not.

B. Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used on the Website for the sole purpose of making it possible for you to navigate on the Website and to allow you to use its functionalities. Some technical cookies are essential to provide you with an optimal browsing experience or to allow you to authenticate yourself on the Website, for example in order to make a purchase on the Website or enter your private area (so-called navigation cookies). Browsing cookies are normally session cookies and are therefore automatically deactivated once you close your browser.

Other technical cookies are useful to allow you to store certain preferences (e.g., language or country of origin) without having to reset them on subsequent visits (so-called functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, as they remain stored on your computer even after you close your browser, until their expiry date or until you decide to delete them.

In accordance with current privacy legislation, your prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies. You are of course free to block the installation of technical cookies by changing the settings of your browser (please refer to paragraph E, no. 1 to find out how to do this). Please note, however, that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently deleting them, your ability to access the Website, to use all or part of it, to enable or disable certain functions or to receive certain services may be wholly or partly impaired.

C. Tracking or “analytics” cookies.

Analytics cookies are used on the Website to collect statistical information, in aggregated or non-aggregated form, on the number of users accessing the Website and how they visit the Website.

The analytics cookies on this Website are third party cookies, as they are not installed directly by us but by third parties.

Other third-party analytics cookies are, however, installed on the Website only with your prior consent, because they are not anonymised, as the third party can access disaggregated analytics data at IP address level.

For this reason, when you access the Site, a banner is displayed prominently, informing you that (i) third party analytics cookies are used on the Site. You are of course free to block the installation of analytics cookies at any time, without your ability to visit the Website and enjoy its contents being affected in any way. 

D. What are profiling cookies and how do they work?

Profiling cookies are used to create a profile of you as a user, based on the preferences and tastes you expressed when browsing the Internet, and to display advertising messages consistent with your profile.

As required by current privacy legislation, your prior consent is required for the installation of such cookies. For this reason, when you access the Website, a banner is displayed prominently, informing you that (i) profiling cookies are used on the Website. You are, of course, free to block the installation of profiling cookies at any time, without your ability to visit the Website and enjoy its contents being affected in any way. If you decide to deactivate behavioural advertising, it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising.

All profiling cookies are installed by third parties, acting as independent data controllers (third-party cookies).

The following categories of cookies are used on the Site:

E. How to manage cookies and object to their use

There are different ways for managing, disabling and deleting cookies.

(1) Change your browser settings

Follow the instructions provided by the developer of the browser you are using to find out how to manage, disable or delete all cookies:

Make your choices carefully. By indiscriminately blocking the receipt of all cookies, including technical cookies, without providing a specific exception for the Website, you may no longer be able to browse the Website or use some or all its features. In addition, if you delete all cookies from your browser, technical cookies may also be removed and, therefore, you may no longer be able to remove the preferences that you have set when using the Website.

(2) Use our interactive tools or those provided by third parties

To disable third party cookies, please refer to the privacy policies of such third parties that install analytics cookies or profiling cookies to learn about the other tools available to you to manage, disable and delete cookies, and more generally to object to their use. Remember that, by disabling third party cookies, (i) you object to their use not only on the Website but on all websites on which they are used and (ii) your ability to browse the Website and use its functionalities will not be affected in any way. When you disable third party cookies you will still see the banner on the home page of the Website relating to cookies; however, if you close the banner, scroll down the home page or click on any element of the home page other than the banner, you will not receive any third-party cookies that you have properly disabled.

F. Other information

As outlined in the introduction to this policy, the Company collects and processes some of your personal data through cookies that it places directly on the Website (first party cookies). The Company acts as the controller of this data. We process your data only by electronic means, in a fully automated manner and without human intermediation. Therefore, our employees and collaborators will never have access to the content of your personal data obtained through cookies. Some of our employees and collaborators, who are authorised by us for this purpose, may carry out maintenance work on the computer systems housing your data, without ever being able to access their actual content. Personal data may be stored on servers managed by third parties (e.g., suppliers of computer systems), who act as data processors on the basis of a specific written agreement by the Company. Please note that, in accordance with the conditions and guarantees provided by law, your data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area, which may not offer a level of privacy and personal data protection comparable to that guaranteed by Italian and European privacy laws. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third party data controllers or disseminated. 

G. Your rights

For information about your rights and how you can exercise such rights, to know the contact details of the data controller and for any other information, please refer to the Privacy Policy for Visitors .
