Cookie Policy

This section describes how, its partners and third parties use cookies and similar technologies.


Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's terminal equipment by visited websites; they are stored in the user's terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites. They are used for several purposes, they have different features and may be used both by the owner of the website you are now navigating and by other websites ("third party" cookies). As shown below you will find all the information on cookies stored by this website as well as all the information you need to manage your cookie preferences.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed. Other cookies "survive" when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent user visits. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Types of cookies

For the purposes of the legislation contained in the Privacy Code, cookies can be divided into two macro-categories based on their use: "technical" cookies and "profiling" cookies.

Technical Cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service "(see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). These are cookies used to browse or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and / or less secure, such as, for example, home banking (account statement display, bank transfers, bill payments, etc.), for the which cookies, which allow you to make and keep the user's identification within the session, are essential. They belong to the following categories:

  • Navigation or session cookies, guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas). Disabling these cookies will negatively affect the performance of the sites and may make features and service unavailable.
  • Analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
  • Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service made to the same.

For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Privacy Code, which the site manager, if he uses only such devices, may provide in the manner he deems most suitable.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user in the context of web browsing. Because of the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private sphere of users, they require the explicit consent of the user.

Third-party cookies

During the navigation on a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent from different websites or web servers (i.e. "third parties"). As an example, there may be cookies linked to the services provided by Google Analytics or cookies due to the presence of "social plugins" (for example for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn), generally aimed at sharing content.

How the site uses cookies and for what purposes

The IMQ Website does not use its own profiling cookies. Instead, in some cases, technical cookies can be used, including in particular session cookies (for example JSESSIONID, PHPSESSIONID, ASPSESSIONID, Flash Cookies etc.) that are deleted when the browser is closed, in order to offer some services such as authentication to reserved areas or other technical functions. These cookies can be disabled and deleted through the browser settings, as indicated below. Disabling these cookies may negatively affect the performance of the sites and may make certain features and services unavailable. Instead, third-party cookies are installed for the following purposes: interaction with social networks and external platforms, statistics, payment management and display of content from external platforms. For these, without prejudice to the possibility of disabling them through the browser settings as indicated below, a link is provided to the extended information and to the consent forms of third parties that install cookies:
