In accordance with the ruling from the Italian Authority for the Protection of Personal Data (hereinafter, the “Authority”), setting out guidelines on cookies and other tracking tools, dated 10 June 2021 (hereinafter, the “Cookie Ruling”), Luisa Spagnoli S.P.A. with legal headquarters at Strada Santa Lucia 71, 06125, Perugia - Italy; Tax code and VAT No.: 02742760545, Economic and Administrative Index: PG n. 238003 (hereinafter, “Luisa Spagnoli”), as the owner of the Website (hereinafter, the “Website”), informs users of the following.

This cookie policy, pursuant to articles 13 and 14 of European Regulation 2016/679 (hereinafter, the “Regulation”), constitutes an integral part of the privacy policy, which can be found at the following link:


Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send directly to their terminals (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-sent to the same website on the next visit by the same users (so-called first-party cookies). When browsing on a website, users may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers (so-called third-party cookies) on their terminals; this happens when the website visited contains elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, or specific links to web pages from other domains located on different servers from that of the page requested. In other words, these are cookies installed by a website other than the one you are actually visiting.

Cookies may have a lifespan limited to a single browsing session (so-called session cookies), in which case they are automatically disabled when the browser is closed by the user; alternatively, they may have a predetermined lifespan, in which case they will continue to be stored and active on your hard disk until their expiry date, continuing to collect information over the course of multiple browsing sessions (so-called permanent cookies). 

Cookies are used for different purposes. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the Website and use its services (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, in aggregate form or otherwise, on the number of visitors accessing the Website and how the Website is used (so-called analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to track users’ profiles and show them advertisements on the Website which may be interesting to them, as they are consistent with the user's tastes and purchasing habits (so-called profiling cookies).


The Website uses the following types of first-party technical cookies, the installation of which does not require the users’ consent but for which Luisa Spagnoli is still obliged to provide adequate information:

(a)    Browsing or session cookies: necessary to allow users to browse normally within the Luisa Spagnoli Website and to use its services correctly; as they are not stored on users’ computers, they disappear when the browser is closed;

(b)   Functional cookies: these serve the sole purpose of improving browsing on the Website and making it faster, by memorising certain choices made by the users (such as language preferences).

Therefore, these are tools used by Luisa Spagnoli to ensure, among other things, efficient browsing, session stability, and the memorisation of the selected country and logged-in status throughout the entire session. They also serve to memorise the choices made by users regarding the visibility of certain elements of the page, such as banners for information or communication, for example.

The use of technical cookies and the processing associated with them does not require the prior consent of the users under the current regulations.

In any case, the latter can prevent the installation of technical cookies at any time using their browser settings, though with the knowledge that doing so may complicate, slow down and sometimes block browsing on the Website.

Luisa Spagnoli acts as the data controller exclusively in relation to the first-party cookies installed on the Website.



It is possible that, while users are browsing the Website, certain cookies which are not directly controlled and managed by Luisa Spagnoli may be saved on their device. This happens, for example, when users visit a page which includes content from a third-party website.

In this context, it should be noted that Luisa Spagnoli plays no role in the processing of data derived from this type of cookie, as it is no more than a mere technical intermediary.

Third-party profiling cookies serve to display personalised advertisements on the Website and on other websites, and their functioning is based on users’ browsing activities. This type of cookie could also be used by third parties to display their products and services on the Website.

The Website also uses a number of types of third-party analytics cookies through which the following information, merely by way of example, is collected:

(a)    the number of visitors, page views, and browsing on the Website;

(b)    the effectiveness of campaigns to attract users based on the source of web traffic;

(c)    details on products viewed and possibly downloaded from the Website.

These cookies, like the purposes for which they are used outside of the Website, are the direct and exclusive responsibility of the third parties that install them on the users’ terminals. They serve to show users advertisements in line with their interests (this is the case for third-party profiling/retargeting cookies).

If users do not wish to receive third-party cookies on their terminals, they may choose not to give their consent and can, at any time, use the links provided below or the selection/deselection options within the “Cusomise”area of the cookie banner (accessible at any time using the “Change your consent” button)to opt out of receiving them.

The following table shows all the cookies used on the Website, detailing their specific characteristics and, in cases of third-party cookies, providing links to their respective privacy policies so that users can consciously decide whether to give consent to their use and which cookies to block or delete.


When visiting the Website for the first time, users may (i) accept all cookies by clicking on the “Accept All” button; (ii) refuse all cookies, keeping just the default settings, which only allow the use of the technical cookies necessary for the Website to function; or (iii) select only certain cookies and certain purposes on a one-by-one basis, by clicking on “Customise” and interacting with the cookie banner which is displayed on the first visit and again after six months. 

In all other cases and with each subsequent visit to the Website, users can withdraw or change their consent to the installation of unnecessary cookies by clicking on the “Cookie Policy” link at the bottom of each page of the Website and on the “Change your consent | Withdraw your consent” button that precedes the cookie table.

Moreover, given that most browsers are programmed in such a way as to accept cookies automatically, users can choose not to receive them by accessing their browser settings and disabling their use, following the procedures described at the links below:
