Privacy Policy


R1 S.p.A., with registered office in Rome, Via Monte Carmelo 5, 00166 Rome, hereby provides the user, in accordance with art. 13 of the data protection act and in compliance with the directive No 229/2014 of the Italian Data Protection Authority the information that describes how to manage the website concerning the use of technical and analytical cookies and the use of profiling cookies.



Cookies are small text files which are sent to your device (usually to the browser) when you visit a website. The device memorizes the cookies received to send them back to the originating website on each future visit. While visiting a website, the device you are using might also receive cookies originating from other websites and webservers (commonly known as “third parties”) because such websites and webservers include elements (e.g. pictures, maps, sounds, links to pages on other domains) that are included in the website you are visiting.


According to the purpose for which the data are processed, cookies are classified in “technical” cookies and “behavioural profiling” cookies.

  • Technical cookies are used only to “transmit a communication via an electronic communication network, or just to allow a service provider to provide the service requested by the subscriber or the end-user” (art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Italian Personal Data Protection Code). Such cookies are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or administrator. To technical cookies belong: “navigation” (or “session” cookies), that enable the normal use of the website (e.g. they allow the user to complete a purchase or to authenticate and access reserved areas);
  • “analytics” cookies, that belong to technical cookies in the case they are used directly by the website administrator to gather group data on the numbers of visitors the website has and on how such visitors move in the website;
  • “functionality” cookies, allowing the user to surf the web according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, purchased products) and providing him a better service.

The installation of such cookies does not need the preventive authorization of the user, who, nevertheless, must be informed according to art. 13 of the Italian Personal Data Protection Code. The information modality about “technical” cookies use is up to the website administrator. “Behavioural profiling” cookies are aimed at creating a profile of the user to send him marketing messages according to the preferences he shows when surfing the web. Both the European and Italian laws state that the user must be informed when such cookies are used, for him to give his expressed consent. Behavioural profiling cookies are referred to in art. 122 of the Italian Personal Data Protection Code: “storing information about a subscriber’s or user’s computer or accessing already stored information is allowed only if the subscriber or user is fully informed according to art. 13 paragraph 3 and gives his expressed consent” (art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Italian Personal Data Protection Code).According to their time duration, cookies are classified in “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies.

  • “Session” cookies are temporary cookies disappearing from the computer when the user leaves the visited website or closes the browser. They are usually stored in the cache memory of the computer.
  • “Persistent” cookies stay in the user’s computer even after the browser is closed and until they expire or the user cancels them. The expiry date is established by the website using the cookies and the aim of such cookies is to draw the user’s habits for future visits: the website will read the stored information on the user and adapt itself to his preferences.

R1 spa website uses Session cookies and Analytics cookies.
