Extended information on cookies
What are Cookies
Cookies are small text strings that the site visited by the user sends to his terminal, where they are stored to be retransmitted on subsequent visits by the same user. During navigation, the user may also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent by different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the user is visiting may reside.
Cookies are used for different purposes and have different characteristics; for example, to perform computer authentication, to monitor sessions, to store information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc.
There are different types of Cookies in relation to the purposes pursued by those who use them. In this regard, the following categories are identified:
Technical Cookies are those that allow the correct functioning of the Site and guarantee the use of its services and do not require the user’s consent but are installed automatically when the user accesses the Site.
Among the non-technical Cookies there are:
Profiling cookies that are designed to create user-related profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web.
Third-party cookies that can be installed on the user’s terminal, not only by the operator of the site the user is visiting, but also by the operators of different sites that install Cookies through the first (so-called “third parties”).
Types of Cookies used by the Site
A) TECHNICAL COOKIES
The Site uses technical cookies that allow you to recognize users who return to visit the Site and their data in order to avoid having to enter the same information several times.
These cookies do not require the user’s prior consent to be installed and used.
The technical cookies used on the Site are the following:
– navigation or session cookies, through which normal navigation and use of the Site is guaranteed. For example, they allow users to authenticate themselves to access reserved areas. These cookies are necessary to navigate the Site;
– functionality, by means of which specific Site functions are activated and necessary to provide the Services offered or to improve them. In particular, these Cookies allow the user to be recognised on subsequent accesses so that he or she does not have to enter his or her data every time each time he or she visits the Site, and allow navigation according to a series of previously selected criteria (such as, for example, the language used). Functional Cookies are not indispensable to the use of the Site but improve the quality and browsing experience.
Although technical Cookies do not require the prior consent of the user to be installed and used, they can still be managed by the user through the browser settings (in the section “How to manage Cookie settings”).
B) NON-TECHNICAL COOKIES
The Site uses third party analytical cookies. Please note that the Site does not have direct control over such Cookies (it can neither directly install nor delete them). The user can however manage these cookies and deny the consent previously given to their use through the browser settings in the section “How to manage the cookies used by the Site”.
Through third party Analytical Cookies we acquire statistical information on the number of users visiting the Site and how they navigate. This information is processed in aggregate and anonymous form.
Such Cookies are assimilated to technical cookies and therefore do not require the prior consent of the user in order to be installed and used.
How to disable Cookies via browser configuration
