What are cookies?

Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even at a distance of days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behavior and on the use of services. Later in this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term "cookie".  

Warnings for the user

The complete or partial deactivation of cookies may result in the incorrect functioning of the pages and functions of the site.  

Types of Cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:

Session cookies:
these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session, that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize how you move between pages during a browser session and allow you to use the website more efficiently. The site uses cookies of this type. These cookies can be blocked via the browser settings. 

Permanent cookies:
Unlike session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your computer even at the end of the browsing sessions and kept until expiration or cancellation. They therefore allow the site to "recognize" you on your return and remember your preferences and customizations. The site uses cookies of this type. These cookies can be blocked via the browser settings. 

Profiling cookies:
These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The site does not use cookies of this type.  

Management of cookies

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. However, you have the option of deactivating cookies if you wish, generally by changing the navigation settings of your browser. It may also be possible to configure your browser settings to enable the acceptance of specific cookies or to notify you whenever a new cookie is about to be stored on your computer. This will allow you to decide whether to accept or decline cookies.
