What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored on users’ terminals by the server of the website they are visiting. They contain information related to the users’ browsing that can be read by the server that sent them in subsequent browsing sessions.

Types of Cookies We may use on this website

  • Technical-strictly necessary cookies: they are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies are useful because they can make it faster and quicker to navigate and enjoy the web, as they intervene to facilitate certain procedures.
  • Function cookies: they allow the website to remember the choices made by the users (for example, the language or geographic area in which they are located) and re-propose them at subsequent accesses in order to provide better and personalized services (for example, they can be used to propose content similar to that previously requested by the user).
  • Statistical cookies: they are used to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website itself, and thus process general statistics on the service and its use.
  • Profiling cookies: these are used to monitor and profile users while they are browsing, study their movements and web browsing or consumption habits, including for the purpose of sending targeted and personalized service advertisements.

Depending on the entity that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, cookies are distinguished into “first-party” cookies or “third-party” cookiesFirst-party cookies are installed directly by the website operator itself.  Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are cookies managed by a different website than the one on which the user is browsing but linked to it, for the management of particular types of content. These are usually images, sounds, links or other elements that reside outside the website being visited.
