What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are sent to the browser and saved on the user’s device when they access and use websites. Usually these small strings of text are stored with the aim of being re-transmitted to the site visited during subsequent accesses.
Why are cookies used?
Cookies are used for various purposes, such as performing computer authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, storing preferences, etc. In practice, the cookies we use in some areas of our site allow us to: check whether it has already been visited by the same user, understand which pages of the site are most visited (identifying the pages visited and for how long), make the site more compliant with user requests and simpler navigation, as well as ensuring the user that the information on the site in future visits responds to his preferences.
What are the types of cookies?
There are different types of cookies that perform different functions and to which different rules apply, depending on whether or not they interfere with the rights and freedoms of users.
With reference to the purposes, cookies can be distinguished into:
used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service, explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, to provide such service.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
navigation cookies, which allow the site to function correctly, allowing normal navigation and the provision of services requested by the user (such as, for example, making a purchase or authentication for access to restricted areas). Without the use of this type of cookie, some operations would be less secure or more complex and, in some cases, could not be carried out. These cookies are not stored permanently on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed;
functional cookies, which allow the site, based on the user’s instructions, to memorize some of the information of the navigation carried out by the same – remembering the user’s choices and automating some procedures (such as login) or personalizing access and navigation of the site (e.g. user language) – in order to be reused in subsequent navigation, improving the service offered and the quality of navigation;
analytical cookies (assimilated to technical cookies only if used directly by the site manager in order to optimize the functionality of the site by collecting data from users who use it), which allow information to be collected in aggregate – and therefore anonymous – form in order to conduct internal statistical analyzes of the site navigation methods (for example on the number of users who visit the site, their geographical origin, the quality and quantity of the pages visited).
The installation of these cookies does not require the prior consent of users.
used to track users’ browsing habits with the aim of creating profiles of their tastes, habits, choices made or other information. The purpose is to send the profiled user advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing online. In consideration of the particular invasiveness that these devices can have in the private sphere of users, the latter must be adequately informed about their use and express their valid consent.
Cookies (technical and profiling) can be distinguished based on their “origin” into:
“first-party” cookies if set by the operator of the site the user is visiting;
“third party” cookies if set by managers of websites other than the one the user is visiting; this happens for example when on the website the user is visiting there are elements such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. The use of data collected by these external operators through cookies is subject to their respective privacy policies.
What cookies does this site use?
Cookies are used for user profiling, nor are other tracking methods used. This site uses:
First-party technical cookies
These are active by default when the user’s browser is set in this sense: the user can exclude them by deactivating them directly through the specific settings options of the browser specifically used for browsing (see the links below, see par. E ).
However, it should be noted that technical cookies, if deactivated, could jeopardize the correct functioning of the site and not allow the user to fully and effectively benefit from the services offered by the site itself: to benefit from all the site’s features, it is advisable therefore parameterize your browser to allow its introduction.

How can the user manage and disable cookies?

Disabling third-party cookies, however, does not affect navigability in any way.
