1.What are cookies

The cookie is a small text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and your terminal (usually the browser) and is normally used by the website manager to store the information necessary to improve navigation within the site or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net. When you visit the same site again or any other site, the user’s device checks for the presence of a recognized cookie, in order to be able to read the information contained therein. The different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation on the pages of the same site, profiling in order to send targeted promotional messages, analysis on the number of visits to the site, but also the cross-analysis of the behaviors held through the use of different devices in the context of navigation).

During navigation, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies sent from different websites or web servers (so-called third parties), on which some elements may reside (e.g. images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of others domains) present on the site that the user is visiting.

More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the site and automatically expire when the browser is closed. Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on the device for an extended period of time.

However, it is important to underline that in order to regularly provide its online services, the Site Controller needs to use technical cookies. Therefore, if the use of the aforementioned cookies is disabled, for purely technical reasons, the Data Controller will be unable to provide all or some services or to provide them in the manner requested. The specific purposes of the different types of cookies installed on this site are described below.
