What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites on next visit. Cookies called "third parties" are, instead, set by a website different from the one that the user is visiting. This is because in each site can be present elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages in other domains, etc.) that reside on different servers from the one of the site visited. Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of electronic authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information about specific configurations about users accessing servers, preference storage, etc.


Technical cookies

They are cookies used to make possible browsing or providing a service requested by an user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed by the owner of the website. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking activities (displaying bank statement, bank transfer, paying bills, etc.), for which the cookies, that allow making and keeping users’ identification with the session, are indispensable. Essential cookies cannot be disabled by using the functions of this website. In general, cookies can be disabled completely in your browser at any time.


Profiling cookies

They are cookies used for tracking the user's navigation on the network and for creating profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies it’s possible to transmit advertising messages to the user's terminal in line with its already expressed preferences browsing the web. Our site does not use cookies of this kind.


Third-party cookies

When browsing a website, it is possible to receive cookies from the site you are browsing (“owners”) or from websites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A remarkable example is represented by the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn. Sections of the page being visited may be directly generated by such sites and integrated within the page of the hosting site. Most often, the use of social plugins is designed to share content on a social network. The presence of such plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all websites managed by thirds. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information you should refer to. In order to ensure greater transparency and convenience, here are some web links containing the procedures and information needed to manage the cookies.
