Cookies are short pieces of text that a website saves on the computer or mobile device of the user who is surfing the site. Thanks to these cookies, the website is able to remember the actions and the preferences expressed by the user (for example, authentication to reserved areas, the selected language or other display settings) so that the user does not have to re-enter them when returning to the same site or browsing from one page to the other. Cookies are also used to verify whether the visits are made by new or past visitors, and to store certain information, anonymous and not personal, pertaining to their navigation of the website pages (entry or exit links, navigation from one page to the other, amount time spent on the website, etc. ).
By visiting the website, when the users click on any link or scroll through the pages, they accept the installation on their website of the “proprietary” and/or “third-party” cookies indicated in “List of cookies used” provided here below.
Disabling the storing of all or some cookies may compromise navigation of the website (or some parts of it) or make it impossible to use certain functionalities.
Type of cookies
Cookies differ depending on their duration, on the domain that installed them and on their function.
These are temporary files stored on the user’s device until the user leaves the website (or the browser is closed).
These are files stored on the user’s device and kept even after the user leaves the website and closes the browser. They are deleted only after the expiry date set in the cookie itself.
These are files installed on the user’s device directly by the website being visited by the user.
These are files installed by external websites, via the code integrated in the pages of the site the user is visiting. Examples of third-party cookies are those installed by the social networks plugins (for sharing the contents) or cookies that analyse the visits.
Necessary “technical” cookies
These cookies are crucial for proper operation of the website pages. Without these cookies, some functionalities may be compromised and access to the site contents may be limited. These cookies allow, for example, to keep track of the authentication carried out by a user or a website administrator. Cookies of this type do not collect any personal information about the user.
Functional “technical” cookies
These cookies are used to save choices made by the user in order to improve the navigation (for instance the language, or to pre-fill a form with the name used before). This type of cookie may include personal information (for instance, the user’s name). Without these cookies, some functionalities and the navigation through the website pages may be compromised.
These cookies are used to understand whether the users are new or return visitors, how they use the website, how they move from one page to another, how much time they stay on the pages and on the site, and from which geographical area they reached the website. This data does not identify the users individually, but is aggregated anonymously by analytical tools. Disabling these cookies does not compromise in any way the functionalities offered by the website.
Social widget cookies
Some widgets made available by the social networks (for example, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps, etc.) may use their own cookies or third-party cookies. Their disabling does not compromise website use, except for the sections in which widgets may be installed (for example, for the integration of videos or maps) and, in some cases, the possibility of quick sharing of the contents or the possibility to comment some areas of the website.
Advertising cookies are installed to show the site visitors contents related to their preferences. Hence, they may be used to show advertising contents aimed at the person’s interests. Cookies of this type work in collaboration with third-party websites and may keep track of past navigation on pages existing on different domains. They usually keep track of the user’s IP address in addition to other information, some of which may be personal.
Managing and deleting cookies
To disable the use of all or only some cookies, you need to change the settings in your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, Safari, Opera, etc.).
Browsers are usually pre-set to accept cookies, unless they are configured otherwise by the user.
It is possible to have the browser block certain or all cookies, or have it display a message to the user before it proceeds to install a cookie.
