What are cookies?
A cookie is a short text sent to your browser from a visited website. It allows the Site to store information about your visit, such as your preferred language and other settings. This can facilitate your next visit and increase your usefulness of the Site. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the Web would be a much more frustrating experience.
Cookies are used for various purposes. For example, we use them to count the number of visitors we receive on a page, to help you contact us and in general to try to provide an ever better service. Actually cookies customise your web experience.For ex. you will be recognised the next time you visit the same Site and you won’t have to enter all your details again.
Below is a brief explanation of which types of cookies can be used.
This type of cookie allows the proper functioning of certain sections of the Site. They are of two categories: permanent or session ones.
- permanent cookies: they remain in operation even when you have closed the browser. For example, they remember your login details and password so you don’t have to type them in every time you use the Site. Once the browser is closed they are not destroyed but remain up to a preset expiration date.
- session cookies: they expire when the browser is closed.
They will therefore always be used and sent, unless the user does not change the settings in their browser (see paragraph below) being to the detriment of the functionality of the Site itself.
Cookies in this category are used to collect information on the use of the Site. This information allows anonymous statistical analysis.
Analytical cookies are sent from the Site itself or from third-party domains.
Analysis cookies for third-party services
These cookies are used in order to collect information on the use of the Site by users anonymously such as: pages visited, time spent, origins of the traffic of origin, geographic origin, age, gender and interests for the purpose of marketing campaigns .

This type of cookie integrates features developed by third parties within the pages of the Site such as icons and preferences expressed in social networks with the aim to share Site content or linked to the use of third-party software services (such as software for generating maps and additional software that offer additional services). These cookies are sent from third-party domains and from partner Sites that offer their functionality among the pages of the Site.
These cookies are necessary to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user within the pages of the Site.

COOKIES MANAGEMENT IN THE BROWSER
Some people prefer to disable cookies and for this reason almost all browsers allow to manage them in line with user preferences.
In some browsers you can set rules to manage cookies Site by Site, which gives you more precise control over your privacy. This means that you can disable cookies for all Sites, except for those you trust.
Here are the links you can address to deepen the issue specific to the most common browsers:
• Internet Explorer
All major modern browsers have a “private” browsing mode that allows you to browse Sites without logging history. Usually all cookies set are destroyed at the end of these modes.
In general, it is possible to object to the personal data processing by the major advertising providers using the following Site:
and following the instructions contained therein.
Please note that, even if you exercise your right to object, you will still receive advertisements, but no longer any ads tailored to your interests.
Should you cancel cookies in the future, you must exercise your right to object again.
The same even if you use a different browser.
