Management and function of Cookies.
What is a cookie and what is it used for?
A cookie is a small string of text, typically stored in a file, that a site sends to your browser and saves on your computer when you visit websites.
Cookies are used to operate the websites more efficiently, to improve performance, but also to provide information to site owners. Cookies used on the website are either persistent (they remain stored until they expire, on the hard disk of the user/visitor's personal computer) or session (that are not permanently stored on the user/visitor's personal computer and disappear with the closing of the browser).
What kind of cookie does this website use and for what purpose?
Our website uses different types of cookies, each of which has a specific function. Below we list the specific types used:
TYPE: Browser cookies
FUNCTION: These cookies allow the website to work properly and are used to collect information about how visitors use the website. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve the website. The cookies collect information anonymously, including the number of visitors to the website, how the visitors arrived at the website and the pages they visited.
TYPE: Analytical cookies
FUNCTION: These cookies are used, for example, by Google Analytics to process statistical analyses about the browsing habits of website users either through computer or mobile phone, the number of pages visited and the number of clicks made on a page during website browsing.

TYPE: Third-party cookies
FUNCTION: These cookies are used by third-party companies. The use of these cookies does not normally entail the processing of personal data. Third-party cookies come from ads from other websites, such as pop-ups or banners, that are present on the website displayed. They can be used to record the use of the website for marketing purposes, gathering information on the use of the website, keywords used to reach the website. These cookies collect information anonymously. The cookies in this category are sent from the website itself or from third-party domains. To remove some third-party cookies you can use the following tool: www.youronlinechoices.com/it/ which currently only works for advertising profiling cookies (maybe in the future it will also be widened to Analytics) and only detect cookies from members of www.youronlinechoices.com/it/. For this reason, this tool is not able to remove all third-party cookies.
TYPE: Persistent cookies
FUNCTION: These persistent cookies are used only to facilitate browsing within the website and its correct use, to facilitate access to services that require authentication (avoiding users having to re-enter authentication credentials for each access to services), as well as for statistical purposes, to know which areas of the website have been visited. Session cookies are used only to transmit the session identifiers required to enable a safe and efficient browsing of the website.
TYPE: Session cookies
FUNCTION: Session cookies used on the website avoid using other techniques potentially prejudicial to the privacy of the users/visitors and are also used to improve service delivery.
TYPE: Cookies for the integration of third-party functionality
Cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functionality in the website (for example, forms for comments or social network icons that allow visitors to share website content). Cookies in this category can be sent from partner domains or whoever offers the functionality on the website. The Data Controller is not obliged to request the user's consent for technical cookies, as they are strictly necessary for the provision of the service. For other types of cookies, users may express their consent, in accordance with local regulations, via specific browser settings and computer programs or using tools that are easy and clear for the user to use. The Data Controller reminds the User that it is possible to change cookie preferences at any time. It is also possible to disable cookies at any time from the browser, but this may prevent the user from using certain parts of the website.
This website may contain links to other websites that have their own privacy policies. These privacy policies may be different from the one adopted by the Data Controller, who therefore is not liable for third-party sites.
Under art. 122 second paragraph of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 the consent to the use of such cookies is expressed by the person using the individual setting that has freely chosen for the browser used for browsing the website, subject to the user's ability to communicate at all times to the Data Controller their will regarding data managed by means of cookies that the browser itself has agreed.
