Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to a user’s device when they visit a web site. At each subsequent visit cookies are sent back to the website that originated them (first party cookie) or to another site that recognizes them (third party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the user’s device. They have several purposes like, for example, to permit efficient navigation between pages, to remember your favourite sites and, in general, to improve your browsing experience. They also help ensure that advertising content is better targeted to the user and their interests. On the basis of their function and purpose, cookies can be classified as technical, profiling and third party cookies. This site uses technical and third party cookies only.
Technical cookies are those whose use does not require a user’s consent. Among said technical cookies there are essential cookies, also called strictly necessary cookies, which enable functions without which it would not be possible to make full use of the site. These cookies are used exclusively by the company and are first-party cookies. They are saved on the user’s computer only during the current session of the browser.
Technical cookies also include those used to statistically analyse accesses or visits to the site, also called “analytics“, for exclusively statistical purposes, (not marketing or profiling) and collect information in aggregate form without the possibility of identifying the individual user. These cookies can be deactivated and/or deleted via browser settings. All modern browsers allow you to modify the cookie settings. Usually you can find these settings in the “Options” or in the “Preferences” menu of the user’s browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be useful. Or you can use the “Help” option in the browser for more information.
