What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to the terminal; storing browsing terminal equipment (usually the user's browser) by visited websites; they are stored to be re-transmitted to the websites on the user´s subsequent visits to those websites.
Cookies are distinguished according to the entity that installs them on the user's terminal:
Proprietary cookies (“first-party”), installed by the website operator that the user is visiting to allow the user to navigate more efficiently and/or to monitor the user’s actions;
Third-party cookies, in the course of browsing the website, the user may also receive on the user’s terminal equipment cookies that are sent by sites or web servers other than the one the user is currently visiting, for the same purposes as those mentioned above.
Cookies are used for different purposes and differ from each other precisely based on the purpose for which they are used. They are distinguished in:
“technical cookies” used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network or to the extent strictly necessary for the provision of a service explicitly requested by the user: they allow the website that has installed them to remember, for example, the preferences expressed by the user while browsing or to make a purchase or to authenticate. The user's prior consent is not required for the installation of these cookies, while the obligation to provide information remains in place;
“statistical cookies” used to monitor the performance of the website, for example, to find out the number of pages visited or the number of users who have viewed a particular section. The analysis of these cookies generates anonymous and aggregated statistical data without any reference to the identity of the website users. They are also useful for evaluating possible changes and improvements to the website itself.
“Profiling cookies” aimed at creating profiles relating to the user allow the website that installed them to monitor the user's browsing also to send advertisements or offer services in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the web. In light of the highly invasive nature of these cookies, Italian and European law requires users to be informed appropriately about their use to give their valid consent to the use.
FIRST-PARTY TECHNICAL NAVIGATION COOKIES
Strictly necessary “navigation or session” cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to navigate throughout the website and make full use of its features, such as accessing the various protected areas of the website. Without these cookies, some necessary services, such as filling in a form for a competition, authentication for access to restricted areas or making a purchase, cannot be used.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices made by the user (such as name, language or region of origin) allowing the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria and provide advanced personalised functions. These cookies can also be used to remember changes made to the size of text, fonts and other parts of web pages that can be customised. They may also be used to provide services that you have requested, such as watching a video or comments on a blog, and storing the consent given by the user.
“Performance-oriented” analytical cookies
These cookies collect information on how users use a website, e.g. which pages are visited most, and whether they receive error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information collected by cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. They are only used to improve the operation of a website.
The website uses tracking technology from Google Analytics to perform statistical analyses of the website to constantly improve and optimise the service.
