Cookies are short text files which are sent by the website visited on the User’s terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored so that the terminal in question can be recognized when the User next visits. In fact, every time the User then visits the site, the cookies are re-sent by the User’s terminal to the website.
Every cookie generally contains: the name of the server from which the cookie was sent; the expiry date and a value, usually a single number generated at random by the computer. The website server that transfers the cookie uses this number to recognize the User whenever he or she next visits a site or navigates from one page to another.
Cookies can be installed, not only by the same operator of the site visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that installs cookies via the first site (third party cookies) and is capable of recognizing them. This occurs because there may be elements on the site visited (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that are located on servers other than that of the site visited.
Cookies are generally classified in various types on the basis of:
session cookies (temporary) automatically deleted when the browser is closed.
persistent cookies active until their expiry date or until they are deleted by the User.
first-party cookies sent to the browser directly by the site being visited.
third party cookies sent to the browser by other sites and not the site being visited.
navigation/essential/performance/process or security cookies contribute to the functioning of the site, for example, permitting the User to navigate from one page to another or to access protected areas. If this type of cookie is blocked, the site cannot function correctly;
functionality/preferences/localization/ session status cookies allow information that modifies the behavior or aspect of the site (preferred language, text dimensions and font, geographic area in which it is situated) to be memorized. If they are blocked, the user experience is less functional but is not compromised;
a) first-party or b) third party statistics/analytics cookies with IP window, with no cross-referencing of data (that can be assimilated to technical cookies in terms of objective) are used to collect information and generate statistics to be used on the website in order to understand how visitors interact;
third party statistics/analytics cookies without IP window, with cross-referencing of data, are used to collect information and generate statistics to be used, with scope for User and website identification and tracking in order to understand how visitors interact.
profiling / advertising/tracking cookies or conversions for selection of the advertisement based on what is relevant to a particular User (personalized announcements). Profiling cookies are directed at creating user profiles and are utilized for the purpose of sending advertising messages reflecting the preferences shown by the User while navigating the network.
All the information regarding the cookies used on this site are set out below, together with the necessary indications on how to manage Users’ preferences.
In particular, in addition to the information already given, we point out that this website uses:
These cookies are necessary for our website to function correctly: they are used to navigate or to provide a service requested by the User (for example, to ensure that website sessions function correctly, to memorise specific navigation preferences or to optimise the user’s navigation experience); they are not used for other purposes. Without the benefit of this type of cookie, a number of operations could not be carried out or would become more complex and/or less secure.
Third party analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies
Our website uses third party cookies to manage statistics. In particular, our website uses Google Analytics: this is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”) that utilises cookies deposited on the User’s computer so that statistical analyses can be carried out in aggregate form of the use of the website being visited. We inform you that tools have not been introduced to reduce the identification potentiality of the cookies (by masking significant parts of the IP address) and the third party is not able to cross-reference the collected data with other information it already has at its disposal.

The user can disable Google Analytics selectively, by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on his or her browser. To disable Google Analytics, we refer you to the this link
Social Buttons are buttons found on the website that illustrate the social network icons and allow Users navigating to interact directly with the social network platforms with a click. The Social Buttons used by the website are links that direct the User to the data controller’s account on the social network illustrated. Third party cookies are not therefore installed on the site by using these buttons. The references to Social Buttons used by the website, and the links with which the User can view the privacy notice relating to the handling of data by the Social Network accessed by the buttons, are set out below.

In general, apart from the type of cookies used by this website, we wish to inform Users that, in addition to the protection provided by legislation currently in force, options are open to users that permit navigation without cookies, such as, for example, the following:
blocking third party cookies: third party cookies are not generally essential for navigation, so you can therefore refuse them by default, by means of the functions designed for this purpose on your browser;
activating the option Do Not Track: the option Do Not Track is found in most of the latest generation of browsers. Websites designed to respect this option, whenever activated, should automatically cease to collect certain navigation data. As already pointed out, however, not all websites are set to respect this option (discretional);
activating the "anonymous navigation" method: with this function, you can navigate without leaving any trace of navigation data on the browser. The sites will not remember the User, the pages visited will not be memorized in the history and new cookies will be deleted. The anonymous navigation function does not however guarantee anonymity on the Internet, as its purpose is merely to avoid keeping navigation data in the browser, whilst your navigation data will continue, on the other hand, to remain available to website operators and connection providers;
eliminating cookies directly: specific functions are provided to achieve this in all browsers. Remember however that every time you connect to the web, new cookies are downloaded and the deletion operation should therefore be carried out on a periodic basis. When required, some browsers offer automated systems that delete cookies periodically.
For further clarification on the subject of so-called “cookies”, we advise you to consult the following link:
