WHAT COOKIES ARE
Cookies are computer files or partial data that can be saved on your computer (or other internet-enabled devices, for example smartphones or tablets) when you visit a site. Usually a cookie contains the name of the website from which the cookie itself comes, the “life span” of the cookie (ie how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Two types of cookies can be used on sites: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”.
• session cookies: they are temporary cookies that remain on your device until the moment you leave the site.
• persistent cookies: they are cookies that remain on your device for much longer or until you delete it manually (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the ‘life span’ of the cookie in question and the settings of your browser).
Some of the pages you visit may also collect information through ‘pixel tags’ (also known as the ‘clear gifs’) which may be shared with third parties who directly assist promotional activities and the development of websites. For example, information on the use of websites relating to people who visit the sites can be shared with advertising agencies to target advertising banners on websites in an optimal way.
Another subdivision of the type of Cookie – indicated by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data – is between Technical Cookies, Profiling Cookies, First-party Cookies, Third-party Cookies.
• Technical Cookies: these are the cookies used to navigate or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and / or less secure, such as home banking activities (display of the bank statement, bank transfers, payment of bills, etc.), for such as cookies, which allow you to make and maintain user identification during the session, are indispensable.
• Profiling cookies: these are the cookies used to track the user’s browsing on the net and create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies, advertising messages can be transmitted to the user’s terminal in line with the preferences already expressed by the same user in online browsing.
• First-part cookies (cookies first generated or managed directly by the manager of the website on which the user is browsing.
• Third-party cookies (third-part cookies), which are generated and managed by subjects other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the owner of the website and the third part)
The site uses “technical cookies” as identified by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data with Provision of 8 May 2014, ie those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or user to provide this service “(see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code).
The site therefore uses:
1. navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to authenticate to access restricted areas);
2. analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
3. functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

• Analytical: these are the cookies used to collect and analyze statistical information on accesses / visits to the website. In some cases, associated with other information such as the credentials entered for access to restricted areas (your e-mail address and password), they can be used to profile the user (personal habits, visited sites, downloaded contents, types of interactions carried out, etc.).
