What are cookies

The cookie is a small text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and your terminal (usually the browser) and is normally used by the website manager to store the information necessary to improve the navigation within the site or to send advertisements in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of web browsing. When you visit the same site or any other site again, the user’s device checks for the presence of a recognized cookie, so that you can read the information contained in it. The different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation on the pages of the same site, profiling in order to send targeted promotional messages, analysis on the number of visits to the site).

During the navigation, the user may also receive on his terminal cookies sent from different sites or web servers (c.d. third parties), on which may reside certain elements (e.g. images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the user is visiting.

More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the site and automatically expire when the browser is closed. Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on the device for an extended period of time.

The specific purpose of the different types of cookies installed on this site are described below.

You can turn off cookies by following the information below.

Features and purpose of cookies installed by the site

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings so that you are notified when cookies are sent or so you can reject the cookies themselves. You can also delete cookies that have already been installed on your device.

If you want to restrict or block browser cookies that are already installed on your device, you can do so through the setting of the browser itself: the “Settings” feature in the browser should tell you how.
