What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text strings. They are created by a server and stored on the hard drive of the computer, or any other device used by the user to access a website (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and then be retransmitted to the website on the user’s next visit. Cookies allow, for example, activation of functionalities and personalisation designed to facilitate user interaction with a website, to track items in a shopping cart or information for filling in a computer form.

With regard to duration, cookies can be classified as session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration. Persistent cookies they are stored permanently on your computer or other user device and have a variable duration. Cookies that expire at the end of a session (usually when the user closes the browser) are useful, for example, for security purposes, such as when the user accesses their email inbox or a reserved area of a website. Instead, cookies that are stored for a longer period (between one session and another) are used, for example, to remember user preferences (such as the language of navigation on the site) or to offer targeted advertising.

With reference to their origin, cookies can be classified as either first party cookies or third-party cookies. First Third-party cookies are installed directly from the website the user is visiting, whereas third-party cookies are installed by a different domain than the one the user is visiting, for example, if the website incorporates elements from other websites, such as images or social media plug-ins.

What cookies does this site use and for what purposes?

The use of third-party cookies is governed by the rules established by the third parties themselves, and the user is therefore invited to read the information on the processing of personal data of third parties indicated in the illustrative tables of the cookies used by the Site.
