What is a cookie?
Cookies are short text files that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. On each subsequent visit, cookies are redirected to the website that originated them (first-party cookies) or to another website that recognizes them (third-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize your device. They have various purposes such as, for example, to enable you to navigate efficiently between pages, remember your favourite sites and, in general, improve your browsing experience. They also help to ensure that advertising content displayed online is more targeted to a user and their interests. Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies, profiling cookies, third party cookies. This Site uses technical cookies and third party cookies.
Technical and aggregate statistics cookies
Technical cookies do not require your prior consent to be installed and used. These cookies are essential to enable you to browse a website, use all its features and improve its operation. Without these cookies, which are necessary, a website could not provide certain services or functions and navigation would not be as smooth and easy as it should be. They can be divided into the following subcategories:
- Browsing cookies, through which you can save your browsing preferences and optimize your browsing experience.
- Analytics cookies, by means of which we acquire statistical information about how users navigate. This information is processed in aggregate and anonymous form.
- Functionality cookies, including third party cookies, used to activate specific features of the Sites and necessary to provide or improve the service.
Technical cookies show, for example, which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to see what are the recurring patterns of use of a website, help you understand any difficulties you encounter in using it and show the effectiveness of the advertising that is published on the site.
Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled using website features.
They can be completely disabled in your browser at any time, as indicated in the following section “How to disable cookies from your browser”.
