Cookies used on this website

Cookies are used on this website to ensure the correct presentation of its contents.

The website also uses:

Google Analytics, a third-party cookie that provides an anonymous and aggregate analysis of the behaviour of visitors to the website. For more information on how Google Analytics works you can view Google’s policy at the following address:

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that a website can send to the user’s device when browsing (be it a PC, a laptop, a smartphone, a tablet), and are usually stored directly in the browser used for browsing. The same website that created and sent them can then recognise and read cookies that are on the device to gather information of various kinds.

How many different types of cookies are there?

There are two basic macro-categories, each with different characteristics:

technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are generally necessary for the proper operation of the website and to allow browsing. Without them the visitor might not be able to view the pages correctly or use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website or to store the language and display settings and so on.  Technical cookies can be broken down further into browsing cookies, which guarantee normal browsing and use of the website (for example, making a purchase or authenticating access to restricted areas); analytical cookies, similar to technical cookies only when used to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and how they visit the website; functional cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service offered.

Profiling cookies are used to create user profiles and usually to send advertising messages that reflect his/her preferences as manifested while browsing the Internet.

Cookies can also be classified as:

Session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.) is closed.

Persistent cookies, which – unlike session cookies – remain in the browser for a certain period of time, even when it is closed. They are used, for example, to recognise the device when it connects to the website, speeding up user authentication operations.

First-party cookies, that is to say cookies generated and managed directly by the operator of the website that the user is browsing.

Third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website that the user is browsing (based on a contract between the website owner and the third party).
