What are Cookies?
Cookies are packets of data sent by an internet server (such as a website) to a user's internet browser, which are automatically memorised on the PC and sent back to the server each time it subsequently accesses the same website. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies automatically by default. Cookies are usually installed:
· Directly by the website owner and/or administrator (s.c. first-party cookies);
This website may use the following cookies, also in combination, classified on the basis of the instructions given by the Privacy Guarantor and of the Decisions communicated by the European Working Group pursuant to Article 29 of the GDPR:
Sessions cookies: these cookies are not permanently stored on the user's computer and are deleted upon closing the browser. Their use is strictly limited to sending the session identifiers needed for secure and efficient Website browsing without having to resort to other IT procedures which may compromise the privacy of the users while they are browsing.
Persistent cookies: these cookies are permanently stored on the computer's hard disk until their expiration or cancellation by users/visitors. By using persistent cookies visitors who access the website (or any other persons using the same computer) are automatically recognised each time they visit. Visitors may change their browser settings to accept/block all cookies or to view a notice each time a cookie is used and to choose whether to accept it or not. Users may change the predefined configuration and disable cookies (block them permanently), by setting the highest level of protection.
Technical cookies: these cookies are used to enable the user to be identified, to use multi-media content such as flash player or to enable him/her to select the navigation language. Therefore, it is not normally necessary to obtain the prior and informed consent of the user. Cookies used to statistically analyse the number of visits to the website also fall into this category only if they are exclusively used for statistical purposes and by obtaining the data in aggregate form.
Non-technical cookies: these cookies are used for profiling and marketing purposes. Their use on users' terminals is forbidden if they have not previously been adequately informed and have not given their valid consent according to the opt-in technique.
Analytics: these cookies are used to collect and analyse statistical information about access/visits to the website. In some cases, along with other data such as login credentials to access secure areas (email address and password), they may be used to create a user profile (personal habits, websites visited, downloads, types of interactions, etc.).
