1.What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are memorized and later retransmitted to the same sites when the user visits them again. When browsing on a site, the user may also receive in his terminal cookies from various sites or from web servers (That is, “third- party” cookies); that happens because in the visited web site there may be elements such as images, maps, sounds or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers different from the one where the requested page is found. In other words, they are those cookies that are set by a web site different from the one that is being visited.

The cookies are used to perform IT authentications, the mounting of sessions and the memorization of specific information regarding the user accessing the server, and are normally present in great number in any user’s browser.
Some operations couldn’t be completed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are technically necessary. The cookies can remain in the system for long periods, and can also contain a unique identification code. This enables the sites that use them to keep track of the user’s browsing within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes, creating that way a personalized profile of the user based on the pages that he has visited and showing him targeted advertising (Behavioral Advertising).

The site uses cookies for authentication purposes, therefore only at the moment when the cookie policy is accepted.

Such information on privacy can differ from the one adopted by the owner, who therefore does not respond for third-party sites.

The consent to use such cookies is expressly given by the user through the individual setting that he has freely chosen for the browser used for the site, without prejudice to the user’s power to communicate at any moment to the processing controller his own will regarding the data managed through the cookies accepted by the browser itself.
