What are cookies
Cookies are short fragments of text (letters/numerals), which allow the web server to memorise information about the customer (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or in subsequent visits, also for long periods (persistent cookies). The cookies are memorised, on the basis of the user’s preference, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies are useable to collect information on the user’s behaviour and on the use of the services.
Subsequently in this document, we will make reference to cookies and to all the similar technologies using always the term “cookies”.
What are the main types of Cookies
Cookies which are strictly necessary, or technical cookies - These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of our site and are used to manage login and access to the reserved functions of the site, and in general to speed up, improve or customize the level of service to users. The duration of cookies is either strictly limited to the working session (they are deleted once the browser is closed), or of longer duration, aimed at recognizing the visitor´s computer. Their deactivation may compromise the use of the services accessible by login, while the public part of the site normally remains usable.
Analysis and performance cookies - These cookies are used to collect and analyse the traffic and use of the site anonymously and in aggregate form. These cookies, first or third-party, while not identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They make it possible to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
Profiling cookies - These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience, in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the net. By virtue of the particular invasiveness that these devices can have with regards to users’ private lives, European and Italian legislation provide that the user must be suitably informed on their use and express their own valid consent.
Third-party cookies - By visiting a website it is possible to receive cookies from both the visited site ("owner") and from sites managed by other organizations ("third parties") through the first site. An example is the presence of "social plugins" (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant privacy policies, to which reference should be made.
Management of third-party cookies
To guarantee greater transparency and convenience, a description and web address of the policy and the procedures for managing cookies is given for each third-party site installable through this site, besides offering the possibility to refuse consent for the installation of the cookies.
It’s a service for analysing web traffic provided by Google, used to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies). Google Analytics can collect and analyse in anonymous form information regarding use behaviour. This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to draw up reports on the websites. This site, through the anonymising of the user’s IP address, does not use (and does not consent third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address to any other data possessed by Google, nor links an IP address to the identity of a user. Google can also communicate this information to third parties if this is imposed by law or in the event that third parties process the aforementioned information on behalf of Google.
For further information, reference should be made to the link indicated below:
The user can selectively disable the actions of Google Analytics by installing on their own browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable the action of Google Analytics, reference should be made to the following link:

The disabling of third-party cookies does not affect browsing in any way. The setting can be defined more specifically for different sites and web applications. The best browsers, moreover, permit the definition of different settings for own cookies and for third-party cookies.
