What is a cookie?
Cookies are small strings of text downloaded to the device when visiting a website. At each subsequent visit, cookies are sent 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 the user’s device. They have different purposes such as, for example, allowing you to navigate efficiently between pages, remembering your favorite sites, and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to a user and his interests. Depending on the function and use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies, analysis, and profiling cookies and third-party cookies.
Even the so-called performance cookies also belong to this category and are often called analytics cookies. These are the cookies that collect information on the use of the user experience of a website and that allow improving its functioning. Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled using the functions of this website. In general, cookies can be completely disabled in your browser at any time.
These cookies allow you to remember the choices that users make on the site and the services specifically requested to provide the most advanced and personalized services. The use of these cookies requires the acquisition of the user’s consent in accordance with the privacy and data protection laws (art. 6 § 1 letter. A of EU Regulation / 679/2016). Consent is acquired through a banner visible to users on the first visit on the website. This consent can be revoked at any time by following the instructions in the “how to disable cookies” section of this policy. The refusal to consent to the use of profiling cookies does not interfere with the possibility of accessing the site, with the exception of the inability to access these functions or functions that use these cookies.
This information may be shared with other parties, for example, advertisers, who may use their own cookies to collect information on the activities carried out by users on the website.
Advertisers can use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertising.
The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s informed consent. These cookies are not controlled

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or any logout command is executed. Other cookies remain when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
