What are Cookies?
“Cookies” are small files with information that a website stores on a user’s computer (usually in the web browser such as Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Edge, etc.), so that every time the user connects to the website, the latter retrieves said information and to offer the user related services. A typical example of such information is the user’s preferences on a website, as indicated by the choices the user makes on the specific website (e.g. selection of specific “buttons”, searches, advertisements, etc.).
General cookie classification information
There are two categories of cookies:
- Technical cookies: necessary for the proper functioning of a website and for the user to browse it. Without them, users may not be able to view pages correctly or use certain services.
- Profiling cookies: used to create user profiles to send advertising messages according to the preferences displayed by the user while browsing.
Cookies, whether ‘technical’ or ‘profiling’, can also be classified as:
- “Session” cookies, which are deleted immediately after closing the browser
- “Permanent” cookies, which remain in the browser for a certain period of time. These cookies are used, for example, to recognize the device connected to a website, facilitating user authentication procedures
- “Owned” cookies, which are created and controlled directly by the operator of the website the user is browsing
- “Third-party” cookies, which are created and controlled by parties other than the operator of the website the user is browsing
Our Website uses “technical” cookies and in particular the following types of cookies:
Proprietary cookies, session cookies or permanent cookies, which are necessary for browsing the Website, for internal security and system management purposes
Third-party cookies, permanent cookies, are used by the Website to send statistical information to Google Analytics, through which the Company can carry out a statistical analysis of access/visits to the Website.
The cookies used serve exclusively statistical purposes and collect information in an aggregated form. Using two cookies, persistent cookies and session cookies (which expire when the browser is closed), Google Analytics also stores a log of the times when visits to the Website start and when they leave it.
You can prevent Google from collecting data through cookies and the subsequent processing of the data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
