The information collected concerns data that may allow the identification of users/visitors through association and processing with data held by third parties (such as, for example, IP addresses and domain names of computers used by people who connect to the website). These data are used for statistical purposes only.
What is a cookie - A cookie is a small text file, usually consisting of letters and numbers, downloaded onto your device when you access the website. Cookies are then sent to the original site at each subsequent visit.
This information may relate to you, your preferences or the device you use to access the site (computer, tablet or mobile phone) and is primarily used to tailor the functioning of the site to your expectations or to collect data for statistical purposes.
Different types of cookies - Cookies are classified differently according to the aspect considered. With regard to the duration of the cookies, a distinction is made between session and persistent cookies.
Session cookies - Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (i.e., they last from when you open the browser window until you exit the browser). They allow websites to track your actions during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what you have put in your shopping cart while browsing a site. They can also be used for security when you access internet banking services or to facilitate the use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session.
The use of session cookies (which, in any case, are not permanently stored on your computer and are automatically deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the purpose of transmitting data (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to enable secure and efficient browsing. The session cookies used in this site do not use other information technology that could compromise the privacy of the users browsing the web.
Persistent cookies - These cookies can be stored longer than a session. They are stored on your device between different browser sessions and enable your actions in a website to be remembered. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering your preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases through different websites).
“First-party” and “third-party” cookies - With reference to the party setting the cookie, a distinction is made between first-party and third-party cookies. Whether a cookie is a “first-party” or “third-party” cookie is strictly linked to the website or domain that uses that cookie. “First-party” cookies are cookies set by the website visited by you, in other words the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, this means the cookies set by this website of the Controller. “Third-party” cookies are cookies set by a different domain from the one visited by you: i.e., cookies set by websites different from the website of this Controller. If you visit a website (such as this one) and a third-party company sets a cookie through this website, that cookie is a “third-party” cookie.
Technical cookies - Technical cookies are necessary for communication on the electronic network and are usually installed directly by the Controller or operator of the website. They are used for the proper functioning of the website or to improve the service provided to you. The installation of these cookies does not require your prior consent, but you must be informed of their presence.
Profiling cookies - Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by you during your web browsing. For profiling cookies, you must be informed of their presence and consent to their use.
