1.1. Information about cookies
Cookies are small text files that the website stores on users' computers. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track the exploration carried out on different websites that use the same cookie.
Cookies are classified according to the duration and the site that has set them.
We believe it is essential to provide users with information on the cookies that our website uses and the purposes for which they are used. The goal is threefold: to guarantee your privacy, to ensure ease of use and to optimize the development of our websites. The explanation below illustrates in more detail the cookies used on our Web sites and related purposes.
3. Cookies and related features
Depending on the individual objectives, different cookies are used.
The following is a list of the most common types of cookies and the purposes for which they are used.
3.1. Session cookies
Session cookies are stored temporarily in the memory of the computer while browsing a site, for example, to keep track of the chosen language. Session cookies remain stored on your computer for a short period of time. They are in fact deleted as soon as the user closes the web browser.
3.2. Permanent cookies or tracers
Persistent cookies save a file on your computer for a long time. This type of cookie has an expiration date. Persistent cookies allow websites to remember information and settings on subsequent visits by users, thus making browsing more practical and quick, since, for example, it is no longer necessary to log in.
On the expiration date, the cookie is automatically deleted when you first log on to the Web site that created it.
3.3. First-party cookies
These cookies are set by the websites themselves (with a domain identical to that indicated in the browser address bar) and can only be read by those sites. They are commonly used to store information such as preferences, to be used on subsequent visits to the site.
3.4. Third-party cookies
These cookies are set by domains other than those indicated in the browser's address bar, ie by organizations that do not correspond to website owners.
The cookies used, for example, to collect information for advertising and content customization, as well as to process Web statistics, may be "third-party cookies".
Third-party cookies allow us to obtain more complete surveys of users' browsing habits and are believed to be more sensitive from the point of view of integrity. For this reason, most Web browsers allow you to change the settings so that these cookies are not accepted.
