Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store on client’s browser information to be reused during the same visit to the website (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as, for example, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services.
In the following of this document we refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies”.
Types of cookies
That is, cookies that belong to the publisher’s website (who created them). Are set by the website visited by the user, whose address appears in the URL. The use of these cookies allows the website to operate efficiently and to track visitor behavior patterns.
These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website and are used, for example, to manage the login and access to reserved areas of the website. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (closed the browser are deleted).
Analysis and performance cookies.
These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the website anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A remarkable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The site may also include certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also in this case they are third-party cookies collected and managed to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze information on the behavior of use of the website (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for site operators regarding the activities on the website.

The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on his browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable the action of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:
Some of the pages that you visit can also collect information through ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘clear gifs’) that may be shared with third parties who directly assist the promotional activities and the development of websites.
Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in 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.
Browsing on the pages of the site, you can interact with sites managed by third parties that create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser.
Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of site features.
The disabling of “third-party” cookies does not affect the surfing in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies “owners” and those of “third parties”.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we inform that you may use “Your Online Choices”. Through this service it is possible to manage the tracking preferences of most advertising tools. The owner, therefore, advises users to use this resource, in addition to the information provided in this document. If you use different devices to view and access Internet websites (for example, computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.), you must ensure that each browser on each device is set to reflect your cookie preferences.
