Information on Cookies
What are cookies?
A “cookie” is a text file saved on the users’ computer when they access a website with the purpose of providing information every time said users return to the same site. It is a sort of reminder of the visited internet page. The web server uses the cookie to send information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) stored on the computer of the latter, and will be re-read and updated each time the user returns to the site. In this way the website can automatically adapt to the user. During navigation, users may also receive on their terminal cookies from different sites (“third party” cookies), set directly by the operators of said websites and used for the purposes and according to the procedures defined by them.
Depending on their duration, they can be classified as session cookies (i.e. temporary ones that are automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) or persistent cookies (i.e. remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or cancellation by the user).
Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Certain cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies, so-called technical, are often useful to allow website browsing and the use of all website features. The use of technical cookies do not require the user’s consent.
Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These cookies collect information on the website usage of users, allowing to improve its operation. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow us to check the recurrent use patterns of a website, and help us to understand every difficulty that the user encounters when using the website.
Other cookies that can be used instead to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and web browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising for targeted and personalised services. In this case, we refer to profiling cookies. Before using these cookies, users must grant their free and informed consent pursuant to art. 7 of the 2016/679 EU Regulation.
It can also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains, which reside on servers other than on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by managers of websites or servers other than this website. In these cases, we refer to so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. Before using these cookies, users must grant their free and informed consent.
