Information about cookies


Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send to the terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user. When you are browsing a website, the userís terminal can receive also cookies of other websites and different web servers (the so called third-party cookies). This happens because on the website you are browsing, there may be other elements as for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers different from the one where you find the page you searched for. In other words, these are the cookies that are set by a different website than the one you are currently visiting.

Cookies are divided into two categories, technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical Cookies:
These cookies are used only for electronic filing (site navigation) and they ensure the normal browsing and use of the web service such as enabling authentication or the purchase of goods. These cookies enable features such as first- party cookies (personalized navigation for example based on the user's language) and analytic cookies (used directly by the site operator to collect information on the number of users and how they visited that site).

Profiling Cookies:
Profiling cookies are used to collect information and send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the web.

Type of cookie used uses only technical cookies within its websites.

Duration of the cookie
Cookies used by the end when the user logs out or after a period of inactivity set by the server.

Disabling technical cookies compromises the use of the sites, not those of the public site.
