The cookies on this site can be divided into different categories according to their characteristics and use:

– Technical cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website; analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of criteria selected in order to improve the service provided to the same. Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code remains in place, which the site operator, if it only uses such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate.

– Profiling cookies.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. Because of the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that users must be adequately informed of their use and thus express their valid consent. They are referred to in Article 122 of the Code where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contracting party or user has expressed his or her consent after having been informed in the simplified manner set out in Article 13(3)” (Article 122(1) of the Code). This website does not use profiling cookies.

Google Analytics
The site also includes components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). These cookies are used for the sole purpose of monitoring and improving the performance of the site. For further information, please refer to the link below:

Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until you close your browser or issue any logout command. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is fixed by the server when they are created. In some cases an expiry date is set, in others the duration is unlimited.

Managing cookies
Users can decide whether or not to accept cookies by using their browser settings.

Please note that disabling all or part of technical cookies may compromise the optimal use of the site.

Disabling “third-party” cookies does not affect navigability in any way.

The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, browsers allow you to define different settings for ‘proprietary’ and ‘third-party’ cookies. As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed to their removal. On the Internet it is easy to find documentation on how to set the rules for managing cookies for your browser, by way of example here are some addresses for the main browsers:

Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/it…
