What are cookies

Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused during the course of the visit to the site (session cookies) or later, including for long periods (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smart phone). Similar technologies can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services.

This document refers to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookie.”


What are the main types of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies they are divided into different categories:

Strictly necessary cookies or technical cookies. These cookies are essential for proper site functioning. They are used to manage logins and access to reserved sections of the site, generally to speed up, improve or customize the level of service offered to users. The cookies’ duration is either strictly limited to the work session (closing the browser deletes them) or continues after to recognize the visitor’s computer. Their deactivation may compromise the use of services accessible by login, while the public part of the site can still be used normally.

Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze site traffic and use anonymously and in aggregate form. They are either first- or third-party cookies and, without identifying the user, can be used to determine whether the same user has returned to connect at different times. They also allow the system to be monitored, and its performance and usability improved. These cookies can be deactivated without any loss of functionality.

Profiling cookies. These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience, in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the Internet. Because certain devices can be particularly invasive into users’ private sphere, European and Italian legislation require that users be adequately informed about their use and express their valid consent.

Third-party cookies. Visiting a website users can receive cookies either from the visited site (owner or publisher), or from sites managed by other organizations (third parties) through the first site. An example is the presence of “social plug-ins” (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plug-ins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by third parties is governed by the related information below.


How to manage third-party cookies

To ensure greater transparency and convenience, for each third-party site installable through this site, the following are provided: description and web address of the information, methods for managing cookies, options to deny consent for the installation of cookies (where available).


Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web traffic analysis service provided by Google used to monitor and improve host site performance (performance cookies). Google Analytics can collect and analyze information on usage behavior in anonymous form. This information is then processed for the purpose of preparing reports on the websites themselves. This site, through anonymization of the user’s IP address, does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google Analytics tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google, nor does it attempt to connect an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may communicate this information to third parties where required by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

For more information, visit:

The user can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing an opt-out browser add-on provided by Google. To disable Google Analytics, visit:


For all third-party cookies

In the event that it is particularly difficult to identify all third parties, especially for profiling preferences, the following links are provided:


How to disable cookies from your browser

Users can also decide whether or not to accept cookies using the browser settings.

Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise use of site features reserved for registered users. However, the public content can still be accessed with completely disabled cookies.

Disabling third-party cookies does not affect site navigability in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, browsers will ideally allow different settings for both proprietary and third-party cookies.

For example, in Mozilla Firefox, the menu Tools->Options->Privacy provides access to a control panel where the user can decide whether or not to accept the various types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
