Cookies are short pieces of text (letters and /or numbers) that allow the web server to store information about the customer (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even at a distance of days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by individual browser use on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies can be used to collect information on user behavior and use of services.
In the rest of this document we will refer to cookies and similar technologies by simply using the word "cookie".
Types of Cookies
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are indispensable for the proper functioning of our site and are used to manage login and access to the site's reserved functions, in general to speed up, improve or customize the level of service to users. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted), or longer, aimed at recognizing the visitor's computer. Their deactivation can compromise the use of the accessible services of login, while the public part of the site normally remains usable.
Analysis and booking cookies. They are cookies used to collect and analyze traffic and use of the site 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 to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
Profiling Cookie. 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 shown by the user in the context of web browsing.
Third party Cookies
By visiting a website you may receive cookies both from the site visited ("owner") and from websites managed by other organizations ("third parties"). An example is the presence of "social plugins" (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites operated by third parties. The management of the information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made.
The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings of their browser.
Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the functionalities of the site reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
Disabling "third party" cookies does not affect browsing in any way. The setting can be defined specifically for the different sites and web applications. Furthermore, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for "proprietary" and "third-party" cookies.
As an example, with Google Chrome, click the wrench in the upper right corner and select "Settings". At this point, select "Show advanced settings" ("Under the hood") and change the Privacy settings.
