A cookie is a small text file that a Site, when you visit it, sends to your device (computer, mobile device such as smartphone or tablet), where it is stored before being sent back to that site during the subsequent visit.
2. TYPES OF COOKIES
There are different types of cookies based, first of all, on to who installs them on the user's terminal. Cookies can, in fact, be installed by the same publisher of the Site that the user is visiting (so-called "first-party cookies") or by a third party, which installs cookies through the first Site (so-called "third-party cookies").
Cookies are also distinguished according to their purpose. In particular:
- Technical/functionality cookies. They can be either session cookies (e.g. cookies that are automatically deleted when a user closes the browser) or persistent cookies that are used to remember information used between two separate logins. These cookies are used solely to allow the user to navigate or to provide a service requested by the user. They remember the information that the user provides while browsing the pages of the Site. They include, for example, cookies that allow a user to make a purchase, that allow authentication to restricted areas or that store the language and nationality selected by the user when visiting the Site.
- Analytical/performance/statistical cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how they move around our Site while using it. This helps us to improve the operation of our Site, for example, by ensuring that users easily find what they are looking for.
- Profiling and marketing cookies. They can be either from us or third parties and are used to analyse the interests and browsing habits of individual users, in order to customize their browsing and deliver, for example, targeted contents, including advertisings.
Only profiling cookies and analytical cookies of third parties require the user's prior consent to their use.
The Site uses first-party technical cookies, for which no user's consent is required, as well as third-party analytical and profiling cookies that, instead, require consent to their use.
