What a cookie is
As shown by the Privacy Guarantee in the specific FAQ page, “…cookies are small text files which the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are saved, to then be retransmitted to the same site the next time the same user visits it. When navigating on a site the user may receive cookies from different sites or web servers on his terminal (“third party” cookies): this happens because on the visited web site there may be elements such as, for example, pictures, maps, sounds or specific links to web pages of other domains which reside on servers different from the one where the requested page is found. In other words, they are those cookies which are set by a different web site from the one which is being visited”.
Types of cookie
Indispensable cookies These cookies are essential to allow you to navigate the whole site and use its features to the full, for example accessing the various site protected areas. Without these cookies some necessary services, such as filling in a form to send a message, could not be used. By using our site the user accepts that these cookies can be installed on his device.
Performance cookies These cookies collect information on how users use a web site, e.g. which are the most visited pages and if error messages are received from web pages. These cookies do not collect information which identifies a visitor: all the information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous. They are only used to improve the working of a web site. By using our site the user accepts that these cookies can be installed on his device.
Functionality cookies These cookies allow the site to remember the choices made by the user (such as the name, language or region he comes from) and supply advanced customised functions; they can also be used to remember the modifications made to the dimensions of the text, font and other parts of web pages which can be customised. They can also be used to supply specific requested services, such as looking at a video or commenting on an article on a blog. The information collected by this type of cookie can be made anonymous and they cannot monitor navigation activity on other web sites. By using our site the user accepts that these cookies can be installed on his device.
Profiling cookies These are aimed at creating user profiles and are used to send publicity messages in line with the preferences manifested by the user when navigating on line. Because of the particular invasivity of these devices in the user’s private life, European and Italian standards specify that the user must be suitably informed about the use of these cookies and agree to them. This site does not use this type of cookie.
Third-party cookies On visiting a web site you may receive cookies both from the site visited (“proprietary”) and from sites managed by other organisations (“third party”). A notable example is represented by “social plug-ins” for Facebook, Twitter and Google+: these are parts of the visited page generated directly by the above sites and integrated in the host site page. The most common use of social plug-ins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. These plug-ins involve the transmission of cookies from and to sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by informative notes which should be referred to. To guarantee greater transparency and convenience, below we give the web addresses of the various informative notes and procedures for managing the cookies connected with the social networks connected to this portal:
Alter your web browser settings to limit, block or cancel cookies. The procedure varies slightly depending on the type of browser used. For detailed instructions click on the link for the browser used:
