What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a small text file generated by some websites on the user’s computer when he/she accesses a specific website, with the purpose of storing and transferring information. The cookies are sent by a web server (which is the computer on which the website visited is being run) to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and saved on his/her computer; they are therefore sent back to the website at next visits. Usually they are saved directly on the browser used for browsing.

The same website that transferred them can subsequently read and save the cookies to obtain information of different types or technical type, information on the operation and browsing of the website (to remember actions, preferences, and displaying settings so that they should not be entered again for new sessions), for aggregated statics, and could also use first party or third party commercial type profiling cookies. From his/her browser the user can set his/her privacy preferences at anytime choosing not to save the cookies, delete them after every visit, or when the browser will be closed, or accept exclusively the cookies from this website and not the third party ones.

How to disable and manage cookies in the main browsers:

Each user can disable the cookies through the software used to access Internet (so called “browser”). Therefore, you should check your browser configuration with reference to the cookies, and set them according to your preferences, keeping into account that to be able to use some services it could be necessary to enable your browser to accept cookies (in this case you will be duly informed).
