  1. What cookies are and what they are for

The cookies are small text files that the websites visited by a user send directly to its terminal (usually, to the browser), where they are memorised to be transmitted to the same websites at the following visit of the same by the same user (the so called proprium first party cookies). During the web surfing of a website, a user may receive on its terminal also cookies of other websites or of other web servers (the so called third parties cookies); this happens because there may be elements on the visited website, such as images, maps, sounds, links to specific web pages of other domains that are on servers other than the server on which the requested page is placed.  In other words, such cookies are set up on a website other than the one that is currently visited.

The cookies may have a duration limited to a single session of navigation on the browser (the so called session cookies), and, in such event, they deactivate automatically once the browser is closed by the user; or may have a predetermined duration and, in such event, they will remain memorised and active on your hard disk until the expiry date, thus continuing collecting information during different sessions of navigation on the browser (the so called permanent cookies).

The cookies are used for several purposes. Certain cookies are necessary in order to allow You to surf the Website and benefit of its functionalities (the so called technical cookies). Other cookies are used in order to obtain statistical information, whether in aggregate or not, about the number of users accessing the Website and how the Website is used (the so called monitoring cookies or analytics). To the end, other cookies are used in order to track your consumer profile and make You viewing advertisings that may be of interest for You, since complying with your preferences and your consumer habits (the so called profiling cookies).

The technical cookies are useful in order to allow You to memorise your preferences (for example, the language or the Country) without setting up the same at the following visits (the so called functionalities cookies).  For such reason, the functionalities cookies are often lasting cookies, since they remain memorised on your computer also after the closure of the surfing browser, until the scheduled expiry date or until when you decide to eliminate the same.
