1. What cookies are and how they are used
Cookies are small text files sent by a server to a web user when the latter accesses a page on a website. They are generally used to remember preferences, data and information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or afterwards (persistent cookies).
Cookies make it easier to navigate the site, allow the memorisation of pages visited and other specific information, such as pages consulted most frequently, connection errors, etc.
Cookies are stored, according to the user's preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet or smartphone).
Often browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) are set to automatically accept cookies. However, users can change their default setting, choosing to disable or delete cookies. However, this may prevent optimal use of certain areas of the website.
During navigation, moreover, users may also receive cookies from different sites (called "third-party" cookies) on their terminal, set directly by website providers and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them.
2. Types of Cookie
Cookies are distinguished by their characteristics and use:
a) Technical cookies: these are necessary for navigation of a website and the use of its features (e.g. access to reserved areas and correct display); for this reason, disabling them does not allow such activities.
Technical cookies are not used for any other purposes and are divided into:
• navigation or session cookies: these guarantee normal navigation and use of the website;
• functionality cookies: these allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language).
b) Performance cookies: these collect information anonymously about how users use the website, for example which pages they visit most often and any error messages they may receive during their visit. These cookies do not collect identifying information of users.
c) Profiling cookies: these are designed to create user-related profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web.
These cookies are used to track users' navigation online and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc. These cookies allow us to obtain information about your preferences and browsing habits on our websites (for example, the products and/or services most viewed) and to recognise users who return to visit our websites and/or a website that is part of the network of one of our promotional partners. This information is used to send personalised marketing communications.
