1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored before being transmitted back to the same sites on their next visit. Cookies-called "third parties" are, instead, set by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is because on each site may be present elements (images, maps, sounds, specific to web pages in other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than the visited site.

2. What are cookies for?

Cookies are used for different purposes: running computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information about specific configurations about users accessing the server, storing preferences, etc.

3. Third-party Cookies

Visiting a web site the user can receive cookies either from the visited site ("Owner"), or from sites operated by other parties ( "Third Party"). An example is the presence of "social plugin" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn. These applications are generated by the above sites and directly integrated into the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at the sharing of content on social networks (eg. "Share", "Likes", etc.).

4. "Technical" cookies

They are cookies that are used to allow browsing or to provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed by the owner of the website.

Without the use of these cookies, some operations may not be completed or would be more complex and / or less secure, such as home banking activities (extract display account, transfer money, pay bills, etc.), For such as cookies, that allow you to make and keep the user identification in the session, they are indispensable.

5. The analytics cookies are "technical" cookie?

No. The Guarantor (cfr.provision of 8th May 2014) specified that may be treated as technical cookies only if used for the purpose of site optimization directly from the owner of the site itself, which may collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the site. Under these conditions, for the analytics cookie the same rules apply, for disclosures and consent, provided for technical cookies.

6. "Profiling" cookie

They are cookies used to track user web browsing and create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc.. By mean of these cookies advertising messages can be transmitted to the user's terminal in line with the preferences already expressed by the same user in the online navigation. This site does NOT use profiling cookies.

7. Cookie Duration

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until you close the browser or execution of any logout command. Other cookies "survive" after the browser is closed, and are also available for future visits. These are called persistent cookies, and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases, it fixed a deadline, in other cases the duration is indefinite.

8. Manage Cookies

The user can decide whether to accept cookies using your browser settings. Warning: the total or partial disabling of the technical cookies could affect proper use of the site.

Disabling the "third party" cookies does not prejudge in any way the browsing. The setting can be specifically defined for different websites and web applications. Browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies "owners" and those of "third parties". For example, in Firefox via the Tools-> Options> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can specify whether or not to accept various types of cookies and remove them.
