Cookies are small text files that are sent from the website visited by the user on the user's device (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that they can recognize that device the next time they visit. On each subsequent visit, in fact, cookies are sent back from the user's device to the site. Each cookie generally contains: the name of the server from which the cookie was sent; expiration and a value, usually a unique number randomly generated by the computer. The website server that transfers the cookie uses this number to recognize the User when he returns to visit a site or navigates from one page to another. Cookies can be installed not only by the same site manager visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that installs cookies through the first site (third-party cookies) and is able to recognize them.

Under this measure, it wishes to inform users that its company website uses "technical" cookies: these are cookies that serve to navigate or provide a service requested by the user; are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without the use of such cookies, some operations could not be accomplished or would be more complex and/or less secure.  Below is a list of the technical cookies currently used by the website, with the indication of their name, the function performed by each of them and their duration: FINAL NAME TYPE/DURATION ORIGINE PHPSESSID Technical Cookie (navigation) session First part Also, inform the Users, that the website also uses cookies c.d. "analytics"; these cookies are likened to technical cookies as they are used for the purpose of optimizing the site directly from the owner of the site itself, which will be able to collect information in aggregate about the number of users and how they visit the site. In particular, users are informed that in relation to the third-party "analytics" cookies used by the site, tools have been adopted that reduce the identifying power of cookies (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP address) and the third party does not cross the collected information with others it already has).

"Profiling". In general, beyond the type of cookies used by this website, we wish to inform you that, in addition to the protections provided by current legislation, any options are available for navigating without cookies, such as by way of example:

 

  • Lock third-party cookies: third-party cookies are generally not essential for browsing, so you can reject them by default, through specific functions of your browser. Page 2 of 3 • Activate the Do Not Track option: the Do Not Track option is present in most of the latest generation browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option, when activated, should automatically stop collecting some of your browsing data. As said, however, not all websites are set up to respect this option (discretionary). Activate the “anonymous browsing” mode: using this function you can navigate without leaving a trace in the browser of the browsing data. The sites will not remember you, the pages you visit will not be stored in the history and the new cookies will be deleted. The anonymous browsing function does not guarantee anonymity on the Internet, however, because it only serves to not keep browsing data in the browser, while instead your browsing data will continue to be available to website operators and connectivity providers.  Delete cookies directly: there are special functions to do it in all browsers. Remember, however, that every time you connect to the Internet, new cookies are downloaded, so the deletion operation should be performed periodically. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for periodic deletion of cookies.
