What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that websites send to users' computer while being visited; there they are stored to be used upon subsequent visits. In turn, so-called "third party" cookies are set by a different website from the one being visited. Indeed, in every site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) located in different serves from those being visited. Cookies are used for different purposes: IT authentication protocols, session monitoring, information storage of specific configurations concerning users accessing the server, preference storage, etc.
Cookie settings on this website
Technical cookies are needed for navigation and provision of the service requested by users. They are not used for any other reasons and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without these cookies some operation may not occur or would definitely be more complex/less safe. Essential cookies cannot be disabled using the functions available on this website. More generally, cookies may be disengaged completely from the user's browser at any time.
Profiling cookies are used to track the user's navigation on the web and create profiles according to their taste, habits, choices, etc. These cookies allow to send on-line advertising material to the users' computer based on the preferences already expressed during navigation. This website does not use profiling cookies.
Third party cookies
Visiting a website can expose to cookies either from the visited site (“proprietary”), as well as sites managed by other organisations (“third parties”). A good example are "social plug ins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the above sites and integrated in the host page. The most common use of social plug ins is targeted at sharing contents on social networks. The presence of these plug ins implies the transmission of cookies from and towards the websites managed by said third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is subject to the regulatory notes which users are recommended to read. In order to ensure higher transparency and convenience, following are the web addresses of some regulatory notes and the relevant instructions for cookie use.
