WHAT ARE COOKIES
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser) where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting.
Cookies, usually present in users' browsers in very large numbers and sometimes even with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, etc.
In the following part of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term "cookies".
TYPES OF COOKIE
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service "(see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website; analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria in order to improve the service provided.
For the installation of these cookies it is not necessary to acquire a prior consent from users, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of EU Regulation 679/2016, which the site manager, if he uses only such devices, will be able to provide in the manner he deems most suitable.

If this cookie is deleted, the banner reappears at the first step on the site. The cookie is called useCookie and its duration is 180 days.

Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent.
They are referred to in art. 122 of the Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being been informed with the simplified procedures referred to in article 13, paragraph 3 "(article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
"Third party" cookies
By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site ("owners") and from sites managed by other organizations ("third parties"). An example are the "social plugins" of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various information and methods for managing cookies are shown below.
