INFORMATION NOTICE ON COOKIES

What cookies are

Cookies are small text strings that a given website, when visited by a user, sends to the computer of such user (usually to the browser). Cookies are normally used by the website manager to store useful information to improve navigation in the site or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during the navigation on the web. When the same site is visited again or any other site is visited, the user’s device verifies the presence of a recognised cookie in order to read the information contained in it.

During navigation on a website, a user may also receive on his/her computer cookies that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third-party cookies”), on which certain elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) that are on the site visited by such user. The number of cookies that can be found on a users’ browser is usually high and sometimes cookies may last a long time. Their purposes are diverse: execution of site authentications, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations concerning the users accessing the server, etc.
