Use of Cookies

This Website uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure its correct functioning and improve users’ browsing experience. This page provides information about the use of cookies and similar technologies on this Website, and about how users can manage cookies.

There are various kinds of cookies, some to help perform certain functions and some to help navigate a website more efficiently.

What are cookies in computers?

Cookies are small text files that visited websites send to the user or subscriber’s device (computer, tablet, smartphone, notebook), where they are memorized and then retrieved by those websites on the subsequent visits. They are used to perform computer authentications, monitor sessions and memorize information on websites (without the use of “technical” cookies some operations would be very complex or impossible). Cookies can also be used to monitor browsing preferences and gather data on tastes, habits, and personal choices, enabling the ability to draw up detailed consumer profiles of users.
