WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings that a website can send, while browsing, to your device (be it a pc, notebook, smartphone, tablet; they are usually stored directly on the browser used for browsing). The same website that transmitted them, then can read and record cookies that are on the same device to obtain various kinds of information. Which ones? For each type of cookie there is a well-defined role.
HOW MANY TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are two basic macro-categories with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies are generally necessary for the website to function properly and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to view pages properly or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep you logged in throughout your visit to a website, or to store language settings, display settings, and so on. Technical cookies can be further distinguished into:
Browsing cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies only where used directly by the site operator 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 set of selected criteria (e.g., language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
Profiling cookies are more sophisticated! These cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing.
Cookies can, again, be classified as:
Session cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browsing browser is closed;
Persistent cookies, which, unlike session cookies, remain within the browser for a specified period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device connecting to the site by facilitating authentication operations for the user.
First-party cookies (first-part cookies) i.e., cookies generated and managed directly by the entity operating the website on which the user is browsing.
third-party cookies (third-part cookies), which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the website owner and the third party).

The computer systems and software procedures responsible for the operation of this site acquire, in normal operation, some navigation data that are transmitted implicitly in the use of Internet communication protocols. These are data related to telematic traffic that by their nature cannot be immediately associated with identified data subjects, but through processing or association with data held by third parties they could allow the identification of users/visitors of the site (such as, for example, IP addresses, type of browser and operating system used by the user, time of request for access to web pages). This data is used only for anonymous statistical information about visits to the site or to verify the proper functioning of the site. These data are kept by the person in charge of the website for the period of time strictly necessary and in any case in accordance with the relevant regulations.
