A. What are cookies and how do they work
Cookies are small text files placed on the User’s devices by the websites visited. The information is usually saved in the folders of the browser where they are stored and then sent back to the same website on the User’s next visit.
Cookies enable the Company’s server to receive information that is reread and updated each time the user returns to the Company’s website.
Cookies contain at least the following information:
B. What are cookies for

Cookies make it easier to consult the website and improve navigation within the site. Cookies also provide the manager of the website with anonymous information on the navigation of users, also to obtain statistical data on site usage.

C. Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided into the following categories: Technical Cookies and Profiling Cookies.
C.1 Technical Cookies
Technical cookies are essential for the correct functioning of the website, however, the user may choose not to allow the use of these cookies by changing the browser settings, bearing in mind that disabling these cookies may prevent access to certain features of the site.
Technical cookies can be divided into:
These cookies are necessary to navigate within the site using all its features (e.g. maintaining the session and access to reserved areas) and do not collect information to be used for commercial purposes. Without these cookies it would not be possible to provide the requested services.
They allow the user to navigate based on a series of selected criteria (e.g. language of the site) and thus facilitate navigation. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous.
These can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site. They are used to optimise the management of the website itself. The information collected by these cookies does not allow identifying the user.
The installation of technical cookies does not require the prior consent of users, while the obligation to provide the policy still stands.
The acquisition and processing of data deriving from the use of technical cookies is mandatory for consultation of the site. In the event of opposition by the user, the complete and correct viewing of the site will not be possible.
C.2 Profiling Cookies
These cookies allow acquiring information on the user’s preferences, which are used to send advertising messages consistent with the choices and preferences made by the user during navigation. Profiling cookies cannot be installed on the devices of users, unless they have been properly informed and have given their consent beforehand.
