Cookies can be of various types, depending on the type of data they store and how long they remain stored on the user’s device.
Session cookies, or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have longer deadlines (from a few minutes to full months) depending on the functions they perform. It is precisely these functions that distinguish cookies in two categories: technical and non-technical (or profiling).
Technical cookies manage the data necessary for the provision of pages and facilitate navigation, allowing, for example, not having to re-enter user and password to access particular services, to remember the last page visited or to what extent you have seen a video, to recognize the type of device in use and to adapt the size of the images accordingly. Technical cookies also allow aggregate statistical analysis on the most visited pages and on users’ preferences, but only anonymously, and are not used to analyze the behavior or preferences of individual users.
Profiling cookies, instead, are used to analyze the interests and browsing habits of individual users, to customize navigation and provide, for example, content, including advertising, targeted to particular interests.
Cookies can be supplied directly by the operator of the site on which you are browsing (first-party cookies) or, if the site relies on external services for special functions, by third parties (third-party cookies).
The Site uses on its pages both technical and non-technical cookies, including third parties, in order to improve experience on your site, adapting it, for example, depending on your browser and device, selecting the type of content displayed, or displaying advertisements of potential interest to the individual user. The navigation on the pages of the Site provides for the use of technical cookies and not (the latter also called “profiling”), first and third party, necessary for the provision of the service, used for statistical purposes, navigation analysis and for the provision of personalized commercial services and communications.
