Cookies are small text files sent to your computer terminal (desktop, tablet, smartphone, notebook, etc.) by the websites you visit, where they are stored and then sent back to those same websites at your subsequent visit. Cookies are used to carry out IT authentication procedures, monitor sessions and record website information (if we didn’t use ‘essential’ cookies, some operations would be very complicated or impossible to carry out). While browsing a website, you may also receive cookies sent from other websites or servers (known as ‘third-party cookies’) where certain features (such as images, maps, sounds, particular links to other domains) are on the website you are visiting.
Our website uses ESSENTIAL cookies. These cookies make it easier to use the website and access information, simplifying the connection and transmission of data between the website and the user.
More specifically, we use:
• persistent cookies and session cookies: these allow you to browse and use a website normally, for example, by saving information regarding your visit to a website.
We use Google Analytics (GA) cookies to collect information about how people use our website. These cookies, which can be handled together with essential cookies, are treated as a single body of information to monitor which parts of the website are visited most, to improve website content, make it easier for visitors to use the website and check that the website is working properly. The GA cookies used are set by a website other than the one you are visiting. This is because there can be features on each website (images, maps, sounds, particular links to web pages from other domains, etc.) that are found on a different server from the one used by the website being visited. We allow third parties to use GA cookies on our website in order to save information (stored anonymously) that helps prepare reports concerning website navigation.
