Cookies are information stored by the browser when a website is visited with any suitable device (such as a PC, tablet or smartphone). Each cookie contains different data (e.g. the name of the server from which it originates, a numeric identifier, etc.), it can remain in the system for the duration of a session (until the browser is closed) or for long periods and may contain a unique identification code.
Cookies are used for different purposes depending on their type: some are strictly necessary for the correct functionality of a website (technical cookies), while others optimize its performances to offer a better user experience or allow the Data Controller to acquire statistics on the use of the site, such as analytics cookies or allow you to view personalized advertising, such as profiling cookies.
3. HOW DO WE INFORM THE INTERESTED?
The eventual provision of the user's consent is stored by the Data Controller through a technical cookie, lasting 12 months. The user is informed both through the brief information (banner displayed until consent is given or denied, as explained in the paragraph "How to disable cookies?") and through this extended information; in addition, the links to the privacy policies of third parties are indicated below, also for the purpose of disabling them (where directly available through them).
Analytical cookies (third party): they are used for aggregate analysis of visits to the website, through the use of a third party service.
Browser control: The commonly used browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) accept cookies by default, but this setting can be changed by the user at any time. This applies to both PCs and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones: it is a function generally and widely supported.
Therefore, cookies can easily be disabled by accessing the options or preferences of the browser used and generally only third-party cookies can be blocked; in general, these options will have effect only for that browser and on that device, unless there are no active options for unifying preferences on different devices.Specific instructions can be found on the browser's options or help page. Disabling technical cookies, however, can affect the full and / or correct functioning of several sites, including this site.
Normally, the browsers used today:
- offer the "Do not track" option, which is supported by some websites (but not all). In this way, some websites may no longer collect certain browsing data;
- offer the option of anonymous or incognito browsing: in this way no data will be collected in the browser and browsing history will not be saved, but browsing data will still be acquired by the operator of the visited website;
- allow you to delete cookies stored in whole or in part, but when you visit a website again, they are usually installed where this possibility is not blocked.
Below you can find the links to the support pages of the most popular browsers (with instructions on disabling cookies on these browsers):
Third-party cookies: third-party cookies can be disabled both in the manner described above and by referring to each third party (following the links indicated in the previous paragraph).
