Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by  the  individual  browser  on  the  specific  device  used  (computer,  tablet,  smartphone).  Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behaviour and use of services.

In the rest of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the word “cookie”.

Type ofcookie

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies, we can identify different categories:

Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the website to function properly and are used to manage login and access to the website’s restricted functions. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted).

Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyse traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to the website at different times. They also make it possible to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. These cookies can be disabled without any loss of functionality.

Third party cookies used by this website

By visiting a website you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from websites managed by other organisations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for example Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned websites and integrated into the page of the host website. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.

The presence of these plugins on the website involves the transmission of cookies to and from all websites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant privacy policies to which reference is made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, here below are the web addresses of the various privacy policies and methods of cookie management:

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available for subsequent visits by the user.

These are called persistent cookies and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Cookie management

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change the settings of your web browser to reject them. If you choose to refuse cookies, you will not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the website’s services. Disabling “third party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way.
