Cookies are categorised according to their characteristics and use, i.e.:
- Technical cookies: these are cookies required for browsing or to supply a service requested by the user. They are not used for any other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner of the website. Without these cookies, certain operations cannot be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, so these cookies are strictly necessary. They may be divided into browsing cookies or session cookies, which guarantee normal browsing and use of the website.
- Analytics cookies: these are similar to technical cookies where used directly by the website owner to collect information, in aggregate form and therefore anonymous, on the number of users and on how they visit the website.
- Profiling cookies: these cookies are used to track the user’s Internet browsing and to create profiles on their tastes, habits and choices. These cookies serve to send advertising messages to the user’s terminal which correspond with preferences already shown by that user when browsing on line. This website does not use profiling cookies.
- Third party cookies: these are cookies which are not received from the website visited, and therefore not from the website owner, but from websites managed by other organisations, the so-called third parties. An example of this type of cookies are the _social plugin_s used for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. They are parts of the website visited, generated directly by said websites and integrated into the page of the host website.
