What is a Cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information downloaded to your computer or device when you visit a site. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit. The so-called “third party cookies” are set by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is because each site can have elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages in other domains, etc.) that reside on other servers


What do we use Cookies for?

Cookies are used for different purposes: electronic authentication procedures, session monitoring, storing information relating to specific configurations about users accessing the server, recording of user’s preference, etc.

Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into four categories:

  1. essential cookies (strictly necessary)
  2. performance cookies
  3. functionality cookies
  4. 4.  targeting cookies.

Essential cookies

They allow you to move around a website and use its features. Without these cookies, the required services cannot be provided. One example is storing actions (e.g. Text input) to return to previous pages within the same session.

Performance cookies

These cookies help us collect information about how you use our websites over time, the areas you visit and errors you may encounter. These cookies do not collect information that can lead to profiling of visitors. Any information obtained is aggregated (i.e. anonymous) and used only to improve the functioning of the site.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow a site to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a site may be able to provide you with local information by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. All of the information collected by these cookies can be anonymized and these cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting cookies

These cookies are used to deliver online advertisements on other websites that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see such advertisements as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a site and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often, they will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.

Our use of cookies

As for most websites, a visit to our site involves the use of cookies to improve the user experience. These cookies allow the site to remember the user data for the duration of the visit or future visits and allow the user to navigate efficiently between pages.

Cookies can be set on our website (first-party cookies) or on other sites that have content on our site (third-party cookies). For example, our web pages may contain “share” buttons that allow users to share content with friends via social networks; in this case, it is possible that these sites set a cookie when you are logged in to avail their services.

Our site does not handle the setting of cookies on these sites. Refer to third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them, taking into account that you can enable or disable the cookies functionality or any part thereof, or delete already defined cookies, by changing their settings from the Help menu of the Internet browser.

By doing so, you should know that all interactive features of the website would no longer be available.


We also use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google web analytics that sends cookies to your device in order to monitor, in detail, the visits to each site (for example, if the visits are direct or were referred by a search engine, their geographical location and many other useful information to analyse the potential of the website).

  •      All of the information generated by the cookie about your normal use of the site (navigation within the pages) do not include your IP address – that indicates your identity on the internet – and so it is made anonymous, that is not related to you. It is sent to Google and stored by Google c/o their servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties, if required by law or if third parties process this information on behalf of Google.


For further information on Google Analytics, please check Cookies and Analytics and the privacy policy for Google Analytics.

Users who do not want their data to be recorded by Google Analytics can install the browser add-on for Google Analytics Opt-out. This add-on sets the Analytics JavaScript code (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) that runs on websites so as not to send information to Google Analytics.

To disable the Web Analytics, please visit the Google Analytics Opt-out and install the add-in for your browser. For more information about installing or uninstalling the add-on, please see the specific support resources for your browser.

Updates to the browser or operating system may affect the operation of the add-on. For more information about managing add-ons for Chrome, click here.

Unless you are using Chrome, check directly with the browser manufacturer to determine if additional components are working properly on the browser version in use.




Block third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are generally not necessary to browse, so you can reject them by default, through special functions of your browser.


Enable “anonymous browsing” mode

Using this mode, you can browse without trace in the browser navigation data. The sites will not remember you, the pages you visit will not be stored in the web history and the new cookies will be deleted.

However, the anonymous browsing feature does not guarantee the anonymity on the Internet, since it is used only to avoid retention of navigation data in the browser, whereas your browsing data will continue to be available to the operators of Web sites and connectivity providers.

Clear your cookies

There are special functions to do it in all browsers. However, remember that every time you connect to the Internet new cookies are downloaded, so the delete operation should be performed periodically. If desired, some browsers offer automated systems for periodic deletion of cookies.
