This website makes use of cookies or markers, which technically are information packages sent by a web server (in this case, by this website) to the Internet browser of the visitor/user, which the latter automatically stores on the personal computer or mobile device and that are automatically sent again to the server at every subsequent access to the website. To make full use of this website, therefore, we suggest configuring the browser so that it accepts the reception of cookies.

We inform you that, by default, almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. Visitors/users can however change the default configuration. As specified above, disabling or deleting cookies might however prevent the optimal use of some website areas or compromise the use of the services subject to authentication.

If users/visitors wish to decide from time to time whether to accept cookies or not, they can also configure their browser so that it generates a warning every time a cookie is saved.

The cookies used are both of the persistent type (i.e. they remain stored until their expiration date on the hard disk of the personal computer/mobile device of the user/visitor) and of the session type (i.e. they are not persistently stored on the computer of the user/visitor and disappear when the browser is closed).

Cookies are used to facilitate browsing within the website and for proper use of the same, to facilitate the access to the services requiring authentication (so that user do not have to enter their authentication credentials every time they access the services), for statistical purposes, to know which website area are visited and also, in some cases, for optimal management of advertising pages and spaces, i.e. to deliver contents and advertisements aligned with the choices performed by users.

This website may use anonymous third-party cookies to manage the delivery of advertising messages through a dynamic and advanced procedure. The most common browsers include the possibility of exclusively blocking third-party cookies, accepting only the website-related ones. Some companies generating cookies on third-party sites, moreover, offer the possibility of deactivating/disabling their own cookies only through simple and prompt procedures, even when the cookies are anonymous, i.e. do not entail the recording of personal identification data (such as the IP address, by way of example).
