Cookies are small text files that sites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to the same sites on the next visit. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are set by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is because on each site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the site visited.
Types of cookies
- Technical cookies. Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service" (cf. Art. 122, para. 1 of the Code). They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be subdivided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website; analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website operator for
collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria in order to improve the service rendered to the same. Users' prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to Article 13 of the Code remains in place, which the site operator, if it only uses such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate.
- Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of users and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express his valid consent. They are referred to in Article 122 of the Code where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user or access to information already stored shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has expressed consent after having been informed in the simplified manner set out in Article 13(3)" (Article 122(1) of the Code). This site does not use profiling cookies.

Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or any logout command is executed. Other cookies "survive" when the browser is closed and are available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is fixed by the server when they are created. In some cases an expiry date is set, in others the duration is unlimited.
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies by using your browser settings. Please note that the total or partial disabling of technical cookies may affect the optimal use of the site.
Disabling 'third-party' cookies does not affect navigability in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. Furthermore, browsers allow different settings to be defined for 'proprietary' and 'third-party' cookies. As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, it is possible to access a control panel where it is possible to define whether or not to accept different types of cookies and to proceed to their removal. Documentation on how to set cookie management rules for one's own browser is readily available on the Internet; by way of example, here are some addresses for the main browsers:
