What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user's terminal equipment by visited websites; they are stored in the user's terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites.

  • Analytical Cookies allow to recognize and collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website. Analytical cookies are assimilated to technical cookies and are used directly by the website first party to improve their usability.
  • Profiling Cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and they are used to send advertising messages to the user’s device, in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.
