Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser) to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even at a distance of days (persistent cookies).

Types of cookies
- Analysis and performance cookies: these are cookies used to collect and analyze traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
- Profiling cookies: these are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) the user's preferences and improve their browsing experience.
- Third-party cookies: by visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the visited site (`` owners '') and from sites managed by other organizations (`` third parties ''). A notable example is represented by the presence of social plugins for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the host site page. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by third parties is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made.
To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various information and methods for managing cookies are shown below.
