Information on cookies
Cookies are small text files that the website stores on users’ computers. The information contained in the cookies can also be used to keep track of the browsing carried out on different websites that use the same cookie.
Cookies are classified according to their duration and the site that set them.
We believe it is essential to provide users with information about the cookies our website uses and the purposes for which they are used. The goal is threefold: to ensure your privacy, ensure ease of use and optimize the development of our websites. The explanation below illustrates in more detail the cookies used on our websites and their purposes.
Cookies and related functionality
Depending on the individual objectives, different cookies are used.
Below is a list of the most common types of cookies and the purposes for which they are used.
Session cookies are temporarily stored in the computer’s memory while browsing a site, for example, to keep track of the chosen language. Session cookies remain stored on your computer for a short period of time. They are in fact deleted as soon as the user closes the web browser.
Permanent or tracking cookies
Persistent cookies save a file on your computer for a long period of time. This type of cookie has an expiration date. Permanent cookies allow websites to remember information and settings on subsequent visits by users, thus making browsing more practical and quick, since, for example, it is no longer necessary to log in.
On the expiration date, the cookie is automatically deleted when you first log into the website that created it.
First party cookies
These cookies are set by the websites themselves (with the same domain as that indicated in the address bar of the browser) and can only be read by those sites. They are commonly used to store information such as preferences, to be used on subsequent visits to the site.
Third party cookies
These cookies are set by domains other than the one indicated in the browser address bar, or by organizations that do not correspond to the owners of the websites.
The cookies used, for example, to collect information for advertising and content personalization purposes, as well as to process Web statistics, may be “third-party cookies”.
Third-party cookies allow you to obtain more complete surveys of users’ browsing habits and are believed to be more sensitive from the point of view of integrity. For this reason, most web browsers allow you to change settings so that these cookies are not accepted.
Flash cookies (Local Shared Objects) are data that can be stored on your computer by websites that use Adobe Flash.
These cookies offer a new method to track movements and store a much higher amount of information about the user than normal cookies. One of the main disadvantages of Flash cookies is the inability to locate them within the browser. In fact, they are not present in the list that is displayed when you consult the cookies currently present in the web browser. Normal HTTP cookies are unable to store more than 4 Kilobytes of data, while Flash cookies can save up to 100 Kilobytes.
The technological design of Flash cookies is similar to that of cookies. Almost all web browsers have a Flash player which is used to view Flash presentations. A famous example of Flash presentations is the YouTube video player. (Flash cookies are not only associated with YouTube, but are valid for all websites that use Flash cookies).
There is no time limit for Flash cookies. They therefore remain archived until they are deleted.
How to disable Flash cookies
Flash cookies cannot be blocked or managed in the browser, since they are stored in another location, that is, in the General storage settings panel in the online resource Manage settings on the Adobe site.
Settings Manager is accessed from the Adobe website, but runs locally on your computer. In Website storage settings, all Flash cookies currently stored on your computer are displayed. These cookies can be deleted individually from individual sites or all together. You can also increase or decrease the size in Kilobytes of all information stored on your computer.
To avoid the storage of Flash cookies, simply access the General storage settings and disable the “Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer” option.
To disable Flash cookies site by site, you need to access the settings manager.
If Flash cookies are deactivated, we can no longer guarantee the correct execution of all functions of our website.

Cookies can be limited or blocked through browser settings
If you prefer that websites do not store any cookies on your computer, set your browser to receive a notification before each cookie is stored. Alternatively, you can set your browser to reject all cookies or only third-party cookies. You can also delete all cookies already present in the system. It is important to emphasize that the settings must be changed separately in each browser and computer used.
If you set the blocking of the storage of cookies, we can no longer guarantee the correct functioning of the website. Some functions of the website may not be available and it may no longer be possible to view certain websites. Furthermore, blocking cookies does not eliminate the display of advertisements.

In each browser the settings are changed following a different procedure. If necessary, use your browser’s Help function to define the correct settings.
