Why an information on cookies?
All Italian sites are obliged by law to inform users about cookies and to request authorization for their use.
What are cookies?
Cookies are information entered on browsers when you visit a website or use a social network from a PC, smartphone or tablet. Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server from which it comes, a numeric identifier, etc. Cookies may remain in the system for the duration of a session (ie until you close the browser used for web browsing) or for long periods and may contain a unique identification code.
What are cookies for?
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies, so-called technical cookies, are often useful, because they can make faster and faster browsing and use of the web, because for example they intervene to facilitate certain procedures when shopping online, when authenticating to restricted access areas or when a website automatically recognizes the language that is usually used.
A particular type of cookie, called analytics, is then used by the managers of the websites to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site, and then draw up general statistics on the service and its use.
Profiling cookies can be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, to study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising services targeted and personalized (so-called Behavioral Advertising).
The third-party cookies are cookies sent to your computer by other sites that run content on the page you are viewing. They derive from ads from other sites on the website displayed, such as banners, images and videos.
Options to browse without cookies
Third-party cookies are generally not essential for browsing, so you can refuse them through specific functions of your browser. The "Do Not Track" option is present in most of the latest generation of browsers. Websites designed to comply with this option, when activated, should automatically stop collecting some of your browsing data. As mentioned, however, not all websites are set to respect this option (discretionary). Using the "anonymous surfing" function you can browse without leaving a trace in the navigation data browser. The anonymous browsing function does not guarantee anonymity on the internet anyway, because it only serves to not keep browsing data in the browser, whereas your navigation data will continue to be available to web site managers and connectivity providers. To delete cookies directly there are special functions in all browsers. Remember, however, that every time you connect to the internet, new cookies are downloaded, so the deletion operation should be performed periodically. Some browsers offer automated systems for the periodic cancellation of cookies.
