- What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings that the sites you visit send to your terminal equipment (usually your browser), where they are stored and then sent back to the same sites the next time you visit.
Some cookies are installed by the site operator and are known as “first-party” cookies. While visiting a website, a user may also receive cookies on their terminal that are sent from different websites or servers (“third parties”), which contain certain elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages on other domains) found on the website that the user is visiting.
Depending on the type and purpose of the cookies, different requirements and purposes under data protection legislation apply. The types of cookies used by the Website are set out below.
- Technical cookies
Technical cookies enable 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.
For this type of cookie, it is not necessary to obtain the user’s consent, but the following information on the type and purpose of cookies used by the Website is sufficient:
- A. Session or navigation technical cookies
They ensure normal navigation and use of the Website (e.g., they save your session, save your browsing preferences, remember certain selection criteria such as language, etc.).
These first-party cookies remain on the site for the duration of a session, that is, until you close the browser used for web browsing.
- B. Functionality technical cookies
They allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to improve the service provided to them. These first-party cookies remain on the site for the duration of a session, that is, until you close the browser used for web browsing.
- A. Analytical technical cookies
The Website uses third-party analytics cookies, which are considered similar to technical cookies in that they are used directly by the Website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the Website.
These cookies remain on the site for the duration of a session, that is, until you close the browser used for web browsing.
- Profiling cookies
The Website does not use profiling cookies, which are necessary to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user within the pages of the Website.
- Managing cookie preferences
Cookies are generated by opening and closing the browser (when you log in to a session) and are deactivated by clearing the browser cache.
You can also object to registering cookies on your hard drive by configuring your browser to disable cookies. For more information, see the specific help page of the web browser you are using.

The data collected using cookies may be processed by the system administrator. This data may be communicated to IT consultancy companies appointed as data processors.
The data collected using cookies will not be transferred to third parties or otherwise disseminated.

In addition, you have the right to request deletion, restriction of processing, and portability of data, as well as the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority and to object in any case, on legitimate grounds, to the processing of your personal data (Art. 17 et seq. of the GDPR).
