1. General information about the Cookies used
We inform you that by default almost all browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. Users/visitors can still change the default configurations at any time. As specified above, disabling or deleting Cookies may however preclude the optimal use of some areas / functions of the site or compromise the use of the services offered under authentication. If users / visitors want to decide from time to time whether or not to accept Cookies, they can also configure their Browser so that this generates a warning every time a Cookie is saved. The Cookies used may be of the following type: (1) persistent, i.e. they remain stored on the hard disk of the User/Visitor's Device until they expire; (2) session, i.e. that they are not stored permanently on the hard disk of the User/Visitor's Device and that they are deleted when the Browser is closed. Cookies are used to: (a) facilitate navigation within the site and ensure its correct use; (b) facilitate access to services that require authentication (preventing users from having to re-enter authentication credentials each time they access the services); (c) for statistical purposes, to know which areas of the site have been visited; (d) for optimal management of pages and advertising space; (e) to deliver content and advertising in line with the choices made by surfers (so-called behavioral advertising with dynamic creativity).

In addition, cookies can be owned by the site (used, for example, to know the number of pages visited within the site itself) or third parties (or generated by other sites to provide content on the site visited by users). This site may use anonymous third-party cookies in order to manage the delivery of advertising messages in a dynamic and evolved way. The most popular browsers provide the possibility to block only third-party cookies, accepting only those of the site. In addition, some companies that generate cookies on third-party sites offer the possibility to disable and / or inhibit in a simple and immediate way only their own cookies, even when these are anonymous or do not involve the registration of personal identification data such as, for example, IP addresses.
