Extended information on cookies
What are cookies
A cookie is a short text sent to the browser by a website visited. Allows the site to store information about the visit, such as the preferred language and other settings. This can facilitate the next visit and increase the usefulness of the site. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
For the purposes that concern us, cookies are divided into technical and profiling cookies, depending on the function for which they are used, and in first-party and third-party cookies, depending on the person who installs them.
Technical cookies: are those used for the sole purpose of ensuring the correct functioning of the site. They allow the navigation of the pages, the sharing of the contents, the memorization of the access credentials to speed up the entry into the site and to keep the preferences and credentials active while browsing. Without these cookies it is not possible to provide the services for which users access the site.
They are divided into:
- navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and function of the site;
- analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies;
- functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, etc.).
Profiling cookies: are those aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of navigation. They are also used to limit the number of views of the same ad and to evaluate the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are inserted through technical partner platforms of our advertising circuit. They can also be used to show you relevant advertisements on other websites you visit. The cookies actually set can change quickly depending on the technical strategies of the advertisers so, instead of listing them, we indicate the corresponding companies enabled to deliver advertising on our site.
Third party cookies: cookies from a site other than the one the user is visiting, installed through the latter. The cookies from our partners allow us to offer advanced features, as well as more information and personal functions. This includes the ability to share content through social networks, to access other types of services on other platforms mainly provided by external operators in which we host our content. If you have an account or if you use the services of these parties on other websites, they may be able to know that you have visited our site. The use of the data collected by these external operators through cookies is subject to their respective privacy policies. These include cookies registered by the main social networks that allow you to share articles on our site and to publicly express your appreciation for our work.
