Cookies make it possible to store information on visitors' preferences, they are used to verify the correct functioning of the site and to improve its functionality by personalising the content of the pages based on the type of browser used, or to simplify browsing by automating the procedures (e.g. login, site language), and finally for an analysis of how the website is used by visitors.

Important cookie management information

When accessing the portal, a banner appears which, in addition to containing a link to this page, also has other buttons. By clicking on "Accept all cookies" on the banner, the visitor expressly consents to the use of cookies and similar technology, in particular to the registration of these cookies on your terminal for the purposes indicated in this document, or to access information about your terminal via cookies. By clicking on "Cookie Preferences" you choose to accept only those selected. Please understand that consent is not required for technical ones because without their tracking, some functions of the site itself and, therefore, your browsing, could be compromised.

Cookies are mainly divided into two macro-categories:

  • technical cookies, needed to allow the user to browse within and to use the various functions and services
  • profiling cookies, needed to trace browsing in order to monitor and profile the user. They reveal which web pages the user visits, which content is read, and can profile the user’s tastes, habits, consumer choices and more.

The Guarantor can allow the inclusion of analytical cookies with technical cookies, only when they are aggregated and rendered anonymous so as not to be attributable to the user in any way.

When you visit a page of our website that contains a plugin, your browser connects directly to the servers of the social network from which the plugin is loaded, and the server can trace your visit to our website and, where appropriate, associate it to your social media account, especially if you are logged in at the time of your visit or if you have recently browsed one of the websites containing social plugins. These services release "third-party cookies." If you do not want the social network to record data relating to your visit to our website, you must log out of your social network account and probably delete the cookies that the social network has installed on your browser.
