Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the single browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to gather information on user behavior and use of services.
In the following of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies simply by using the term “cookies".
TYPES OF COOKIES
By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site ("owners") and from sites managed by other organizations ("third part"). A notable example is the presence of "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by "third part" is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the following are the web addresses of the various information and how to manage cookies.
Il sito include anche talune componenti trasmesse da Google Analytics, un servizio di analisi del traffico web fornito da Google, Inc. (“Google”). Anche in questo caso si tratta di cookie di terze parti raccolti e gestiti in modo anonimo per monitorare e migliorare le prestazioni del sito ospite (performance cookie).
Google Analytics utilizza i “cookie” per raccogliere e analizzare in forma anonima le informazioni sui comportamenti di utilizzo del sito web (compreso l’indirizzo IP dell’utente). Tali informazioni vengono raccolte da Google Analytics, che le elabora allo scopo di redigere report. Questo sito non utilizza (e non consente a terzi di utilizzare) lo strumento di analisi di Google per monitorare o per raccogliere informazioni personali di identificazione. Google non associa l’indirizzo IP a nessun altro dato posseduto da Google né cerca di collegare un indirizzo IP con l’identità di un utente. Google può anche comunicare queste informazioni a terzi ove ciò sia imposto dalla legge o laddove tali terzi trattino le suddette informazioni per conto di Google.

L’utente può disabilitare in modo selettivo l’azione di Google Analytics installando sul proprio browser la componente di opt-out fornito da Google. Per disabilitare l’azione di Google Analytics, si rinvia al link di seguito indicato:
DURATION OF COOKIES
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies "survive" when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
This site does not use persistent cookies.
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser. Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
The disabling of "third-party" cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies "owners" and those of "third parties".
As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools-> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
