Like virtually all websites, our website also uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by a user (but also other sites or webservers) send and record on his/her computer (or mobile device), to be retransmitted to the same sites (or webservers) the next time they are visited, thereby sending information.

  • first party or third party cookies (in the latter case they are imposed by a site or a webserver different from that currently visited by the user);
  • technical cookies (necessary, sometimes essential, for a complete - or better - use of the website) or profiling cookies (aimed at creating a profile of the user, to subsequently send him/her advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed during prior browsing).
