2. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files, downloaded on your device (such as your mobile, computer or tablet) when you access the Services. Cookies are used to guarantee the quality, usability and correct functionality of Services, as well as to store and recover information about browsing habits and to personalise their content and may sometimes be used to recognise the user of a website.

Cookies are therefore essential to the functioning of the Services, and in no way constitute a risk to your computer or your device. Moreover, they can help us to identify possible improvements to the Services and to detect website malfunctions.

3. Type of cookies

Cookies can be classified into different types, according to different criteria:

3.1 Types of cookies by the entity that manages them

  • First-party cookies: those cookies sent to users’ devices from a device or domain managed by the editor of the Services itself and from which the Service requested by users is provided.

  • Third-party cookies: those cookies sent to users’ devices from a device or domain not managed by the editor of the Services, but by another entity that processes any data obtained through cookies.

3.2 Types of cookies by their purpose

  • Functional cookies: such cookies allow you to browse and use the Services.

  • Analytical cookies: such cookies allow the cookies manager to perform follow-up and analysis of the user behaviour at the Services to which such cookies are linked; this includes a quantitative measurement of the impact of an advertisement. Any information collected by means of this type of cookies is used to measure activity on any website, application or platform, for the purposes of introducing improvements in function of the analysis of the data regarding the Services use made by users.

  • Advertisement Cookies: such cookies allow the management of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, have been included on the Services.

  • Preference Cookies: such cookies allow us to remember information that affects the behaviour and design of the website, such as your preferred language or region of residence.

4. What cookies do we use?
