Group and specifically the following:

of the type of cookies used by the same and the purposes pursued with the information acquired, also providing indications for selecting and deselecting individual cookies.

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES CAN THEY BE USED

A "cookie" is a small text file created by certain web sites on the user's computer on accessing a particular web site, for the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the visited web site is running) to the user's browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the user's computer; they are then re-transmitted to the web site on subsequent visits.

Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary. In other cases, the web site uses cookies to facilitate and ease browsing by users or to allow them to use the services specifically requested.

Cookies can remain in the system for long periods of time and may also contain a unique identifier. This allows web sites that use them to keep track of the user's browsing inside the web site itself, for statistical or advertising purposes, i. e. to create a personalised profile of the user from the pages visited and therefore show and/or send targeted advertising (so-called Behavioural Advertising).

WHICH COOKIES ARE USED AND FOR WHICH PURPOSES

This web site uses different types of technical but not profiling, cookies.

The Data Controller, following the indications provided by the Authority in the general provision of 8 May 2014, sets out below the specific categories of cookies used, their purpose and the consequence deriving from their deselection:
