1. Introduction

This Cookie Policy applies to all users of this website. The information presented below is intended to inform the users of this website about the placement, use and administration of cookies by the administrators of this website, in the context of users’ navigation on this website.

  1. What are cookies?

The term “cookies” refers to cookies and similar technologies through which information can be collected automatically. An “Internet Cookie” (term also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user through which the Internet is accessed. Cookies are installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera).

Once installed, cookies have a fixed lifetime, remaining “passive”, in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access information on the hard drive of the user on whose equipment they were installed. A cookie consists of two parts: the name of the cookie and the content or value of the cookie. From a technical point of view, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that web server.

  1. Purposes of use for cookies
