Types of cookies
Indispensable technical cookies
They are essential for proper website operation. Without these cookies proper operation of some functions may be compromised thereby limiting access to contents. No personal information of the user is collected by this type of cookie.
Technical Cookies for functions
These cookies are used to memorise the choices made by the user to optmise and improve navigation (for example, the language chosen or pre-filling a form with a name that has already been used). This type of cookie may include the user’s personal information (eg. user name). Without these cookies a number of functions and navigation through pages may be compromised.
These cookies are used to gain insight into how visitors use the website: if they are first-time users or visitors returning to the website, how visitors move between pages, how long they stay on pages and on the website, their geographical area of provenance. These data do not identify the user personally but are aggregated anonymously by analytic tools. Disabling this type of cookies in no way compromises proper operation of the functions offered by the website.
Social widget cookies
Some widgets, which some social networks make available (for example Facebook ,Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps, etc.), may use their own cookies (third-party cookies). Disabling these cookies will not compromise operation of the website, if not in the sections where the widgets are set (for example for embedding videos or maps), where a quick sharing of contents is permitted or where website contents can be commented on.
Profiling cookies are set to show visitors to the website those contents that are related to their preferences. They can therefore be used to show advertising contents aimed at that person’s interests. This type of cookie operates in collaboration with third party websites and can keep track of navigation history on pages appearing on different domains. This type of cookie usually keeps track of the user’s IP address and other personal information.
