A. What are cookies and what they are used for?

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the User send directly to their terminals, where they are stored and then sent back to those sites on the next visit from the User (so-called first-party cookies). While browsing a site, the User may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers (so-called third-party cookies) on their terminal; this is because the website visited may contain elements such as, for example, images, maps, specific links to web pages of other domains, which reside on servers other than the one on which the page requested is located. These are cookies set by a website other than the one You are visiting.

Cookies may have a limited duration of a single browsing session (so-called session cookies), in which case they are automatically deactivated when the browser is closed; or they may have a predetermined expiry date, in which case they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until that expiry date, continuing to collect information during different browsing sessions on your browser (so-called permanent cookies).

Cookies are used for various purposes. Some are necessary to allow You to browse the Site and use its features (so-called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether in an aggregate or non-aggregate form, on the number of Users accessing the Site and on how the Site is used (so-called tracking cookies or analytics). Others are used to track your consumer profile and display advertisements that may be interesting for You and consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).
