INTRODUCTION: What is a Cookie

Cookies are text strings sent from a web server (e.g. the website) to the user’s Internet browser, which is automatically stored on the user’s computer and automatically sent back to the server at each occurence or subsequent access to the site. Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server from which comes, a numerical identifier, etc. Cookies can remain in the system for the duration of a session (that is until you close the browser used to browse the web) or for long periods and may contain an identification number.

By default almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies but each web browser allows to limit and eliminate cookies (for more information see the section of this information notice on “how to disable, enable or delete cookies”).

We remind, however, that disabling or deleting cookies may preclude the optimal use of some areas of the website or compromise the use of services under authentication.

While browsing the site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which may reside some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) on the site that the same is visiting.

How to disable, enable or delete cookies

By default almost all web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies which can be limited or blocked by browser settings. If you prefer that websites do not store any cookies on your computer, set your browser to receive a notification before storing each cookie. Alternatively, you can set your browser so that it rejects all cookies or only third-party cookies. You can also delete all cookies already present in the system. It’s important to highlight that settings must be modified separately in each browser and computer used. Blocking cookies does not eliminate the display of advertisements. Simply, these will not be customized anymore according to your interests and may be suggested more frequently. In each browser the settings are changed following a different procedure. If necessary, use the Browser Help function to define the correct settings.
