Cookies may be defined (see Cookie Regulation) as «small strings of text which the websites visited by the user send to the user's terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to be retransmitted to the same websites at the next user's visit. While navigating a website, the user may also receive on his/her terminal cookies sent by other websites or web servers (so-called “third-party cookies”), which may contain some elements (such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) available on the website that the user is visiting. The user's browsers usually contain a great quantity of cookies, which sometimes are also very persistent. Cookies are used for several purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific settings about the users accessing the server, etc.».
There are different categories of Cookies according to objective (non-persistent technical session or navigation cookies; persistent technical cookies or functional cookies; analytical cookies with or without anonymised IP address; profiling cookies) or subjective classifications (cookies attributable to the website owner or manager, the so-called “editor” or “first-party” cookies; cookies attributable to other subjects, the so-called "third-party" cookies).
In particular, the Website uses the following Cookies for the specified purposes and storage period.
The Website does not use any Cookies that have not been expressly specified in the above list.
(iii).1. How to disable and/or not accept cookies
Generally, the data subject may at any time set his/her browser in such a way to accept all Cookies or only some of them or to reject cookies, disabling their use by the Website.
Moreover, the data subject may usually set the preferences of his/her browser in order to be notified every time a Cookie is stored in the memory of his/her device.
Finally, at the end of each navigation session, the data subject may in any case cancel from his/her hardware both the browsing cache-memory and the collected Cookies. If the data subject disables the Cookies on his/her device, this shall not affect or prejudice in any way the interaction with the Website.

Voluntary nature of the provision of personal data
Unless otherwise specified, the provision of personal data by the data subject is optional.

It is to note that disabling (or inhibiting the operation of) third-party Cookies does not prejudice the use of the Website by the data subject, but, as specified above, it may limit the overall performance of the Website or make browsing less effective.
