Cookies are small text strings that the website sends to the User’s terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored and then sent back to the same website the next time the User visits (so-called first-party cookies). It is, therefore, a tool that assists the Data Controller in providing the service according to the different purposes pursued. Some of these purposes may also require the User’s consent; this consent may be revoked freely at any time by following the instructions contained in this document. During navigation on the site, the User may also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different websites (so-called third party cookies) and this happens because the website visited may contain images, maps, links to other web pages and other elements that reside on servers other than that on which the page requested is located. The responsibility and management of first party cookies is assumed directly by the Controller, while that of third-party cookies fall on the respective owners.
