Cookie policy

This text is intended to present cookies to the user, indicate how they are used on our website, how to manage them and possibly limit their use. In fact, our site, like most sites, uses cookies: text files created by websites to store navigation information, for example, preferences or profile data. Visitors to a site can always choose which cookies to authorize or disable by appropriately configuring their web browsers. However, there is a risk of not being able to use some parts of the site. By using a site without disabling cookies and similar technologies, users consent to the use of these technologies within the site for the collection and processing of information in accordance with this Cookie Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files that, while browsing a site with a web browser, can be saved on the navigation device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.). The minimum information contained in a cookie is the name of the website (the domain or IP address of the site) from which the cookie itself comes, its 'duration' (that is, the indication of the moment in which it expires) and a value which, most of the time, is a random sequence of characters.

On the site you can find much more information about cookies and how they affect your browsing experience.

Are there different types of cookies?

On websites, depending on the specific functional objectives, different types of cookies are used. Below is a list of these types of cookies with an indication of the purposes for which they are used.

Session cookies (temporary): session cookies are temporarily stored in the computer memory, for example, to keep track of the language chosen for navigation. Session cookies remain stored on the computer until the web browser in which the website was consulted is closed.

Persistent or tracking cookies: Persistent cookies save a file on your computer for a long period of time defined by the 'duration' field. These cookies allow websites to remember information and settings on subsequent visits by users, thus making browsing more practical and rapid, since, for example, it is no longer necessary to indicate a username and password to log in. On the expiration date, the cookie is automatically deleted when you first log into the website that created it.

First-party cookies: these cookies are set directly by the websites consulted by the user (the domain indicated is the same as the one in the address bar of the web browser) and can only be read by these sites. They are commonly used to store information, such as preferences, to be used in subsequent accesses. They can be both sessional and permanent.

Third-party cookies: these cookies are set by domains other than the one indicated in the address bar of the web browser, that is, by organizations that do not correspond to the owners of the websites.
For example, these cookies can be used to collect information for advertising and content personalization purposes, as well as to process web statistics.

Essential cookies: those cookies that are essential to allow the user to move around the site and use the services requested are indicated as "indispensable" such as, for example, to manage the registration phase and access by users to the reserved area of a site.
These cookies are generally first-party and can be permanent or session.

Performance cookies: these cookies collect information on how users use a site, for example, which pages are visited or if you receive error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor, all information collected through cookies they are aggregated and, therefore, anonymous. The purpose of these cookies is only the improvement of the site.

Functionality cookies: these cookies allow the site to remember the choices made by the user (such as name, language or region of origin) and provide customized advanced features. They can also be used to provide services such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these types of cookies can be made anonymous and unable to monitor your browsing activity on other websites.

Technical cookies: these are session and / or functional and / or indispensable cookies that allow users to select certain navigation parameters and performance cookies used by site managers to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the sites.

Profiling cookies: these are cookies used in order to send promotional messages in relation to the preferences expressed by users in the navigation carried out or to the specific sections visited.

Flash cookies: these are files that can be stored on your computer by websites that use Adobe Flash. All popular web browsers have a Flash player for viewing files in Flash format (for example, to view videos from the YouTube site).
The idea behind Flash cookies is similar to that of the cookies described above, even if the implementation and technology are different: in fact, there is no time limit for Flash cookies and therefore they remain stored on the device's device. user until you proceed to delete them. Furthermore, Flash cookies cannot be blocked or managed in the browser, as they are stored in another location.
In the Settings Manager on the Adobe website, you can view the list, manage, delete and possibly disable the Flash cookies on your navigation device.
