Use of cookie

Cookies are lines of text that act as computer tracks sent by a server (in this case, the server of this Site) to the appliance of a user (generally to the Internet browser) when he/she accesses a given page on a website; cookies are automatically stored by the browser of the user and retransmitted to the server that generated them each time the user accesses the same Internet page. In this way, for example, cookies enable and/or facilitate the access to some Internet pages to improve the navigation of the user, or allow the storage of pages visited and other specific information, such as for example pages viewed more frequently, connection errors, etc. Therefore, for a facilitated and complete usage of this Site, it would be advisable for the users to configure their browser to accept the reception of these cookies. Browsers are often set to automatically accept cookies. However, users can change the default configuration in order to disable or delete cookies (each time or once and for all), with the consequence that the optimal use of some areas of the site may be prevented. Users can also check the modalities and types of cookies that are stored on their browser by changing the cookie settings in their browser. At your first visit of our Site we have presented a cookie bar asking your consent. If you have continued browsing the Site, you have agreed to our use of cookies.
