WHAT IS A COOKIE?
As stated by the Italian Data Protection Authority on their relevant FAQ page, “… cookies are small text files that websites send to the computer terminals (usually browsers) of visitors, where they are memorized in order to be retransmitted to the same sites on subsequent visits by the same users. While navigating a website, users may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers (so-called "third party" cookies); this happens because the visited website may contain elements like, for example, images, maps, sounds, or specific links to web pages in other domains residing on different servers from the one hosting the requested page. In other words, cookies that are set by websites other than the one you are currently visiting”.

When visiting a website, cookies can be received both from the visited site (“proprietary”), and from websites managed by other organizations (“third-party”). A good example are the “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, and Google. These involve parts of the visited page being generated directly from the above-mentioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is for sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies from and to all the sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is disciplined by the relative site statements to which you are requested to refer. In order to ensure maximum transparency and convenience, the web addresses for the different privacy statements and methods for the management of the relative cookies for the social networks connected to the present website are as follows:
