8) What are cookies and the purpose for which they are collected:

A “cookie” is a small text file created by some websites to store information relating the computer of the users when they access the site. Cookies are sent by a web server to the user’s browser and are stored on his/her computer; then, they are re-sent to the website at the time of subsequent visits.

9) Types of cookies used:

This site does not use profiling cookies: no personal data collected by the Holder during the user’s navigation is used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the same user while surfing the net.

– Technical and functional cookies: These cookies are necessary to allow the navigation on this website and to perform the functions and services requested by the users.

– Analytics cookies: The website may use first-party analytics cookies used only by the site operator, for example, to estimate the number of unique visitors, and for mere monitoring purposes, such as the identification of the main keywords in the search engines leading to a web page, or the identification of the navigation problems of the website.

These data do not allow the personal identification of the user because they are automatically “anonymized” before being processed by the statistical analysis software about web accesses.

According to Article 122 of the Code for the protection of personal data and the regulation issued by the data protection authority relating to ”Identification of simplified procedures for the information and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies ” of 8 May 2014 , published on the Official Gazette no. 126 of 3 June 2014, the Holder can install in the users’ browser the technical cookies necessary for the proper functioning of the website, as well as the analytics and functional cookies above mentioned, which are treated by the law as equivalent to technical ones, also without the prior consent of the users. The information statement remains mandatory pursuant to Article 13 of the Legislative Decree no. 196/2013.

– Analytics third-party cookies: In some cases, the Google Analytics service may be used. Thanks to the cookies, it carries out statistical analysis to monitor the visitors. The data are collected anonymously (without the last three figures of the IP address) and are not crossed with other information held by Google, so these cookies are similar to the technical ones and do not require the prior approval of the users.

For further information, please refer to the Google Analytics Help on “Protection of Data”:

Google also provides a small addition to your web browser deactivating Google Analytics, available at:

– Third Party Cookies: In some cases, “third-party” cookies can be used. They are managed directly by third parties and the Holder does not process them. Third party cookies can be transmitted when interacting with sharing plug-ins or with authentication of social media, when viewing videos on a YouTube channel, when dealing with a form containing the Google Captcha. Some of these features are further described below.

10) Use of social network plug-ins

This website can be integrated with some social network plug-ins (in particular Facebook, Twitter, Google), so that users can publicly share from regional portals the contents they find interesting.

When the user visits a page on the website, the plug-ins in it establish a direct connection between the user’s browser and the social networks. Through this connection, social networks acquire some information about the user, such as the IP address, the date and time of visit, the browser used, etc. Moreover, if the user is connected (so, authenticated) on a social network, the information gathered can be connected to his/her social profile. The Holder does not detect any of the information transmitted to the social network through the plug-in.
