What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files sent by a server to a user’s device (usually the Internet browser) when the user accesses a page on a website. Cookies allow the web server to store information for reuse during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later (persistent cookies). Cookies make it easier to navigate around the site and allow the storage of visited pages and other specific information, such as frequently consulted pages, connection errors, etc. Cookies are stored, according to user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone). Browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari etc.) are often set to automatically accept cookies. However, users can change the default configuration to disable or delete cookies with the consequence, however, that the optimal use of certain areas of the Site may be precluded. Therefore, for optimal use of this Site, it would be advisable for users to configure their browser to accept the receipt of such cookies. In the course of browsing, moreover, the user may also receive on his/her terminal equipment cookies from different websites (so-called “third party” cookies) set directly by the managers of said websites and used for the purposes and according to the methods defined by them.

Profiling cookies.
While browsing this site, the user may receive profiling cookies installed and managed by third parties on his or her terminal in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during his or her web browsing.

Tools are in place to reduce the identifying power of cookies by masking significant portions of the IP. A privacy policy can be found on Matomo’s website
