What type of cookies do we use and for what purpose?
Our website uses different sets of cookies and similar tools with specific functions. The employed cookies and their function are listed below.

If the site has registration pages and the user is registered, cookies will allow recognising the user and accessing the private areas. Navigation cookies are technical cookies and are therefore necessary to operate the site.
With user's expressed consent, these cookies allow the user to be recognised on returning visits, avoiding re-entering details each time.

Functional cookies are not essential to the operation of the site, but they improve the quality and navigation experience.
These cookies are used, for example, by Google Analytics to process statistical analyses about the navigational habits of site users on either their computer or mobile phone, the number of pages visited and the number of clicks made on a page during site navigation. Our site manages the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes only if the supplier uses the services connected to the browser installed on the pc or other devices used to navigate our site.
