What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored and used to improve the experience of using a site.

For example, they can temporarily remember your browsing preferences to avoid selecting the language every time, thus making subsequent visits more comfortable and intuitive.

Or they can be used to carry out "anonymous surveys" on how users navigate through the site, so that it can then be improved starting from real data.


Cookies do not record any personal information about a user and any identifiable data will not be stored. If you want to disable the use of cookies, you need to customize your computer settings by setting the deletion of all cookies or activating a warning message when cookies are stored.
