Why we use them and additional information
Essential cookies, as the name suggests, are fundamental for the website to function correctly. They allow your navigating preferences to be remembered.
These are cookies used by Google Analytics to collect data on the user in an anonymous form in order to show, on other sites, targeted advertising according to the interests shown.
Other Third Parties’ Cookies
Visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the site visited (“proprietary”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). One notable example is represented by the presence of the “social plug-ins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Google Maps, LinkedIn or aggregators of the above such as AddThis. These are parts of the page visited which are generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The commonest use of the social plug-ins is to share contents on the social networks, display the number of fans or include Google maps to show the location of the company.
