What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file that stores some information regarding user browsing; it is sent from websites to users’ terminals (computers, tablets, etc.).
Cookies allow you to identify the user’s device every time they access the site, ensuring a more efficient operation of the site itself, enriching the visiting experience and providing information to the owners of the site.
Some cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session, while others remain stored in the terminals, normally hosted in the browser used (for example: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.).

Which Cookies Do We Use?
They are temporary cookies used for the proper functioning of the site, to allow the possible customization of our site by users and possibly to improve the usability and performance of the site. Session cookies are deleted from the computer when the browser is closed.
Two types of cookies are used: session and persistent. Session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies have an explicit expiration date and therefore remain on the visitor’s computer even when the browser closes, unless they are deleted by the user before their expiration date.
