Technical cookies. These are technical cookies that are essential for the site to function properly and are used to manage login and access to the site’s reserved functions.
Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
By visiting a website you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from websites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various information and cookie management methods are given below.

Also in this case they are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).

Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available for subsequent visits by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation.
The user can decide whether to accept cookies using the settings on his browser.
Attention: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
Disabling “third party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way
The best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third-party” cookies.
As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools-> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
