Cookies: General Information
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Are cookies dangerous?
No. Cookies are small pieces of text. They are not computer programs and they can’t be executed as code. Also, they cannot be used to disseminate viruses. All current versions of the most common browsers allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives.
What are the main types of cookies?
Here you can find a short description of the main types of cookies:

Profiling cookies have the aim of creating user profiles and are used to send advertisements in line with the user’s preferences as shown during browsing.
