|What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files which each Internet site sends to the user's terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to be then retransferred to the website upon the next access. Cookies cannot retrieve other data from your hard disk, nor transfer computer viruses or acquire e-mail addresses. Cookies may be used both by the owner of the website and by third parties.
Cookies used by the Website
Please find below a detailed description of the types of cookies used by the Website and by third parties (if any).
a) Technical cookies for which consent is not required
Technical cookies are strictly necessary for Website operation and service delivery. Technical cookies may have the following purposes:
authentication, validation and storage of specific technical information;
saving of preferences and optimization of Website functions;
statistics about accesses to and/or hits on the Website (a.k.a. "cookie analytics"). These cookies are used directly by the Website and collect data in an aggregate form making it impossible to trace back individual users.
No consent is required for technical cookies; therefore, they are installed automatically when the Website is accessed.
Please consider, however, that, in order to provide its on-line services on a regular basis, the Owner of the Website needs to use such technical cookies. If these exclusively technical cookies are disabled, the Owner of the Website may find it impossible to provide all or some of its services or to provide them as required.
A single technical cookie is used in the Website; the first twelve characters of this cookie are always "ASPSESSIONID" and are followed by 7 or 8 additional alphabetical characters that change whenever one connects to the Website. This cookie has the single purpose of establishing the connection between the computer and the host server of the site.

Consent may be expressed by interacting with the highlights banner displayed in the home page of the Website, following the instructions provided in that banner (either closing the banner or clicking on OK or scrolling the page or clicking on any of its parts). Alternatively, consent may be given selectively, as explained hereunder. This consent will be tracked during your next visits. However, the user may always withdraw his consent, in whole or in part.
The categories of cookies for which consent is required are listed below
