1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer when the user browses the Internet. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data, in particular, a number that univocally identifies the user’s computer, even when the user changes location or IP address.
Cookies are installed when you navigate the Internet by the websites you visit or by third-party websites that are somehow related to those you visit. They enable those websites to learn about your activity: where you are accessing a website from, connection time, device used (desktop or mobile), operating system, browser, most frequently visited pages, number of clicks and data on your behaviour on the Internet.
You can always enter and use our website without enabling cookies. However, blocking cookies can result in poor website performance.
