TYPES OF COOKIES
Cookies can be divided into the following categories: technical Cookies and profiling Cookies.
C.1 technical Cookies
Technical cookies allow the site to function optimally, but the user can decide not to allow their use, by changing their browser settings, keeping in mind that disabling cookies may prevent access to some of the site's features.

These are necessary to navigate the site using all of its features (such as the maintenance of the session and access to restricted areas) and do not collect information to be used for commercial purposes. Without these cookies it would be impossible to provide the services requested.
These allow the user to navigate according to a number of selected criteria (e.g. the site language) and in this way facilitate navigation. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous.
These are treated as technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site. They are used to optimise the management of the site itself. The information collected by these cookies does not allow the user to be identified.
For the installation of technical cookies, prior user approval is not required, while it remains subject to the obligation to provide the disclosure pursuant to Art. 13 of the Code.
The acquisition and processing of data from the use of technical cookies is obligatory for browsing the site. In the event of opposition by the user it will not be possible to completely view the site correctly.
C.2 Profiling cookies
