A cookie is a text string sent by a web server (for example, the website) to the user's Internet browser, which automatically saves it on the user's computer and automatically sends it back to the server each time the site is accessed. Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server it comes from, a numeric identifier, etc. Cookies can remain in the system for the duration of the session (i.e. until the browser used for web navigation is closed) or for longer periods, and may contain a unique identifier code. By default, almost all web browsers are set up to automatically accept cookies. However, each web browser allows cookies to be restricted and deleted (for more information refer to the section in this information notice on âHow to enable, disable or delete cookiesâ). Remember, however, that disabling or deleting cookies may impede the optimum use of some areas of the site or compromise the use of services requiring authentication.

By default, almost all web browsers are set up to automatically accept cookies. These can be restricted or blocked through the browser settings. If you prefer websites not to save certain cookies on your computer, set up the browser so that you receive a notification prior to saving each cookie. Alternatively, you can set up your browser to reject all cookies or only third party cookies. You can also delete all cookies already on the system. It is important to underline that the settings must be changed separately for each browser and each computer. If you block the saving of cookies, we cannot guarantee the correct functioning of the website. Some functions may be unavailable and it may no longer be possible to view certain websites. Furthermore, blocking cookies does not block advertising. These will simply be no longer customized on the basis of your interests and will be sent more frequently. Settings are changed differently for each browser. If necessary, use the browser guide function to define the correct settings.
