DISCLOSURE PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 13 OF ITALIAN LEGISLATIVE DECREE NO 196/2003 (ITALIAN PRIVACY CODE)

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user’s previous activity. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember the state of the website or activity the user had taken in the past. This can include clicking particular buttons, logging in, or a record of which pages were visited by the user even months or years ago.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (“first party cookies”) or may be set by other websites who display content on the page you are viewing (“third party cookies”).

HOW TO MANAGE COOKIES?

Most of browsers, smartphones and other web-enabled devices are typically set up to accept cookies.

You have different options to manage the cookies on your computer or device. You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being accepted, or, depending on which browser you are using, you might be able to receive an alert when a website is trying to place one on your browser. With most browsers you can allow first party cookies to be set but refuse third party cookies.

You can delete cookies stored in your browser by using a function in your browser. Whilst this does not mean you won’t collect cookies in the future, it gives you freedom to delete your cookies after you have been online. This function is often known as ‘clearing cookies’.

Clearing your cookies on one browser of one device does not automatically clear them on another. You need to clear all browsers on all channels independently.
