What are cookies?
Cookies are small strings of text that websites visited by a user send to their terminal, where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits that site.
For the purposes here, the cookies are separated into technical and profiling, depending on the function for which they are used, and into first party and third party cookies, depending on the subject that installs them.
"Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network or, as strictly necessary, for sending to the provider of a service of a company the information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to deliver that service" (see art. 122 paragraph 1 of the Italian privacy code).
Cookies can be defined as browsing or session cookies (that guarantee normal browsing and use of the web site), cookie analytics (assimilated with technical cookies where they are used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the same site) and functionality cookies (these allow the user to navigating according to a set of criteria, such as language, in order to improve the service provided to the same).
For the installation and use of technical cookies, the prior consent of the person involved is not required.
Profiling cookies are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of browsing the net.
For use of the profiling cookies, the consent of the person involved is required.
Taking account of the different subject that installs the cookies on the user's terminal, depending on whether it involves the same operator of the site that the user is visiting, or the operator of a different site that installs the cookies through the first one, a definition is made of either first-party cookies or third-party cookies.

Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous - so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
Assimilated to technical cookies in accordance with the regulation issued by the Italian data protection authority 229 of 08.05.2014 and subsequent FAQ.
News from this web site can be posted to social networks using links to their sharing tool - those are implemented as normal external links to avoid tracking how many times the page has been shared.
Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change).
Below we provide links to the social networks privacy policies:
As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
To allow visitors to discuss our web pages we use a discussion system called Disqus.
To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.
Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.
Disqus will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.
If you already gave consent to cookies but you want to change authorization, you must remove them from the browser as indicated below.
Anyways, keep in mind that it's not possible to control third party cookies, so if you previously gave consent it's necessary to delete cookies using the browser or asking to opt-out directly to the third party or using the web site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
