EXTENDED NOTICE ON COOKIES
Cookies are lines of text used for automatic authentication, session tracking and saving of specific information relating to users who access the Gruppo Piazzetta S.p.A. server. In detail, they are small text strings which are sent by the Gruppo Piazzetta S.p.A. server to a web client (usually a browser) and returned by the client to the server (without modification) every time the user accesses a given section of the domain. A cookie is thus a small file which requires permission from the user for it to be saved on his/her hard disk. Once such permission has been obtained, the file is saved and the cookie is used to analyse the user’s traffic (in anonymous, aggregated form) on the website.
