7.3.1 Technical cookies
There are many technologies used to store information in the users’ PC; then, such information are collected by other sites.

They are necessary for the transmission of communication on the electronic network, i.e. to the service supplier to meet the users’ requests.
Cookies introduced into the browser and re-transmitted by means of Google Analytics or by the statistic service of bloggers or similar are to be considered technical only if used by this Site owner to optimize it; in this case, the owner shall, in an aggregate way, collect information about the number of the users and how they visit this Site. Under these conditions, the same rules provided for technical cookies apply for analytics cookies, in terms of disclosure and consent.
From the point of view of duration we can distinguish the temporary session cookies, automatically deleted after every single browsing session and used to identify the user, avoiding the login for every page visited, from the permanent cookies, which remain active in the PC until the expiring date or cancellation by users.
Session cookies may be installed in order to allow access and stay in the reserved area of the web-portal as an authenticated user.
They are not stored permanently but only for the duration of the net surfing until the browser is closed; then, they disappear when it gets closed. Their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers consisting of random numbers generated by the server and necessary to allow a safe and efficient Site surfing.

7.3.2 Third Party Cookies
According to their origin, cookies can be distinguished the cookies sent to the browser directly from the Site surfed and those sent to the PC by Third Parties from other websites.

Third Party analytics cookies are used to detect information on general users’ behavior when surfing the net.
