WHAT ARE COOKIES
Cookies are small text files consisting of portions of code that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user.
Cookies may expire every time a browser session ends (between its opening and closing) and are defined as session cookies. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, are stored on the device for a longer period of time, allowing sites to store user actions and preferences. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration of the memorization is unlimited. This site does not use permanent cookies.
Every time you visit a site, a small portion of information (in the form of small text files) is saved in the user’s device called cookies.
