What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small text files. When a user visits a website, cookies are sent and stored into the folders of their browser and transmitted onto the same sites as soon as the user re-visits them.
Cookies send information to the Convergenze server too. Such information is reread and updated each time the user returns to the company's site.
All cookies usually contain:
indication of the server or domain from which they were generated;
their duration (or expiration date);
a unique identifier;
a unique value.
What are cookies for?
Cookies generally facilitate browsing a site and improve the browsing experience. They also give anonymous information about the users' browsing to the site manager and provide statistical data about the site.
The information collected can be used to create a profile based on the users' preferences and to create customized advertisements which will be sent to them later on.
Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided into the following categories: technical and profiling.
Usually, cookies make all sites work at an optimal level. For privacy reasons, users have the right to disable them by changing the settings on their browser. However, disabling cookies may prevent the users from accessing certain features of a site.

These are necessary to navigate the site using all its functions (such as keeping the session open and accessing the restricted areas). They don't collect information to be used for commercial purposes. Navigation cookies are necessary to provide the requested services.
They allow the user to navigate following some selected criteria, such as the site language, thus facilitating the navigation. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous.
The installation of technical cookies does not require the user's prior consent, although it is necessary to inform them of their presence, pursuant to art. 13 of the Data Protection Code. The collecting and processing of data derived from the use of technical cookies is required for the proper consultation of the site. If the user blocks these cookies, they will not be able to view the website in its entirety.
They are similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information in the aggregate about the number of users and how they visit the site. These cookies are used to optimize the management of the site. In this case, the users' identity is not relevant, so they remain anonymous.
These cookies gather information about the users' preferences and are used to send advertising messages consistent with the profiling and preferences based on previous navigation. Profiling cookies cannot be installed unless the users have been adequately informed before and have given their valid consent.
