The management of the University's institutional website employs a technology called "cookies" together with other tracking tools (such as web beacons). Their use is mainly aimed at investigating how the website is used by users (most used pages, time spent, etc.), improving the website performance, facilitating and enhancing the user experience.
Cookies are small text strings that websites visited by the user send to the computer and any device used to access the Internet (such as smartphones and tablets), where they are stored and then transmitted to the same websites the next time the same user visits.
Cookies can be stored permanently and have a variable duration (the so-called persistent cookies - e.g. in order to automatically access a reserved area, users can choose to have their User-ID and password stored in one of these files), but they can also disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (the so-called session cookies).
Cookies can be installed by the website you are visiting (the so-called first party cookies), but also by other websites (the so-called third-party cookies) and are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a particular site.
The cookies, as indicated by the Guidelines cookies and other tracking tools of the Guarantor Authority, can be classified into two macro-categories:

Users can obtain more detailed and updated information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information in the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers (through the links provided) or by contacting the Controller.
The website uses the following types of first-party technical cookies:
They are therefore tools used by the Data Controller to guarantee, for example, efficient navigation, session stability, log-in permanence and pre-selection of the chosen navigation country. They also serve to remember, in an anonymous form, the choices made by the user regarding the display of certain elements of the page, such as information and communication banners.
As already stated, the use of technical cookies and the performance of processing related to them does not require the user's prior consent.
In any case, it remains possible for the latter to prevent the installation of such cookies at any time through the settings of their browser, as indicated later in this policy, knowing that such a choice could, however, complicate, slow down and sometimes block navigation on the website and, more generally, on the Internet.
This type of service allows for interactions with social networks, or other external platforms, directly from the pages of this Website. The interactions and information acquired by this Website are in any case subject to the User's privacy settings for each social network. This type of service may still collect traffic data for the pages where the service is installed, even when Users do not use it. It is recommended that you disconnect from the respective services to ensure that the data processed on this Website is not linked back to your profile.
This type of service allows users to view content hosted on external platforms directly from the pages of this Website and interact with them. This type of service may, however, collect data on web traffic related to the pages where the service is installed, even when users do not use it.
If Users prefer not to receive cookies, they can prevent their transmission by the website by configuring their Internet browser accordingly. In some cases, however, the use of some parts of the website may be conditioned by the memorization of cookies on the User's computer.
This type of service allows this Website and its partners to communicate, optimize and provide advertisements based on your past use of this Website.

This information is generally used to improve the functionality of the website, allowing, for example, to record any errors detected by users and ensure, therefore, a smoother and more immediate navigation.
However, it is not possible to exclude, as these activities are outside the control of the Data Controller, that Google may enrich or cross the information obtained through these cookies - that the user's browser transmits to Google in the United States according to the relevant terms of service - with other data at its disposal, for purposes outside the scope of this policy.
