This is because each site may contain elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc..) residing on external servers. Cookies are used for different purposes: user authentication, session monitoring, storage of information relating to specific configurations set by users accessing the server, set preferences, etc...

Below you will find all the information about cookies deployed by this web-site, and the necessary indications on how to manage your preferences.
