Cookies are small text files that the sites visited send to the surfing device used by the user (usually a browser). These are memorized in the corresponding folder of the browser while the user is engaged in visiting a website, and then retransmitted to the same sites at the subsequent visits. 
They are used to improve the surfing, and to save the information of the user already inserted (username, password and similar items), trace the tastes and preferences of the user, enable the targeted marketing initiatives to be handled or issue services connected to the activities of the Controller such as newsletters, service announcements on the Site, etc.
Should restrictions be set on their usage, these will affect the usability of the site’s contents during consultation. The user can always effectively block or remove these from the browser’s cache, but such actions could cause an incomplete use of the services offered by the web application.
