What is a cookie and what is it for?

A “Cookie” is a small file that is stored in the user’s computer, tablet, smart phone or any other device with information about browsing. The complete set of “cookies” of all our users helps us to improve the quality of our website, allowing us to control which pages are useful, which are not and which are capable of improvement.

Cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the Internet: they provide countless advantages in the provision of interactive services, they make browsing easier and they improve the usability of our website.

Under no circumstances could cookies damage your computer. On the contrary: the fact that they are active allows us to identify and resolve any potential errors we may have.
