Detailed notice on cookies on

In accordance with article 13 of (EU) Regulation 2016/679 and the Italian Data Protection Authority measure for the "Identification of simplified methods for the cookie notice and the acquisition of consent for the use of cookies - 8 May 2014", this notice explains what cookies are and illustrates the various types of cookies on the website.

Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer (usually the browser), where they are stored so they can be retransmitted to the same websites the next time you visit them.

Cookies can be stored permanently on your computer and have a variable duration period (persistent cookies) or they can be erased when you close your browser or have a limited duration period (session cookies).

Cookies can be installed by the website you visited (first-party cookies) or by other websites (third-party cookies); this happens because the website you visit may have elements like images, maps, sounds and specific links to web pages of other domains that are stored on different servers to the one on which the requested page is stored. Some operations may not be possible without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the website to function.

The procedures for managing cookies differ according to the browser used; you can discover how to manage settings by accessing the guide section of your browser.

The changes you make to your settings will only be applicable to that specific browser; to change your settings on all devices you will have to repeat the same operation in every browser.

The ERG S.p.A. website contains a pushbar with a short notice on the management of cookies. By accepting or closing the pushbar the user consents to the installation of both technical cookies and third-party profiling/social cookies.
