What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the website visited sends to users’ devices, where they are stored and are then sent back to the same site on the user’s next visit. Third party cookies, instead, are placed by a website other than the site that the user is browsing. This happens because each site may contain items (e.g. images, maps, or links to web pages of other domains) which are hosted on servers other than the server of the site being visited. Lo Studio Legale Grompe Redaelli e Associati uses its own cookies and third party cookies.
Why are cookies used?
Cookies are used for different purposes, such as IT authentication, monitoring sessions, memorizing information about specific configurations regarding users accessing the site and storing their preferences. In general, they are used to improve user experience by personalizing the site based on the user's browsing habits.
Types of cookies
- Technical cookies
These are needed in order to browse the site or to provide the service requested by the user. They are used only to provide efficient browsing and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Some activities could not be performed without technical cookies, or they would be more complex and/or less secure. Users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of such cookies.
- Profiling cookies
These cookies are used to create user profiles and to send advertising messages in line with users’ preferences as shown by their website browsing. Because these cookies can be invasive with regard to users’ privacy, European and Italian regulations require that the user is adequately informed about their use and can thus express informed consent.
- Third party cookies
When you visit the website you may receive cookies from sites operated by other organizations (third parties). These cookies are generated directly by such sites and are embedded in the web pages of the zost site visited. The handling of information collected by third parties is regulated by the relative third party information notice.

How to manage cookies
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies by changing your browser settings. Partially or fully disabling technical cookies may affect the optimal use of the site.

How long do cookies last?

Some cookies (i.e. session cookies) are deleted when the browser is closed or the log out command is used. Other cookies continue to be active after the browser has been closed (i.e. persistent cookies), which means that they are available for subsequent visits to the site by the user. Their duration is set by the server when they are created. Studio Legale Grompe Redaelli e Associati uses both session cookies and persistent cookies.
