YARPA.IT uses technical cookies to ensure the proper functioning of the procedures and improve the user experience of online applications.
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same websites the next time they visit. The so-called “third party” cookies are, instead, set by a website different from the one the user is visiting. This is because on each site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers different from the one of the website visited.
Types of cookies
– Technical cookies. Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website; analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria in order to improve the service provided to him/her. The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of users, while the website manager is obliged to disclose the information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which can be provided, if using only such devices, in the manner it deems most appropriate.
– Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the user’s preferences when surfing the web. Due to the fact that such devices may be particularly invasive to the privacy of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent. Art. 122 of the Code refers to them where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or user or access to information already stored is allowed only on condition that the contractor or user has expressed his consent after having been informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3” (Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Code). This website does not use profiling cookies.
“Third party” cookies
By visiting this website, you may receive cookies from websites managed by other organisations (“third parties”). An example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn, or embedded multimedia display systems such as Youtube, Flikr. These are parts generated directly by the abovementioned websites and integrated into the web page of the visited host website. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all websites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made. For the sake of transparency and convenience, we provide below the web addresses of the different policies and cookies management policies.

Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent cookies and their duration is fixed by the server when they are created. In some cases an expiry date is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies using your browser settings.
Please note that disabling all or part of the technical cookies may compromise the optimal use of the website.
Disabling “third party” cookies in no way affects the website’s browsability.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third party” cookies. For example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and remove them. On the Internet you can easily find documentation on how to set the cookie management rules for your browser, for example some addresses related to the main browsers are shown:
