Their deactivation compromises the use of services accessible from login. The public part of the site remains useable like normal. "Cookies analytics" are also included in this category, only if used in an aggregated manner to collect and analyse traffic and to monitor services and the use of the site in an anonymous way. These cookies, whilst they do not identify the user, can be used, for example, to reveal if the same user connects again at a different time. They also allowing the monitoring of the system and the improvement of services and accessibility. The deactivation of such cookies can be carried out without any loss of functionality.

These cookies are called lasting and their duration is fixed from the server right from the moment of their creation. In some cases, their duration is fixed, in others it is unlimited. The exception to this is those cookies whose information are memorised exclusively for technical purposes. The site does not use lasting cookies..

However, navigating websites, it is possible to interact with sites managed by third parties that may create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
