Types of cookies

This site uses four different types of cookies:

1. Essential technical cookies
These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site. They allow the navigation of the pages, the sharing of our contents, the storage of your access credentials to speed up entry to the site and to keep your preferences and credentials active while browsing. Without these cookies we could not provide the services for which users access the site.

2. Statistical and performance cookies
These cookies allow us to know how visitors use the site, in order to be able to evaluate and improve its functioning and to privilege the production of content that best meets the information needs of our users. For example, they let you know which pages are the most and least frequented. They take into account, among other things, the number of visitors, the time spent on the site by the average user and how they arrive. In this way, we can know what works well and what to improve, as well as making sure that the pages load quickly and are displayed correctly. All information collected by these cookies is anonymous and not linked to the user's personal data. To perform these functions on our sites, we use third-party services that anonymize the data, making it not attributable to individuals (so-called "single-in"). Where services are not fully anonymised, you will find them listed among the third-party cookies for which it is possible to deny consent, to guarantee your privacy.

3. Cookies for user profiling and advertising targeting
These cookies allow us to offer advertisements relating to the user and their respective interests. They are also used to limit the number of views of the same ad and to evaluate the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
They are inserted by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation through partner technical platforms of our advertising circuit and contribute to our investment in websites, allowing us to adequately finance the maintenance of services and their technological evolution. They can also be used to show you relevant ads on other websites you visit.
The cookies actually set can change from one moment to the next due to the technical strategies of the advertisers and their technical representatives, therefore, instead of listing them, we indicate the corresponding companies authorized to provide advertising on our sites.

4. Functional and third-party profiling cookies
This category includes both cookies supplied by partner partners of the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation and known to it, and cookies provided by third parties not directly controlled or controllable by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation.
Cookies from our partners allow us to offer advanced features, as well as more information and personal functions. This includes the possibility to share content through social networks, to access videostreaming services and CDN networks on which we host our content. These services are mainly provided by external operators hired or consciously integrated by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation. If you have an account or use the services of these subjects on other websites, they may be able to know that the user has visited our sites. The use of the data collected by these external operators through cookies is subject to the respective privacy policies and therefore these cookies are identified with the names of the respective subjects reported in the cookie management tool available in the appropriate section of this Policy. These include the cookies registered by the main social networks that allow you to share the articles on our sites and to publicly express your appreciation for our work.
Cookies not coming from partners of the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation, are cookies conveyed without the control of the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation, by third parties who have the opportunity to intercept the user during his navigation even outside the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation sites. These cookies, typically profiling, are not directly controllable by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation which therefore cannot guarantee the use that the third party owners make of the information collected.

Management of cookies

In the event that you have doubts or concerns about the use of cookies, it is always possible to intervene to prevent their setting and reading, for example by changing the privacy settings in your browser in order to block certain types or using the tool that we make available to you in this Policy.

Since each browser - and often different versions of the same browser - also differ significantly from each other if you prefer to act independently through the preferences of your browser, you can find detailed information on the necessary procedure in the guide of your browser. For an overview of the modes of action for the most common browsers, you can visit the address


Advertising companies also allow you to opt out of receiving targeted ads, if desired. This does not prevent the setting of cookies, but interrupts the use and collection of some data by these companies.

For more information and the possibility of renunciation, visit the address www.youronlinechoices.eu/it/

To simplify your choices and in compliance with current legislation, Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation provides you with a management tool for the selective activation and deactivation of cookies you dislike among those controlled or controlled by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation.
Within the tool, all the cookies we manage or knowingly hosted are listed in categories.

In case of non-acceptance of cookies by abandoning navigation, any cookies already registered locally in your browser will remain registered there but will no longer be read or used by the Caritas Ambrosiana Foundation until a subsequent and possible acceptance of the Policy. You will always have the possibility to remove these cookies at any time through the methods referred to in the sites mentioned in the "Management of cookies" paragraph.
