Cookies are small text strings that the visited websites send to the used device (for example computers, tablets, smartphones, notebooks, etc.), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the original sites for the next visit of the same user. Cookies are stored through the browser (program for browsing the Internet), according to the user’s preferences.
Similar technologies, such as, web beacons, clear GIFs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behavior and use of services.
From here on we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term “cookie”.

Depending on the cookies’ purposes, they can be distinguished as:

These are cookies that are essential for the proper functioning of the website www.progeconext.com and are used to manage login and access to the site’s reserved functions. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible from login.

These are cookies used to collect and analyse traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The website www.progeconext.com does not use this kind of cookies.
Third party cookies

An example is the presence of some Google tools (Recaptcha, Youtube and GoogleMaps). These are parts of the visited page, generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the host site page.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by “third parties”. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made. For convenience and further transparency, the web addresses of the pages, containing information on how to manage “third party” cookies, are shown below:
