Third-parties cookies

The most common use of plugins is aimed at sharing content.

The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user.

These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Fondazione Franceschi Onlus does not use persistent cookies. However, by browsing the pages of this website, you can interact with websites managed by third parties that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies

Cookies management

The disabling of “third-parties” cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.
