Third-party cookies, i.e. cookies created by a website other than the one you are currently visiting, are also active on this Website (see the cookies table).

These services are aimed at collecting content from the social media channels used by the Data Controller (e.g. YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.). These are parts of the page visited, generated directly by these social media channels and integrated into the page of the Website itself. The use of these tools is aimed at sharing the contents of the visited site on your social profile. These services issue ‘third-party cookies’.
