- How to disable cookies?Control via browser: The most commonly used browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) accept cookies by default, but this setting can be changed by the user at any time. This applies both for PCs as well as mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones: it is a generally and widely supported function. Consequently, cookies can easily be disabled by accessing the options or preferences of the browser being used and generally only third-party cookies can also be blocked; as a general rule, these options will only be effective for that particular browser and on that particular device, unless options to merge and apply these preferences onto multiple devices have been enabled. Specific instructions can be found in the Options or help page of the browser itself. Disabling technical cookies can however affect the full and/or correct operation of several sites, including this website. Normally, the browsers currently used: - offer the 'Do not track' option, which is supported by some websites (but not all). This way, some websites may no longer collect certain navigation data; - they offer the option of anonymous or incognito browsing: this way, data will not be collected in the browser and the browsing history will not be saved, but the navigation data will nevertheless be available for acquisition by the operator of the website visited; - they allow you to delete the cookies stored in full or in part, but once the website is visited again, they are normally installed if this possibility has not been blocked. Below are links to the support pages of the most widely used browsers (with instructions on how to disable cookies on these browsers):
- Internet Explorer
- Safari (iOS)
- Chrome (desktop)
- Chrome (Android e iOS)
Third-party cookies: tihird-party cookies can be disabled either using the above method or by contacting each individual third party (following the links provided in the previous paragraph). On-line tools: please note that from the http://www.youronlinechoices.com/it/ website not only provides more information about cookies, but also allows you to verify the installation of multiple cookies on your browser/device and, where supported, disable them too.
