Third Party Cookies
When visiting a website, cookies can be received both from the site visited ("first-party cookies") and from sites managed by other organisations ("third-party cookies"). A good example of this are the "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Flickr. They are parts of the visited page that are directly generated by the above sites and integrated in the host site. The most common use of the social plugins is aimed at sharing contents on the social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies from and to all the sites managed by third parties. The processing of information gathered by "third parties" is ruled by the information notes you should refer to. For an improved transparency and convenience, the web addresses corresponding to the information notes and methods to manage the cookies are listed below.

Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
