What are cookies

A “cookie” is a text file saved on the user’s computer at the time the user accesses a website with the purpose of providing information each time the user returns to the same website. It is a kind of reminder of the visited Internet page. With the cookie, the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) stored on the user’s computer, and it will be re-read and updated whenever the user returns to the site. In this way the Web site can automatically adapt to the user. In the course of browsing, the user may also receive on his/her terminal equipment cookies from different sites (“third-party” cookies), set directly by the operators of these websites and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them.

Depending on their duration, they are distinguished into session cookies (i.e., those that are temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e., those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or are deleted by the user).

Based on function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking, and storage of specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to enable you to navigate a website and use all of its features. Technical cookies are those whose use does not require user consent.

Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about a user’s use of a website and help improve its operation. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to see what the recurring patterns of use of a website are, and help you understand any difficulties the user encounters in using it.

Profiling cookies

Other cookies, on the other hand, may be used to monitor and profile users during browsing, study their movements and web browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), including for the purpose of sending targeted and personalized service advertisements. We speak in this case of profiling cookies. The use of said cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free informed consent pursuant to Art. 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679.

Third-party cookies

It may also be the case that a web page contains cookies from other sites and contained in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, images, videos, maps, or specific links to web pages on other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by website operators or servers other than this website. We are talking, in these cases, about so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free informed consent.
