What are cookies
A “cookie” is a text file saved on the user’s computer when he or she accesses a website for the purpose of providing information every time the user returns to the same site. It is a sort 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 latter’s computer, which will be re-read and updated each time the user returns to the site. In this way the website can automatically adapt to the user. During navigation, the user may also receive cookies from different sites (“third party” cookies) on his or her terminal, set directly by the operators of said websites and used for the purposes and according to the procedures defined by them.
Depending on their duration, cookies are divided into session cookies (ie the temporary cookies which are automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, when the browser is closed) and persistent cookies (ie those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or cancellation by the user).
Cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies, depending on their function and purpose of use.
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitor sessions and store specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all of its features. The use of technical cookies does not require the user’s consent.
Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about the use that a user makes of a website and that allows the website to improve its operation. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow a website’s recurrent patterns of use to be identified and can help to understand every difficulty that the user encounters in use.
Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, to study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), including for the purposes of sending advertising of targeted and personalised services. In this case we speak about profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user pursuant to art. 7 of the 2016/679 EU Regulation.
A web page may also contain cookies from other sites, present in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than those on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by managers of websites or servers other than this website. We speak, in these cases, of so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user.
