What are cookies
A ‘cookie’ is a text file saved on the user’s computer when the user accesses a website with the purpose of providing information each time the user returns to the same site. It is a kind of reminder of the internet page visited. With the cookie, the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) that is stored on the user’s computer, and 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. In the course of browsing, the user may also receive cookies from different sites (“third-party” cookies) on his terminal, set directly by the operators of these websites and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them.
Depending on their duration, a distinction is made between 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).
Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and store specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to enable you to browse a website and use all of its functionalities. Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the user’s consent.
Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about a user’s use of a website and help to improve its functioning. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are visited most frequently, allow us to see what the recurring patterns of use of a website are, and help us understand any difficulties the user encounters in using it.
Other cookies may instead be used to monitor and profile users while they are browsing, studying their movements and web browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), including for the purpose of sending targeted and personalised service advertisements. We speak in this case of profiling cookies. The use of said cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free and informed consent pursuant to Article 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679.
It may also happen that a web page contains cookies coming from other sites and contained in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banners, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains residing 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 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.
