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 every time the user returns to the same site. It is a kind of reminder of the website visited. 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, and will be re-read and updated whenever the user returns to the site. This way the website can automatically adapt to the user. During the navigation, 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 accordance with the methods defined by them. 

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

Depending on the 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, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users who access a web page. These cookies, so-called technical, are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. 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 that allow to improve its operation. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to check which are the recurring patterns of use of a website and help to understand every difficulty that the user encounters in using them. 

Profiling cookies

Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and habits of web consultation or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted and personalized services. In this case we talk about profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user's free informed consent pursuant to art. 7 of the EU Regulation 2016/679 and the national legislation in force. 

Third-party cookies

It may also happen that a web page contains cookies 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 managers 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.
