What are cookies
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored, to then be re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit by the user.
While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called « third parties »), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting.
Types of cookies
Cookies are classified into two categories:
• technical cookies, which are those used for the sole purpose of « carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service « (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided. The prior consent of users is not required for the installation of these cookies, while the obligation to provide the information remains valid;
• profiling cookies, which are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. Due to the invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their consent to their use.
