Definition of “cookies”
A “cookie” is a text file saved on the user’s computer when it accesses a website for the purpose of providing information, each time the user returns to the same site. It is a sort 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 reread and updated whenever 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 on his terminal (“third party” cookies), set directly by the managers of said websites and used for the purposes and according to the methods defined by them.
Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (i.e. temporary ones automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, upon closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiry or cancellation by the user).
Based 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 monitoring and storage of specific information on users who access a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. Technical cookies are those for which the user’s consent is not required.
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 allow it to improve its functioning. For example, the 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 any difficulty that the user encounters during use.
Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and habits of browsing the web or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertisements for targeted and customized services. In this case we speak of profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free informed consent pursuant to art. 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679 and of the national legislation in force.
Third party cookies
It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and which may be 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 that reside on servers other than that 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 speak, in these cases, of the 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.
