What are cookies?

A "cookie" is a text file saved in the user’s computer when they access a website, with 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 cookies the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) stored on the latter’s computer, and they will be reread and updated every time the user returns on the site. This way, the website can automatically adapt to the user. During browsing, the user may also receive cookies of different sites on their computer ("third-party" cookies), set directly by managers of these websites and used for the purposes and according to the modes defined by them.

Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (meaning temporary ones and automatically deleted by the computer at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (meaning the ones that remain stored on the computer until their expiration or deletion by the user).

Based on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be subdivided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.


Technical cookies

Some cookies are used for computer authentication, session monitoring and storing specific information about the users that access a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow browsing a website and use all the functionalities. Technical cookies do not require the user’s consent to use them.

Analytics cookies also belong to this category. They are cookies that collect information on the use a user makes of a website and they allow the improvement of its functioning. Analytics cookies for example, show which pages are most frequently visited, allow the checking of what the most recurrent patterns of use are on a website and help to understand every difficulty the user encounters during use.


Profiling cookies

Other cookies can be used to monitor and profile users during browsing, study their movements and habits in consulting the web or consumption (what they buy, read etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted and personalised services. In this case, they are profiling cookies. The use of these cookies needs the prior liberal and informed consent of the user to be acquired pursuant to Article 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679.


Third-party cookies

It may occur that a web page contains cookies from other websites and contained in various elements hosted on the same page, as for example, advertising banners, images videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that are on different servers to the one on which you find the requested page. In other words, these cookies are set directly by website managers or servers different to this website. In this case we are talking about the so-called third-party cookies, which are generally used for profiling. The use of these cookies needs the prior liberal and informed consent of the user to be acquired.
