  • Cookies 
  • What are cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that are sent to the user’s terminal (usually their browser) by the websites they have visited. These strings are stored and are later transmitted back to the same websites during the user’s next visit. 

Cookies can be installed by the website visited by the user (first-party cookies) or by other websites (third-party cookies). This happens because the website being visited by the user could contain elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc.) residing on other servers. Depending on their purpose, cookies are divided into two main categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service, explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, to provide the service in question. They are not used for any other purposes, and are normally installed directly by the website visited by the user. In particular, these cookies can allow for normal browsing and use of the website, and browsing based on a series of selected criteria in order to improve the service rendered.

The user’s prior consent is not required for the installation of these cookies.

Analytical cookies are similar to technical cookies, and are used directly by the website’s manager to collect aggregate data regarding the number of users and how they visit the website itself. These cookies allow the website’s manager to better understand how the users interact with the website’s contents, in order to optimise the services provided.

Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are designed to create user profiles, and are used to send advertising messages based on the preferences expressed by the user while browsing. The user’s prior consent is required for the installation of this type of cookie.

Finally, based on their duration, cookies are classified as either persistent cookies, which remain stored on the user’s device until their expiration, subject to removal by the user, or session cookies, which disappear once the browser is closed, and therefore have a limited duration.
