WHAT COOKIES ARE
A “cookie” is a text file saved on the user’s computer when he accesses a website with the aim of providing information every time the user returns to the same site.
It is a sort of reminder of the visited website. 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 every time the user returns to the site. This way the website can automatically adapt to the user.
While browsing, 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 in the manner defined by them.
Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (i.e. those temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, by 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 about 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 whose use does not require the user’s consent.
The 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 to improve its functioning.
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 use.
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 services and customized. 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 Article 7 of 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 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. In these cases, we are talking 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.
