Information about Cookies

 

What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a text file stored on the user’s computer while the user is browsing 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 the cookie, the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) stored on the computer of the latter, and will be re-read and updated each time the user returns to the site. In this way the website can automatically adjust to the user. While browsing, the user’s terminal may also receive cookies from different sites (“third-party” cookies), set directly by the managers of such websites and used for the purposes and according to the procedures defined by them.

Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (i.e. the temporary ones and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or the user deletes them).

Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.

 

Technical cookies

Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies, so-called technical, are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all the features. The use of technical cookies 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 operation. For example, the analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to check the recurrent patterns of use of a website and help to understand every difficulty that the user may encounter.

 

Profiling cookies

Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, to study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted and custom services. In this case they are called profiling cookies. The use of such cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent from the user pursuant to Art. 7 of the Regulation EU 2016/679.

 

Third-party cookies

It may occur that a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banner, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers different from the ones on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by managers of websites or servers other than this website. This is the case of the so-called third-party cookies, which are typically used for profiling purposes. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user.
