What are Cookies
Cookies are small text strings that the websites send to your computer (usually to your browser), where they are stored and later returned to the same websites during subsequent visits of the same user. Cookies can be installed on the user's computer directly from the owner or the manager of the website ("proprietary cookies"), or through the first one from owners of different sites or web servers ("third-party cookies") where some elements may be present (ie: images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains) that reside on the servers other than the one of the visited site. Depending on the duration validity of cookies, these can be divided into two types:
session cookies: they are stored temporarily in the user's computer until the end of the browser session. These cookies are usually necessary for the proper functioning of the applications and functionalities of the site.
persistent cookies: they remain stored on the user's computer for a longer period of time than the single browsing session, depending on their function and the choices of the users in question. Persistent cookies allow information to be transferred back to the web server during each subsequent access to the site.
Based on the purposes pursued, cookies can be grouped into two macro-categories:
"technical" cookies, which do not require the user's consent, and in the absence of which some operations might not be completed or would be more complex and/or less secure; for this reason they are automatically installed after the access to the site; they include: (i) navigation cookies (which allow, for example, to authenticate to access restricted areas), (ii) functionality cookies (which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria such as for example the language or products selected for purchase) and (iii) analytics cookies (which collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site and they are used for the sole purpose of site optimization);
"profiling" cookies for the installation of which the user's consent is required, and which are used to better understand the tastes, habits and choices of the user while browsing the sites, so as to build a profile and be able to transmit him advertisements more related to the preferences expressed by the same user in the online navigation; they also include the so-called "social cookies", used to allow the user, according to the policies of the social network in question (which remains solely responsible), to share their contents, as well as to access the services of the website through one’s social network identifier.
