Information on Cookies
What are cookies
A “cookie” is a text file saved on the user’s computer when they 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 website visited. 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. During navigation, the user may also receive cookies from different sites (“third party” cookies) on their terminal, 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 expiration 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 the use of a website and help to understand every difficulty that the user encounters in their use of the website.
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 and personalized services. In this case we refer to profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the user’s free informed consent under Art. 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679.
Third party cookies
It can 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 referring to 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.
