WHAT ARE COOKIES?
The Provision regarding cookies dd 8 May 2014 defines cookies as "small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. When surfing the web, users may also receive on their terminal cookies which are then sent from other websites or web servers (the so-called “third parties”), which may contain some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the website the user is visiting.".
Cookies can be used for various purposes such as for example for the execution of computer authentication, storage of information relating to configurations of the machines that access the server, favorite websites etc. . The different types of cookies provided will be illustrated below.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Technical cookies: Technical cookies are cookies that are essential for navigation and can be of a temporary nature (kept only for the duration of the navigation, once the browser is closed these cookies will be deleted) or persistent (kept for a longer period and will not be deleted once navigation is complete). These cookies, precisely because they have technical characteristics, are not subject to the prior consent of the Users.
Profiling cookies: they are used to identify user preferences and on the basis of these preferences, proceed to send advertising messages or commercial offers. For this reason, they require the user's prior consent for their installation.
Analytical cookies: : these are cookies used to monitor visits and use of the web page at a statistical level. One of the major services used by websites is the one provided by Google Inc. called "Google Analytics", through which it is possible to have statistical data about navigation on the web page. This type of cookie is considered in the same way as profiling cookies, unless the IP address is totally or partially anonymized, thus eliminating the sharing of information with Google (in this case, considering them as technical cookies).
The types of cookies described above can be divided into "first party" cookies, processed and managed directly by the owner of the website, or "third party" cookies, processed and managed by third parties other than the owner (think for example Facebook , Twitter, Linkedin etc.).
