Definition of cookies

Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers (so-called “third-party” cookies); this happens because the website visited may contain elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located.

Purposes of cookies

Cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring, and storage of specific information concerning users accessing the server and are usually present in the browser of each user in very large numbers. In this perspective, some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are technically necessary. For example, access to reserved areas of the site and the activities that can be carried out there would be much more complex to carry out and less secure without the presence of cookies, which allow the user to be identified and maintain their identification within the session.

Types of cookies

  • Technical cookies: these are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service” (Art. 122, Section I, Privacy Code). They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas).
  • Analytical cookies: these are assimilated to technical cookies and are those used directly by the site operator to collect information in aggregate form, on the accesses and number of users and on how they use the site. They pursue statistical purposes only.
  • Functional cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria, such as language, products selected for purchase, in order to improve the service.
  • Profiling cookies: are those designed to create profiles on the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the web.
  • Third-party cookies: while browsing the site, the user may also receive cookies from different websites or web servers on his terminal equipment, which are set directly by operators of websites or servers other than the site. These cookies may be sent to the user’s browser by third-party companies directly from their websites, which can be accessed by navigating from the site. In such cases, the operator of this site is not involved in the operation of these cookies, the sending of which is the responsibility of these third-party companies.
