1) What cookies are

Cookies are small text strings that sites you visit send to your terminal (usually your browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites the next time you visit them. While browsing a site, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies that are sent by different websites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which may reside some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) on the site that the same is visiting.

Cookies, which are usually present in a very large number of users' browsers and sometimes have characteristics that last a long time, are used for different purposes: performing computer authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc.

More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to your device only for the duration of your access to the site and expire automatically when you close your browser. Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on your device for an extended period of time.


2) The type of cookie

Two main categories of cookies used on websites can be distinguished:

1) Technical cookies intended as cookies transmitted in first person by the operator of the site for purposes strictly related to the smooth and proper functioning of the site itself, which in turn distinguish in:

- Session or navigation cookies: necessary to ensure the normal use of the website and related services allowing, for example, to authenticate to reserved areas, fill out forms more easily at a later access, or to make purchases.

- Functional cookies that are not essential, but improve the functionality of the site as they allow the user to express preferences and then keep them persistent about certain aspects of navigation (such as selecting the language, customizing the font size, or storing some favourite products within an e-commerce).

- Analytical (or statistical) cookies that are considered "technical cookies" when used directly by the operator of the site to collect information, in aggregate, on the number of users and how they visit the site.

The installation of technical cookies does not require the consent of users. However, you may block or remove technical cookies by changing the configuration of your browser options; deactivation or deletion of technical cookies may prevent you from accessing certain areas of the website or using some of the services offered.

2) Profiling cookies: these are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in online browsing. The Profiling Cookies defined by the Privacy Guarantor are those:

- statistics managed by third parties;

- of advertising profiling;

- retargeting;

- of social networks.

Technical and profiling cookies depending on their intended use can then be distinguished into:

- First-party cookies, i.e. those transmitted directly by the operator of the visited website;

- Third party cookies, i.e. those transmitted by third party companies present within the visited site by means of specific codes, which have been included in order to integrate further functions into the site (e.g. widgets of social networks such as article sharing keys).
