What are cookies
Cookies are small text files that a website sends to your computer or other device connected to Internet to uniquely identify the user’s browser or to save information or settings in your browser. At each subsequent visit, cookies are transmitted back to the site that created them and allow thus to “remember” the user’s actions and preferences over time. They are registered locally in the temporary memory of the user’s browser for varying periods of time depending on the need and generally comprised between a few hours and a few years, with the exception of cookies profiling the maximum duration of which is of 365 calendar days.
Cookies have different purposes, for example, simplify site navigation, to analyze site usage, store the user’s favorite sites, present advertising content more targeted than its interests.
Types of cookies
There are different types of cookies:
i. with respect to the function:
a. technical cookies: these cookies are strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the site, which are normally installed by the owner or operator of the website. They are useful to navigate through the pages, share the content of the site, store the user’s login credentials to speed entry to the site and to maintain the preferences and credentials while browsing.
These cookies may be grouped into:
– session cookies which allow users to navigate and use our Website (e.g. to purchase items on line or authenticate themselves to access certain sections);
– analytics cookies which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website;
– functional cookies, which allow users to navigate as a function of certain pre-determined criteria (such as language or products to be purchased) in order to improve the quality of service;
b. statistical and performance cookies: these are cookies that allow you to learn how users use the site, to be able to evaluate and improve the performance and prioritize the production of content that best meet the information needs of users. The information collected by these cookies are usually anonymous and not linked to your personal information and generally the use of them is connected to third-party services. When the data thus collected are not completely anonymous, the user is informed and can refuse to give consent to the use;
c. profiling cookies: aimed at creating user profiles, for example for promotional purposes, in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences given during navigation and to evaluate the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Thanks to these cookies advertisements appear on the site and therefore are potentially invasive. For this reason, for their use a dual informative must be provided, short and long, and it is necessary that the user gives their consent;
a. cookie of the owner of the site (“First Party“): these cookies are set by the owner of the website visited by the user, which is responsible for providing the relevant information on their use;
iii. with respect to the length of storage:
a. session cookies: these are generally technical cookies which are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and are deleted when closing the browser. They allow the user to navigate and use the site (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or to authenticate for access to restricted areas);
b. permanent cookies: these are cookies stored on the user’s device for varying periods of time and allow you to store your preferences or user actions on a website.
