WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user. For the purposes of this document, cookies are distinguished in technical and profiling, depending on the function for which they are used, and in first party or third party cookies, depending on the subject which installs them.
Technical cookies are used only to “carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (cf. art. 122 paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code). Technical cookies are distinguished in navigation or session cookies (guarantee normal navigation and use of the website), analytics cookies (similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregated form, about the number of users and on how they visit the site itself) and functionality cookies (allow the user browsing functionality in a number of selected criteria, such as the language, in order to improve the service). For installation and use of technical cookies it is not required prior consent.
Profiling cookies are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. For the use of profiling cookies is required consent by the user.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES
Taking into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same site manager that the user is visiting, or a different site that installs cookies through the first, we distinguish between first party cookies and third-party cookies.
