Cookies are small text strings that the sites you visit send to your terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored and then transmitted to the same sites the next time you visit. No important or sensitive data is exchanged via cookies.
Cookies can be divided into different categories: technical cookies, statistical cookies, profiling cookies, "first party" cookies, "third party" cookies.
Technical or necessary cookies 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". They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website.
They can be divided into:
- navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
- statistical cookies, assimilated to technical cookies when they are created and used directly by the "first party" website to improve its usability, or by "third parties" and tools are adopted to reduce the identifying power of the cookies (for example, by masking significant portions of the IP) and the "third party" undertakes not to cross-reference the information contained in the cookies with other information it already has
- functionality or preference cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the same.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are often used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same as part of the navigation on the network.
They are defined as "first party" when they are managed directly by the website manager.
When the cookies are set and managed by managers unrelated to the website visited by the user.
A cookie can be defined as "session" or "persistent" in relation to its permanence or storage duration. Session" cookies have a duration linked to the browsing session while "persistent" cookies can last a long time but you can remove them at any time if you wish.
