What is a Cookie?

Cookies are technical elements consisting of small  strings of text  and used by web applications within communications in the HTTP and HTTPS protocols: they are very useful because they make it easier  to connect  the client (user device) and the server (website visited by the user).

On each subsequent visit to that particular website, cookies are sent by the client (user) alternatively:

  • to the server of that particular website, which will recognize the client, making the connection faster (if the ownership of the cookies belongs directly to the website, the cookies are defined as first-party);
  • to the server of that particular website, which will recognize the client, making the connection faster, through the use of cookies not directly originated but through another website that recognizes the user (if the ownership of the cookies belongs indirectly to the website, cookies are defined as third party).

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the user’s device. They have different purposes such as, for example, allowing the user to navigate efficiently among the pages, remembering his favorite sites and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to a user and his interests. Depending on the function and use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies, analysis and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies do not require the user’s consent. These cookies are essential for browsing through a website and using all its functions. Without these cookies, which are absolutely necessary, a website cannot provide certain services or functions and navigation would not be as easy as it should be. A cookie of this type is also used to store a user’s decision on the use of cookies on the website.

Technical cookies are essential and cannot be disabled using the functions of this website. Generally, however, cookies can be completely disabled in your browser at any time.

Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies allow the collection of technical information about  the user for the processing of reports and statistics about the use of a website and allow to improve its operation.

They are also called performance cookies. As regard a website they show a user’s most visited pages, allow  to check the recurring patterns of use, help to understand all the difficulties encountered in using it and to show the effectiveness of advertising implemented on it.

If first-party, analytical cookies do not require the user consent, even if, in general, they can be completely disabled in your browser at any time (as for technical cookies).

If third party (e.g. cookies offered by Google Analytics) , the information to the user and his consent for their use is required.

Profiling cookies

These cookies allow to remember the choices that users make on the site and the services specifically requested to provide the most advanced and personalized services.

The use of these cookies requires  the user’s consent in accordance with the regulations in force regarding data protection (art.6 § 1 letter A of the Regulation EU/ 679/2016).

Consent is acquired, for example, through a banner visible to users on the first visit to the website: this consent can be revoked at any time by following the instructions in the cookie policy of the website.

The refusal to consent to the use of profiling cookies does not interfere with the possibility of accessing the website, with the exception of the inability to access the functions using these cookies.

Third party cookies (further specification)

It is also possible to use cookies from different sites or servers (“third party cookies“): this is because the site may include elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages in other domains that reside in different servers from the one where you find the requested page.

In other words, these cookies are set directly by operators of sites or servers other than those of the visited website.

Third-party cookies are also used to customize the advertising display according to the user’s interest and the frequency of exposure to the message.

This information may be shared with other parties, for example advertisers, who may use their own cookies to collect information on the activities carried out by users on the website.

Advertisers can use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertising.

The use of these cookies requires the user’s informed consent. These cookies are not controlled directly by the operator of the visited website and to withdraw this consent it is necessary to refer to third-party websites or follow the instructions in the cookie policy of the visited website.

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (called session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or any logout command is executed. Other cookies (called persistent cookies) “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user: for these cookies the duration is set by the server at the time of their creation, in some cases a deadline is set, in other cases it is unlimited.
