What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings that the sites you visit send to your terminal (usually to your browser), where they are stored and then transmitted to the same sites the next time you visit. While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies on his terminal equipment that are sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third-party cookies”), on which some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site he is visiting may reside. Cookies, which are usually present in a very high number in the user’s browser and sometimes with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: performing computer authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations of users accessing the server, etc..
What are the main types of Cookies?
The provision of 08 May 2014 of the Privacy Guarantor distinguished two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.
Technical 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 a service”.They are not used for any other purpose and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
analytics cookies, which are assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site
functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
In accordance with current legislation, the prior consent of the user is not required for the installation of such cookies.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web. Because of the particular invasiveness that these devices can have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian law requires that users be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent.
Session and Persistent Cookies
Session cookies contain information that is used in your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. Persistent cookies are used to store information that is used in between visits to the website, or used for technical purposes and to improve website navigation. This information allows sites to recognise that you are a known user or visitor and adjust accordingly. Persistent” cookies have a duration that is set by the website and can vary from a few minutes to several years.
Cookies of the website owner and third-party cookies
It is necessary to take into account the different entity that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (which may be briefly referred to as the “publisher” or “Owner”) or a different site that installs cookies through the former (so-called “third parties”).
There will therefore be:
Cookies of the Owner, created and readable by the site that created them..
Third-party cookies, which are created and readable by domains outside the site and whose data are stored by the third party.
