1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are sent from the website visited by the user to the user's device (usually to the browser), where they are stored so that they can recognize the device at the next visit. In fact, at each subsequent visit, cookies are sent back from the user's device to the site.

Each cookie generally contains:

• the name of the server from which the cookie was sent;

• the deadline and a value, usually a unique number generated randomly by the computer

The website server that transfers the cookie uses this number to recognize you when you return to visit a site or browse from one page to another.

Cookies can be installed not only by the same operator of the site visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also by a different site that installs cookies through the first site (third-party cookies) and is able to recognize them. This happens because on the visited site elements (images, maps, sounds, links to web pages of other domains, etc) that reside on different servers than the ones of the visited site may be present.

According to the purpose, cookies are distinguished in technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the exent strictly necessary, to the provider information services  to deliver a service expressly requested by the subscriber or the user" (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code, as amended by Legislative Decree 69/2012).

Pursuant to the aforementioned art. 122, co. 1 of the Privacy Code the use of technical cookies does not require user consent.

Profiling cookies are used to track the user's browsing, analyze his behavior for marketing purposes and create profiles on his tastes, habits, choices, etc. in order to convey targeted advertising messages in relation to the user's interests and in line with the user’s preferences during online navigation. These cookies can be installed on the user's terminal only if this has given its consent with the simplified procedures indicated in the relevant provisions. Depending on their duration, cookies are distinguished in persistent, which remain stored until their expiration, on the user's device, unless removal by the latter, and session, which are not stored permanently on the device of the user and disappear when the browser is closed.
