What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files sent from the site to the interested party's terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the site at the next visit by the same user. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from the user's hard drive or transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user's web browser. Some of the functions of cookies can be delegated to other technologies. In this document, the term 'cookie' refers to both cookies, properly speaking, and to all similar technologies.


Type of cookies

Cookies can be first or third party, where "first party" means cookies that report the site as a domain, while "third party" means cookies that relate to external domains.


Third party cookies are necessarily installed by an external party, always defined as "third party", not managed by the site. These subjects may possibly also install first-party cookies, saving their cookies on the site domain.


Another type of cookies are the so-called "Flash Cookies" (Local Shared Objects), used within Adobe Flash Player to deliver some content, such as video clips or animations, in order to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device, but are managed through a different interface than the one provided by the browser used.


Nature of cookies

Regarding the nature of cookies, there are different types:


Technical 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 this service "(see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager. They can be divided into:

  • • navigation or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); they are in fact necessary for the proper functioning of the site;
  • • analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site, in order to improve site performance;
  • • functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided. For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required (more information in the paragraph on Managing cookies below).


Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles relating to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. These technologies do not collect user names, email addresses, telephone numbers, physical addresses.


In the case of third-party cookies, the site does not have direct control of the individual cookies and cannot control them (it cannot install them directly or delete them). However, you can manage these cookies through your browser settings (follow the instructions below).
