Information on Cookies
What cookies are
A "cookie" is a text file saved on the user's computer when he accesses a website for the purpose of providing information each time the user returns to the same site. It is a sort of reminder of the website visited.
With the cookie, the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) stored on his computer, and will be reread and updated every time the user returns to the site. In this way, the website can automatically adapt to the user.
In the course of navigation, the user may also receive on his terminal cookies from different sites ("third-party" cookies), set directly by the managers of these websites and used for the purposes and according to the modalities defined by them.
On the basis of their duration, they are distinguished in session cookies (or rather those temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser) and in persistent cookies (or those that remain stored on the terminal until their expiration or deletion by the user).
Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentications, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow you to browse a website and use all its features. Technical cookies are those whose use doesn’t require the user’s consent. Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about the use that a user makes of a website and that help to improve its operation. For example, analytics cookies show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to verify which are the recurring patterns of use of a website and help you understand any difficulty that the user encounters in using.
Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and habits of web consultation or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.) also for the purpose of advertising targeted and customized services. In this case we talk about profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user pursuant to Art. 7 of the EU Regulation 2016/679 and of the national legislation in force.
It can also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and contained in various elements hosted on the same page, such as advertising banners, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains residing on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by managers of websites or servers other than this website. We talk, in these cases, about the so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. The use of these cookies requires prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user.
