What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user. During the navigation on a site, the user can also receive cookies on their terminal that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which some elements may exist (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) on the site that the same is visiting.
Cookies are distinguished, based on their purpose, in "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 service "(Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code regarding the protection of personal data). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functional 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 rendered to the same. For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of users is not required, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code regarding the protection of personal data, that the site operator, if he uses only such devices, can provide in the manner he considers most appropriate.
- Profiling cookies are those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net. The European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and express their valid consent. The art. 122 of the Code regarding the protection of personal data where it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal device of a contractor or a user or access to information already filed is permitted only on condition that the contractor or the user has given its consent after being informed with the simplified procedures referred to in art. 13, paragraph 3 "(Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code regarding the protection of personal data).
As for their duration, "session" cookies and "permanent" cookies can be distinguished:
- Session cookies are temporary ones and they disappear from the computer when the user leaves the visited site or closes the browser. They are usually stored in the computer's cache memory.
- Persistent cookiesare those that remain in the user's computer even after the browser is closed and until their expiration or until the user deletes them. The expiration date is determined by the site that starts them. Often they are used to track the user's habits, so that when the user revisits the site, this reads the stored information and adapts to his preferences.
As for their paternity, "own" cookies and "third-party" cookies can be distinguished:
- Own cookies are those sent by the operator of the website that the user is visiting.
- Third-party cookies are those sent, through the website that the user is visiting, by a third party and different from the operator of the website that the user is visiting. These cookies are not under the control of the manager, and for more information about third-party cookies, with the description of the purposes pursued, we recommend visiting the pages of the relevant information.
