1 – COOKIE
What is a cookie and what is it for?
Cookies are small text strings that the sites, visited by the user through the use of any suitable device (such as a PC, a tablet or a smartphone), send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored to be then transmitted back 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. Each cookie contains different data (for example, the name of the server it comes from, a numerical identifier, etc.), it can remain in the system for the duration of a session (until the browser is closed) or for long periods and can contain a unique identification code.
Cookies are used for different purposes depending on their type: some are strictly necessary for the proper functionality of a website (technical cookies), while others optimize the performance to offer a better user experience or allow you to acquire statistics on ‘use of the site, such as cookies analytics, or allow you to display personalized advertising, such as profiling cookies.
2 – GENERAL TYPES OF COOKIES
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting 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. They are not used for other purposes, they are normally installed directly by the manager or publisher of the website, do not require the prior consent of users and 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.
They are essential for the proper functioning of the site.
Analytical cookies (also called “profiling” cookies) are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net. The law provides that the user is adequately informed about the use of the same in order to express their consent.
Third-party cookies are installed by a different site through the site you are visiting. These cookies can be sent to the user’s browser by third-party companies directly from their sites for their own purposes, including, where appropriate, profiling. Users must be informed in advance of how these cookies to work and those necessary to give consent to their use.
I can therefore be defined as “third-party analytical cookies” those cookies used by the site publisher for the purposes of aggregate analysis of visits to the site itself, through the use of a third-party service.
