What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that a website visited by the user send to the user’s terminal (usually, a browser), where they are saved and stored to then be resent to the aforementioned website when the same user next visits it. Cookies are classified based on the entity that installs them on the user’s terminal:
Proprietary cookies (so-called “first-party cookies”), installed by the operator of the website visited by the user in order to enable the latter to browse more efficiently the website and/or support the monitoring of his/her activities. According to DPA, first-party cookies can be separated in two groups:
- “technical cookies” used only to send a notification via an electronic communication network or strictly to the extent required to provide a service expressly requested by the user: they enable the website that has installed them to remember, for instance, the settings and the preferences expressed by the user during web navigation, or allow his/her to make a purchase or an authentication. No prior authorisation by the user is required to install these cookies, without prejudice to the relevant disclosure obligation;
- “profiling cookies“, aimed at creating profiles for the user, allow the website that has installed them to monitor the user’s browsing activities also in order to send advertising messages or offer services in line with the preferences expressed by the user whilst browsing the web. In view of the particular intrusiveness of these devices, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be suitably informed about their use and express his/her consent thereto.
Alternatively, whilst browsing the website, the user may also receive on his/her terminal cookies sent by websites or web servers other than the one he/she is currently visiting, for the same purposes mentioned above (so-called “third-party cookies”).
Cookies are not dangerous for any user devices. No personal identification information are saved in the cookies generated by the Website.
