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 by the same user. While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the site that the same is visiting. Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes even with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, choice of consultation language, storage of the shopping cart, etc.

What are the main types of cookies?

In this regard and for the purposes of provision no. 229/2014 of the Privacy Guarantor, two macro-categories are therefore identified: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

  1. to. 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 as 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 Privacy Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager 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): our site uses non-persistent technical cookies only in order to improve your browsing experience and allow you to log in more quickly; 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; 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. The prior consent of users is not required for the installation of these cookies.
  2. b. Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed on the use of the same and thus express their valid consent. Our site does not use profiling cookies .

Session and Persistent Cookies .

Session Cookies, also used by our Site, contain information that is used in your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is stored on your computer beyond the time of use of the site.

Persistent Cookies are used to maintain the information that is used in the period between one access and another to the website, or used for technical purposes and to improve navigation on the site. This data allows sites to recognize that you are an already known user or visitor and adapt accordingly. “Persistent” cookies have a duration that is set by the website and which can vary from a few minutes to two years.

First-party and third-party cookies. It is necessary to take into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (so-called “first part”) or a different site that installs cookies through of the first (so-called “third parties”). First-party cookies are created and readable by the site that created them. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are created and readable by domains external to the site and whose data are stored at the third party. This site uses first-party cookies of a technical nature, for which, as mentioned, consent is not required, but only this information.
