Definition of cookies

Cookies are information that a server can send to the PC, smartphone or tablet when a user visits a website or uses a social network. The same server that transmitted them, then, can read and record the cookies located on the user’s PC, smartphone or tablet to obtain various types of information.

Cookies have different functions: in many cases they are used because they make browsing easier and faster, as happens with technical cookies, used for example to save browsing preferences (language, shopping cart, etc.). In other cases, however, cookies are used to monitor users while browsing; profiling cookies record information on what is purchased or what you might want to buy, analyzing readings, hobbies, travels, to personalize the advertising that is shown when you open the e-mail or surf on a social network. Then there are third-party cookies, that is information that is recorded by websites other than those that are visited and that are used for profiling purposes.

Session cookies are not stored permanently on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date, and based on this the browser can identify them as such.

The persistent cookies instead of disappearing when the browser is closed, as is the case for session cookies, they expire on a specific date or after a certain period of time . This means that, for the entire lifespan of the cookie, your information will be transmitted to the server each time the user visits the website, or each time the user views a resource belonging to that website from another. website (for example an advertisement). For this reason, persistent cookies can be used by advertisers to record information about a user’s web browsing habits for an extended period of time.

Without these cookies a website may not be able to provide services and / or functions and navigation would not be as smooth and easy as it should be. A cookie of this type is also used to store a user’s decision on the use of cookies by the website itself.

Analytical cookies (analytics)
Analytical cookies are used by website managers in order to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website itself, and then process general statistics on the service and its use.

Profiling cookies

These cookies usually keep track of the user’s IP address as well as other information, some of which may also be personal.

Third party cookies
Third-party cookies belong to domains other than the one shown in the address bar. Third-party cookies are cookies present on a specific web page, which the user is visiting, and in the elements it hosts (for example: advertising banners, images, videos, etc.). Third-party cookies are usually used for profiling purposes and can also be read by other parties, other than those who manage the web pages the user is visiting.
Cookies of this type are often used by advertisers in an attempt to serve relevant and personalized ads for each user. Advertisers can then use these cookies to build a browsing history of users across all websites that have ads from the same advertiser.
Most modern web browsers contain privacy settings that are able to block third party cookies.
