1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files generated by the websites that the user visits, which retain the session data that could be used again at each subsequent visit to the site. This information allows the site to keep user information on the pages and to study user interaction with the website.
Cookies are safe – they can only store the information entered by the browser with regard to access to the browser or information that is found on the web page requested. They do not hold executable code and cannot be used to access the user’s computer. If a website encrypts information in a cookie, only the website can read that information.
2. WHAT ARE THE MAIN TYPES OF COOKIE?
Here is a brief description of the main types of cookie:
- Session and Persistent Cookies
Session Cookies 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 after you have finished using the website (ASP.NET_SessionId and language).
Persistent Cookies (like ASPXANONYMOUS) contain information that is retained for use whenever you visit the website, or they are used for technical purposes and to improve your site browsing experience. This enables websites to remember you on subsequent visits and to adapt accordingly. Persistent cookies remain for as long as the website has programmed them to last (from a few minutes to a number of years).
- First-party cookies and third-party cookies
First-party cookies belong to the site that created them.
Third-party cookies are created by domains other than the site and their data is stored with the third party.
- Technical and profiling cookies
They are not used for any other purpose and are usually installed directly by the website owner or operator. These include, for example Functionality Cookies, which remember certain selected criteria such as languages, products in shopping carts etc., in order to improve the service provided.Analytics Cookies are similar to technical cookies wherever they are used directly by the website operator to collect aggregated information about the number of users and about how they use the site.
The purpose of Profiling Cookies is to create profiles concerning the user and they are used to deliver advertising relevant to the user by remembering the user’s browsing preferences. Given the particularly invasive nature of these devices into the private lives of users, European and Italian legislation requires users to be properly informed about the use of these cookies and to express their valid consent to using them.
