A cookie is a piece of text that is sent by a web server (e.g. this website) to the user’s Internet browser. The browser then automatically stores the cookie on the user’s computer, and automatically sends it back to the server whenever the user visits the website. By default, almost all web browsers allow cookies to be accepted automatically.
There are two types of cookies:
Session cookies - these are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognize you. You will have to log back in (if login is required) or select your preferences/themes again if the site uses these features. A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.
Persistent cookies – these files stay in one of your browser's subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie's file
These two types of cookies (session and persistent) can be subdivided even further:
- they are considered “first-party” cookies when they are set directly by the owner and/or manager of the website
- they are considered “third-party” cookies when they are created and set by sources other than the website the user has visited.
In quest'ultimo caso il Garante ha espressamente limitato la responsabilità dell'editore al rimando all'informativa della parte che installa tali cookie.
Technical cookies are those used exclusively to carry out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or, insofar as this is strictly necessary, to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide said service. There are three categories of technical cookies: session cookies, analytics cookies and functional cookies (cfr. art. 122, comma 1, from the Code).
For the installation of these cookies you are not required the prior approval of the users, while it remains subject to the obligation to provide the information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code.
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles. They are used to send ads messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.
Article 122 of the Code refers to them when it provides that "the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored, are only allowed on condition that the contractor or the user has given his consent after being informed by the simplified procedures provided for in Article 13, paragraph 3 "(art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
Our site, with reference to the above, is installing on the user's terminal exclusively technical cookie first and third party including:
