What are cookies

A “cookie” is information embedded in a text file that is transferred from the website visited by the user to his hard disk where it is saved for the purpose of allowing websites to store some data to make them reachable on a subsequent access user. It is, ultimately, a sort of reminder of the visited internet page, with which the web server sends information to the user’s browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) which, stored on the computer of the latter, they are then re-read and updated whenever the user returns to the site to improve his navigation. In this way, the website can automatically adapt to the user, allowing, moreover, to offer personalized services. Some cookies require consent, others do not: in the first case, the consent issued by the user is always revocable.

Based on their duration, they are divided into:

  • session cookies (ie temporary cookies that are automatically deleted by the terminal at the end of the browsing session, closing the browser);
    persistent cookies (ie those that remain stored on the terminal until their natural expiry, established by the site itself, or the cancellation by the user).

Based on the origin, cookies are divided into:

  • proprietary cookies, which are created, deleted and modified directly from the site visited;
    third-party cookies, which are created by other content owners sites and displayed on the web page of the site you are visiting.

In other words, these cookies are set directly by website operators or servers other than this website.

Even advertising companies can use technical cookies, for example to limit the number of times in which to display a specific announcement or establish the frequency of display of advertising messages (banner rotation). Analytics cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about the use a user makes of a website and that allow it to improve its functioning. For example, they show which pages are most frequently visited, allow you to check which are the recurring patterns of using a website and help you understand every difficulty that the user encounters;
