WHAT COOKIES ARE?
Cookies are small text files that a website can send, while browsing, to the affected device, a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet etc; as a rule, cookies are stored directly on the browser used for navigation. The same website that sent them can then read and record the cookies that are on the same device to obtain various types of information.
Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc. Further information on cookies can be found on www.allaboutcookies.org.
We are always looking for ways to improve our website and to make our services easier to understand. It is therefore important for us to understand how you use our site.
HOW MANY TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are two basic macro-categories, with different characteristics: technical cookies and third-party cookies. Technical cookies are generally necessary for the correct functioning of the website and allowing navigation; without them, it could happen that pages are not displayed correctly or that certain services are not used. For example, a technical cookie is necessary to keep the user logged in throughout the visit to a website, or to store language settings, display settings, and so on.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
- navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website;
- functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a number of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user;
- analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies and used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
Technical cookies may also be provided by third parties (so-called “third-party cookies”), and may correspond to all the types indicated above, managed in anonymous and aggregate form, or in a form that allows identification of website surfers, even if occasional.
Finally, there are also profiling cookies, which have the task of profiling the user, and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during navigation.
