WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings that a website can send, while browsing, to the affected device, be it 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 it easier for you to know our services. Therefore, it is important for us to understand how our web-site is used.
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 website to function properly and to allow navigation; without them it could happen not to display the pages correctly or to use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to memorize the language settings, the display, and so on.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
- navigation or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website;
- functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided;
- analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies and used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
Technical cookies can also be provided by third parties (so-called “third-party cookies“), and can correspond to all the types indicated above, managed in an anonymous and aggregate form, or in a form that allows the users of the websites to be identified, albeit occasional.
Finally, there are also profiling cookies that 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 while browsing.
