Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored and then sent back to the same sites the next time they visit. Cookies from so-called “third parties” are, on the other hand, set by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is because each site may contain elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc..) that reside on servers other than that of the site visited.
Types of cookies
– Technical cookies. Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). they are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website; cookie analytics, assimilated to technical cookies when used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the website itself; function cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria in order to improve the service provided to the same. The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of the users, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which the operator of the site, if it uses only such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate.
– Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, the European and Italian legislation requires that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express their valid consent. Article 122 of the Code refers to them where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3” (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). This site does not use profiling cookies.
