Definition and Purpose - What are Cookies
Web pages have no mnemonic function. By navigating from page to page on a website, you will not be recognized as the same user on each page.
A cookie is a small text file in which some information regarding your web surfing is stored. Cookies allow you to be recognized by the Website as a unique user. They are sent from the website to your devices (computer, tablet, smartphone, notebook, etc.), to be stored and then retransmitted on the next visit.
Cookies are essential for the functioning of the Internet and guarantee a more efficient functioning of the website, enriching the web surfing experience.

The access to the website and the navigation of it, express your consent to receive cookies.
Type of cookies
For the purposes of this provision, two macro-categories of cookies are identified: 'technical' cookies and 'profiling' cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service” (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies are used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for the purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required. The obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, the website manager will be able to provide in the manner he deems most suitable.
Third party tracking cookies
Cookies of this type are used to collect information on: the use of the website by visitors, the keywords used to reach the site, the websites visited and the origins of the traffic from which visitors come for marketing campaigns. The owner can use this information to compile reports and improve the site. The cookies collect information anonymously. Cookies of this type are sent from the site itself or from third-party domains.
Cookies for the integration of third-party functionality
Cookies of this type are used to integrate third-party functionality on the site (for example, forms for comments or social network icons that allow visitors to share the content of the site). Cookies in this category can be sent from the domains of partner sites or that in any case offer the features present on the site.
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. Due to the particular invasive behavior that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent.
The art. 122 of the Code provides that: 'the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor, user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or the user has given his consent after being informed with the simplified procedures referred to article 13, paragraph 3 '(article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
Duration of cookies
Some cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session, while others remain stored in the terminals, normally hosted in the browser used (for example: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.). There are two types of duration cookies:
Temporary cookies (or session cookies) are removed from the computer when the browser is closed. They are used to store temporary information, such as the items in the shopping cart. Almost all the cookies of the websites displayed are session cookies whose activity ends when your Internet browser is closed.
Persistent cookies are cookies stored on the user's computer or other device during a browsing session, but which remain on the computer or other device after the end of the browsing session. Persistent cookies satisfy various functions in the interest of users (they are used to store information, for example the login name and password, in order to avoid having to re-enter them every time they visit a specific site). They can remain stored in the device for a variable period of time, but in any case, determined, based on the function they are performing.
These two types of cookies (session and persistent) can in turn be 'owners' and 'third parties'.
When we talk about proprietary cookies, we mean cookies sent by the website owner.
When we talk about third party cookies, we mean cookies transmitted by third parties, therefore set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. The latter fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the third manager.
