What cookies are

Cookies are small text files that are saved on the users’ device when they visit a website.
At each subsequent visit, cookies are sent to the website that originated them (first-party cookies) or to another site that recognizes them (third-party cookies).
They have different purposes such as, for example, allowing to navigate efficiently between pages and, in general, improve the browsing experience.
They also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to the user and its interests. Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into two categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

They can be divided into browsing 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, used directly by the site manager to collect information on the number of users and how they visit the site; functional cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase or those included in the favourite lists) in order to improve the service.
For the installation of these cookies, users’ prior consent is not required, while the obligation to inform the user about which cookies are saved and used remains.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user in the context of web browsing.
Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices can have in the private life of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about their existence and use and express its consent to their use.
