Cookies consists of portions of a code installed inside the browser. Cookies are small text files which the sites visited by users send to the user’s terminal, where they are memorised in order to be sent back later to the sites during subsequent visits by the user. Cookies are used for many purposes, they have different features and they can be used both by the owner of the Site which the User is visiting and by third parties. Cookies are typically divided into the following categories:
- Session cookies or persistent Cookies
- Technical or profiling Cookies
- First-party or third-party Cookies
Session and persistent Cookies
Cookies can be erased at the end of a session with the browser (the time period between opening and closing of web browser by the user) or can be stored for a longer term. Session Cookies are those allowing the web sites to link users’ actions during a browser session Session Cookies expire when the browser session ends. Persistent cookies are stored in the user’s hard drive among browser’s subfolders for variable periods of time and allow to record the User’s preference and actions in relation to a web site.
Technical and profiling Cookies
Technical Cookies are those used by the owner of an Internet site for the sole purpose of transmitting information over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of a service from an information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or User to provide that service For the installation of such technical Cookies, the prior consent of the person involved is not required where used directly from the site manager. Profiling Cookies are used to create profiles relating to the User and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the User in the context of browsing the net. Due to particular invasiveness which such Cookies can have within the ambit of Users’ privacy, European and Italian legislations provide that the user must be adequately informed about their use by a banner and detailed note on the site and must give his/her own explicit consent to this extent when they visit the site for the first time. Such a consent can be expressed in a general way by interacting with the banner on the home page of the site and following the instructions indicated therein, or can be given or refused in a selective manner by way of the following instructions. This consent is then stored to be used over the next visits. However, the user can withdraw, totally or partially, their consent.
First-party and third-party Cookies
Cookies can be first-party (so called “first-party Cookie”) or third-party (so called “third-party Cookie”) in relation to the web site or domain where they come from. First-party Cookies are set up and managed by the owner of the site. For these Cookies, the disclosure requirement, the acquisition and the consent (where required) and/or the blocking of Cookies is reserved to the owner of the site. Third-party Cookies are set up by a different domain from the one visited by the User. As regards them, the disclosure requirement and the possible instructions about the contingent consent and/or the blocking of Cookies is a third-party duty, whereas the owner of the site is asked only to insert in the site the link to the third party’s site where such information is available.
The Cookies used by the Owner of the Web Site are:
- navigation cookies used to save the User’s preferences and optimise their browsing experience
- Cookie analytics, used to acquire statistical information on how Users navigate. Such information is treated in an aggregate and anonymous form
- Functional cookies, including third parties’, used to activate specific functions of this Web site and necessary for providing the service or improving it.
- consent cookies, used to keep track of the consent given by the user so that the short information notice and the consent request are not displayed again
As specified in the previous paragraph, such Cookies are of a technical nature, and therefore do not require the prior consent by the User to be installed and used.
