What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files sent from the site to the party’s terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored to be retransmitted to the site after the same user visit. A cookie can not retrieve any other data from the user’s hard disk or transmit computer viruses or acquire email addresses. Each cookie is unique to the user’s web browser. Some of the cookie functions can be applied to other technologies. In this document, the term ‘cookie’ refers to cookies, properly named, and to all similar technologies.
Type of cookies
Cookies can be first or third parties, where “first part” refers to cookies that represent the site as a domain, while “third party” refers to cookies that are related to external domains. Third-party cookies are necessarily installed by an external subject, always referred to as a “third party”, not managed by the site. These people may also install cookies in the first part, saving their cookies on the domain of the site.
Another type of cookie is the so-called “Flash Cookie” (Local Shared Objects), used within Adobe Flash Player to deliver some content, such as video clips or animations, to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device but are managed through a different interface than the one provided by the browser used.
Nature of cookies
Regarding the nature of cookies, there are several types:
Technical cookies are only used to “transmit a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the information society service provider explicitly required by the subscriber or user to provide Such service “(see Article 122 (1) of the Code).
They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or web site manager. They can be divided into:
• navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal browsing and use of the website (allowing, for example, a purchase or authentication to access restricted areas); They are in fact necessary for the proper functioning of the site;
• cookie analytics, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to gather aggregated information about the number of users and how they visit the site in order to improve site performance;
• feature cookies that allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to it. No user consent is required for installing such cookies (more information is available in the “Manage cookies below” section).
Profiling cookies are designed to create user-related profiles and are used to send advertisements in line with the preferences displayed by the same in the context of network browsing. The consent of the interested party is required for the use of profiling cookies. Depending on the order (more information in the “Cookies Management” section below), you can authorize or deny cookie consent through the options provided in the “Manage cookies” section. In case of third-party cookies, the site does not have direct control of individual cookies and can not control them (it can not install or delete them directly). You can still manage these cookies through your browser settings (follow the instructions below), or the sites listed in the “Manage cookies” section.
The User is therefore required to check on the third-party site listed in the table below.
