1.1) Definition

Cookies are small text files sent by websites visited by users to their computer or mobile device, where the information is stored in order to be re-transmitted the next time they visit the website. Cookies are used for various reasons. They have different features and may be used either by the owner of the website being visited or by third parties. The principal categories of cookies are:

  •        session or persistent cookies;
  •        technical or profile cookies;
  •        first party or third party cookies.

1.2 Session and persistent cookies

Cookies may be stored only temporarily and deleted at the end of a browsing session (the period between when the User opens and closes a browser window) or may be stored for a lengthier period of time. Session cookies allow the websites to link the user's activities during a browsing session. Session cookies are deleted when the browsing session ends.

Persistent cookies remain on the user's device between browsing sessions, for variable periods of time, and allow the User's preferences or activities on a website to be stored.

1.3 Technical and profile cookies

Technical cookies are used by a website owner simply to transmit a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to the supplier of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to supply said service. Users' prior consent to installation of these cookies is not required if they are used directly by the website administrator.

Profile cookies are used to create user profiles and to send advertising which corresponds with the preferences shown by that user while browsing. Since these cookies are particularly liable to invade the privacy of users, European and Italian regulations require the User to have been duly informed of their use beforehand, through brief information (a banner) and complete information on the website, and the User expresses consent to their use the first time they visit the website.  This consent may be given generally, by interacting with the brief information banner on the home page, using the methods indicated on the banner itself, or may be given or refused selectively, using the methods indicated. A trace of this consent is maintained on subsequent visits. However, a user may revoke consent already expressed at any time, in full or in part.

1.4 First party and third party cookies.

A cookie is a first party cookie or a third party cookie according to the website or domain from which they originate.

First party cookies are basically the cookies set and managed by the owner of the website. For these cookies, the website owner is required to provide information, obtain any consent required and/or indicate how to block the cookies.

Third party cookies are set by a different domain to the one visited by the user. For these cookies, the third party in question is required to provide information, indicate any methods of consent and/or how to block the cookies, whilst the website owner is only required to include a link on their website to the third party's website, where these elements are available.
