What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings which a website browsed by a user sends to the user’s terminal (normally to the web browser), where they are memorized so that they can be sent back to the same website the next time the user browses it. While browsing, the user may also receive cookies on his or her terminal which are sent by different websites or web servers (“third parties”), on which a number of elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages in other domains) present on the website the user is browsing may reside.
There is normally a large number of cookies present in users’ web browsers, and they may persist for some time and used for a number of different purposes: log-in, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server.
Cookies differ from one another on the basis of the purposes of those who use them. On this basis, cookies may be divided into two macro-categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies are used solely in order to send a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to supply a service requested by a user. They are normally installed by the publisher or manager of the web website.
Profiling cookies are intended to create user profiles, and are used to send advertising messages which are in line with the user’s preferences as demonstrated while browsing the internet.
Cookies may be installed on the user’s terminal not only by the manager of the website the user is browsing but by managers of other websites which install cookies through the first website (referred to as “third-party cookies”).
