What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to you and saved on your computer or mobile device,which are then retransmitted to the same sites the next time you visit. Thanks to cookies, the site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as preferred language, font size, other display settings etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to the site or navigates from one page of it to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform digital authentication, session tracking and storage of information regarding users’ activities when accessing a site and may also contain a unique identification code that tracks a user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, you may also receive cookies from sites or web servers other than the one you are visiting (third party cookies) on your computer or mobile device. Certain actions cannot be carried out without the use of cookies, which in certain cases are technically necessary for the site to function properly.

There are different types of cookies, and their functions vary according to their characteristics. They can stay on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time. For example, session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed, whereas persistent cookies remain on the user’s device for a predetermined amount of time.

According to current legislation, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, technical cookies do not require such consent; in other words, they are cookies that are essential for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

On the other hand, the user’s prior consent is required for functionality cookies, i.e. used to activate specific Site features and a number of selected criteria in order to improve the service provided; for analytical cookies, including third party cookies, which allow us to understand how you and other users use the Site; for advertising cookies, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles related to the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web.
