TYPE OF COOKIES
Cookies are information entered on the user’s browser when they visit a website or use a social network with their laptop, smartphone or tablet. Each cookie contains different data (e.g. the name of the server it comes from, a numeric identifier, etc.); cookies may remain in the system for the duration of a session (i.e. until the browser used for web browsing is closed) or for long periods of time and may contain a unique identification code. The use of technical cookies is a processing carried out in the legitimate interest of the Data Controller; the use of analytic cookies is carried out with the consent of the interested part. Moreover, the latter may refuse to provide the Data Controller with their navigation data. To do so, the interested party must disable cookies by following the instructions provided by the browser. Disabling cookies can worsen navigation and access to the website’s features.
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentications, session monitoring and storage of specific information on users who access a web page. These technical cookies are very useful in making browsing and using the web faster: they can intervene to facilitate some procedures when shopping online and authenticating to restricted access areas and they allow websites to automatically recognizes the user’s preferred language. A particular type of cookie, called ‘analytics’, is used by website managers to collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they access the website, therefore allowing them to produce general statistics on the service and its usage.
Other cookies can be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and habits of web consultation or consumption (e.g. what they buy, what they read, etc.) also for the purpose of producing targeted and personalised advertisement (i.e. Behavioural Advertising). These cookies are usually referred to as ‘profiling cookies’. In some cases, a web page may contain cookies from other sites and that are included in elements hosted on the same page such as advertising banners, images or videos. These are called ‘third-party cookies’ and are typically used for profiling purposes. Given the particular invasiveness that profiling cookies (especially third-party cookies) may have in the private information of users, European and Italian legislation stipulates that the user must be adequately informed on cookie usage and express valid consent to the insertion of cookies on their terminal.
