What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files sent to the user by the website visited. They are stored on the computer hard disk, thus allowing the website to recognize users and store certain information about them, in order to allow or improve the service offered.
Main types of cookies
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the data controller or manager of the website.
They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal browsing and use of the website (allowing, for example, authentication to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functional cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) in order to improve the service provided. For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required, while the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which the site manager, if he uses only such devices, will be able to provide in the manner he deems most suitable.
We inform the user that this site uses the free Google Analytics service. We remind you that the data is only used to have the data of the most visited pages, the number of visitors, the aggregate data of visits by operating system, by browser, etc. These parameters are stored on Google’s servers which govern their privacy according to these guidelines.
Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the net. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed on their use and thus express their valid consent.
Art. 122 of the Code refers to them where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after having been informed with the simplified procedures referred to in article 13, paragraph 3” (article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). This site does not use profiling cookies (with the aim of sending advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed in the context of surfing the net).
Publishers and third parties
A further element to consider, for the purposes of the correct definition of the matter in question, is the subjective one.
That is, it is necessary to take into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (which can in-short be referred to as “publisher”) or of a different site that installs cookies through the first (so-called “third parties”).
