1. Types of cookies
Cookies are small text files sent to the user’s browser by visited websites; they are stored in the user's terminal to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user's subsequent visits to those websites. When navigating a website, a user may happen to receive cookies from other websites or web servers (the "Third Parties”). This happens because the visited website may contain items such as images, maps, sound files, links to individual web pages on different domains that are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored.
Therefore, cookie may be classified into two main categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.
A. Technical Cookies.
Technical cookies are those cookies used to consent navigation through a website or to provide a service to the user. They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the website manager or owner.
They can be grouped into (i) browsing or session cookies, that allow users to navigate and use a website; and (ii) analytics cookies, to be considered similar to technical cookies in case they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website; and (iii) functional cookies, allowing user’s navigation based on certain pre-determined criteria so as to improve the quality of service and navigation.
B. Profiling cookies
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles relating to the users. They are used to send advertising in line with the preferences shown by the user during his navigation.
