What are cookies?

Cookies are small text strings that are stored on your computer when you visit certain pages on the Internet. Cookies can do a number of things, such as allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences, and generally improve the user’s experience of the site.

Some cookies are used to perform IT authentication, session monitoring and the storage of specific information on the users who access a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful because they can make browsing and using the web faster and more efficient, facilitating certain procedures when making online purchases, logging in to restricted areas or when a website automatically recognises the language mostly used.

A particular type of cookie, called analytics, is used by website managers to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the website, and thus produce general statistics on the service and use.

Other cookies may instead be used to monitor and create profiles related to the user during navigation, study their movements and web browsing or consumption habits, also for the purpose of sending targeted and personalised service advertisements. In this case we are talking about profiling or marketing cookies.

It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other websites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, images, videos, etc.. In these cases they are the so-called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. Thus, the cookies you download on your PC, smartphone and tablet may also be read by other parties, other than those who manage the web pages you visit.
