WHAT COOKIES ARE?
Cookies are small text strings that a website can send, while browsing, to your device (be it a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet, usually stored directly on the browser used for navigation) . The same website that transmitted them, then can read and record cookies that are on the same device to obtain information of various kinds. Which one? For each type of cookie there is a well-defined role.
How many cookie types exist?
Technical cookies are generally necessary for the proper functioning of the website and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to view the pages correctly or use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to store the language, display, and so on. Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information service company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service "(Article 122, Section I, Privacy Code). Technical cookies can be further distinguished in:
- navigation cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
- analytical cookies, similar to technical cookies only when used directly by the site operator 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, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the given service
Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are more sophisticated. These cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user during his navigation. Cookies can still be classified as:
- session cookies, which are immediately deleted when the browser is closed
- persistent cookies, which - unlike session cookies - remain in the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device that connects to the site facilitating authentication operations for the user
- first-part cookie ie cookies generated and managed directly by the manager of the website on which the user is browsing
- third-part cookie, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (in force, as a rule, a contract between the website owner and the third party). More precisely, during the navigation on the site, the user may receive on his terminal also cookies of different websites or web servers, which are set directly by web site managers or servers other than the site. These cookies can be sent to the user's browser by third-party companies directly from their websites, which can be accessed by browsing the site. In such cases, the operator of this site is not involved in the operation of these cookies, the sending of which is the responsibility of such third party companies. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made.

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or when the logout command is executed. Other cookies "survive" when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
