What are cookies
The Site uses “cookies” and similar technologies. Cookies are small text files which are downloaded by the browser to the navigation software used by the User when he/she visits an internet site. The cookies are then successively retransmitted during the navigation session (“temporary cookies”) or on every successive visit made by the User (“permanent cookies”) to the site they came from or to any other site capable of recognising that specific cookie. This allows the site to recognise the navigation device of the individual user.
What they do
They are used by site managers to, amongst other things, remember the User’s log-in data and then automatically recognise them (thus removing the need to retype username and password every time), to manage services such as home banking and online shopping, to personalise a website, to make navigation easier for the user, and, by checking the number of times the various web pages are accessed, present the information most frequently requested by the User more effectively. Sometimes cookies can come from third parties who are different from the manager of the site visited by the User (“third party cookies”). These cookies may or may not contain personal information about the user.
The main types
Cookies can generally be divided into 2 main categories:
Technical cookies, which include:
- navigation or session cookies: these are essential to allowing the User to navigate the site and use its services. It would be impossible, in fact, to provide the services requested by the User without them. Examples are cookies designed to make home banking transactions secure, for instance, or cookies that save purchases in online shopping as well as those that facilitate the downloading of webpages visited;
- Performance and analytical cookies: these gather information relating to the pages most often visited by Users, and error or malfunction messages relating, for example, to incorrect displaying of web pages; they don’t collect personal information regarding individual Users, simply aggregate information useful to improving the functioning of the site;
- Cookies functional to the usability of the Site and services (“functionality cookies”): these allow the site to remember certain information chosen by the User or referable to him/her (for example, user name, pre-selected language, nationality, preferences) to improve the navigation experience; they can also allow the recording of choices made regarding the layout of pages visited or facilitate the provision of services requested by the User (for instance, by saving the geographical area the User comes from and automatically linking the services requested to it). They gather personal data which normally remain anonymous;
Profiling cookies, which include:
- Targeting or marketing cookies: these remember the browsing patterns of the User with the aim of providing the latter with advertising messages that correspond to his/her interests and preferences or to avoid resending the same advertising message as well as to measure the efficacy of advertising campaigns through statistical analysis of data;
- Third party targeting or marketing cookies: these are used in certain cases by advertising operators with the consent of the site manager and can supply not just the manager of the site but also third-party advertisers with information on the User’s navigation habits.
