What are cookies?

Cookies are small strings of text that a website can send to a user's device while they surf (whether they are using a desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet; they are normally saved directly by the browser used when surfing). The same website that sent them can then read and record the cookies found on the device to obtain various kinds of information.

What types of cookies exist?

There are various types of cookies, with different characteristics.

First, cookies can be classified as:

  • session cookies, which are deleted as soon as the browser (such as Internet Explorer, Safari Google Chrome, etc.) is closed

  • persistent cookies, which, differently from session cookies, remain on the device, continuing to operate even after the browser is closed, and until a given period of time has elapsed

  • first-party cookies, meaning cookies that are generated and managed directly by the managing party for the website on which the user is browsing

  • third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the manager of the website on which the user is browsing (generally in force through a contract between the owner of the website and that third-party).

The two functional macro-categories are:

technical cookies
technical cookies are generally necessary for the correct operation of the website and for allowing browsing; without them, the browser may be unable to correctly display the pages or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is mandatory for keeping the user connected throughout their visit to a website, or for saving settings regarding the language, display, and so on. Technical cookies can be further separated into navigation cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (for example, making it possible to make a purchase or authenticate oneself to access protected areas); analytics cookies, equated with technical cookies only where used directly by the manager of the website to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website: functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate as a function of a series of selective criteria (for example, the language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to that user.
