What is a cookie? A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your computer when a website is visited by a user. The text stores information that the site is able to read at a later time. Some of these cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site, others are useful to the visitor because they can safely store such as the user name or language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed on your computer is that you no longer need to fill in the same information whenever you want to access a site you have previously visited.

What types of cookies exist

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “to transmit a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide that service” (cf. art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site; functionality cookies, that allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same. For the installation of such cookies is not required prior consent of users, while it remains without prejudice to the obligation to give the information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, which the operator of the site, if you use only such devices, can provide in the manner that it deems most appropriate.

Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are aimed at creating user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have within the privacy of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express their valid consent. They refer to art. 122 of the Code where it provides that “The storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or user or access to information already stored is only permitted if the contractor or user has given his or her consent after being informed in a manner simplified procedures referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3” (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

Publishers and third parties

Another element to be considered, for the purposes of the correct definition of the subject under consideration, is the subjective one. It is necessary, that is, to take into account the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site that the user is visiting (which can be summarized as “publisher”) or a different site that installs cookies through the first (c.d. “third parties”)
