Cookies are small text files containing the data of your navigation which websites memorise during navigation in order to improve it.

While you are visiting a website, it sends cookies to the device you are using (PC, notebook, tablet or smartphone). These are generally stored on the browser you use to navigate the web.

  1. TECHNICAL COOKIES. These are needed to ensure the website runs properly, and are essential for navigation. In the absence of technical cookies, you might not be able to view the pages properly, or you might not be able to use certain services. A technical cookie is, for example, vital for keeping the user connected throughout the entire visit to a website, or for memorising language settings, how the website is displayed, etc. Technical cookies can be further divided into: navigation cookies, analytical cookies and functional cookies.
    • Navigation cookies ensure the website can be visited and used properly (for example, they make it possible to make a purchase or to authenticate the user in order to access reserved areas of the website);

    • Functional cookies allow the user to navigate using a series of selected criteria (for example language, products selected for purchase etc.), in order to improve the service the user receives.
  1. PROFILING COOKIES. These cookies have the task of profiling the user. They are used to send out advertising messages that match the preferences displayed by the user during navigation.
  2. THIRD-PARTY COOKIES. These are generated and managed by parties other than the administrator of the website the user is consulting (generally speaking by virtue of a contract between the owner of the website and the third party).

All the cookies can also be catalogued in keeping with the following categories:
session cookies are cancelled when the navigation browser is closed;
persistent cookies remain in the browser for a given length of time. These cookies are used, by way of example, to identify the device connecting to the website, making user authentication easier.
