MANAGEMENT OF COOKIES
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text strings that a website visited by a user sends to the user’s terminal (usually the web browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same site at the user’s next navigation. During navigation, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are invited by different websites or web servers (“third parties”), on which a series of elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specifications can reside links to pages of other domains) present on the website that the user is browsing.
As a rule, there is a large number of users with regard to users, which may persist for a period of time and are used for differentiation: login, session monitoring concerning browsers, information on specific specific users who access the server.
Cookies differ from each other based on the purposes of those who use them. On this basis, cookies can be divided into two macro-categories: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies are used for the sole purpose of sending a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service requested by the user. They are usually installed by the publisher or website manager.
