What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the websites you visit send and store on your personal computer or other devices, including your mobile devices, which transmit information to those sites when you visit them again. Cookies are used for different purposes: for example, to store the user’s activities and preferences (such as, for example, login details, language preferences, font size and other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be specified again when the user visits that website again or navigates from one page to another; or to perform computer authentications, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a website and may also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking of the user’s browsing history on the website for statistical or advertising purposes.
There are different types of cookies, which can be distinguished by their characteristics and functions:
Navigation or session cookies
These cookies are not permanently stored on the user’s device and are deleted when the browser is closed. Unlike other cookies, session cookies do not have an expiration date, and because of this, the browser is able to identify them as session cookies.
Technical cookies are used only to the extent necessary to provide a service expressly requested by the user. In other words, these cookies are useful for browsing and for facilitating the user’s access and use of the website. Technical cookies are essential, for example, to access your profile or the shopping cart section of an e-commerce website without having to log in to all sessions. They are also involved in basic transactions such as payment by credit card or by other systems.
These cookies are used to collect aggregated information about the number of users of the website and the number of pages viewed (e.g. Google Analytics). Please refer to the relevant policies, which may change periodically and therefore should be consulted from time to time, which provide more detailed information, for example https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
Third-party cookies belong to domains other than the domain displayed in the address bar. These types of cookies generally appear when web pages have content, such as banner ads, from external websites that use tracking to monitor user preferences in order to display relevant and personalized ads for each user.
