1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send to and store on your computer or mobile device, before being sent back to the same websites at the next visit. Precisely thanks to the cookies, the website remembers the actions and preferences of the user (such as, for example, login data, the chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not need to be entered again when the user visits the website again or browses from one page to another on it. The cookies are therefore used for IT authentications, session monitoring and the saving of information regarding the activities of users accessing a website. They may also contain a unique identifier code that can keep track of the user’s browsing within the website for statistical purposes. When browsing a website, the user can also receive cookies from different web servers or websites to that being visited (“third party cookies”) on their computer or mobile device. Some operations could not be carried out without using cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the website’s actual function.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and they can stay on the user’s computer or mobile device for different lengths of time: session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; and persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a pre-established deadline.

In accordance with current legislation, use of cookies does not always require express user consent. More specifically, “technical cookies” do not require consent, i.e. those used only in order to transmit a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service specifically requested by the user. In other words, these are cookies that are essential to website function or necessary to provide the activities requested by the user. For “analytics cookies”, on the other hand, i.e. those aimed at collecting user’s data for statistical purposes, prior user consent is required.
