WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text strings which a website may send during browsing to the device being used whether this is a PC, notebook, smartphone or tablet etc.; as a rule, cookies are stored directly on the browser used for browsing. The website which transmitted them can then read and record the cookies located on this device to obtain various kinds of information.
Cookies are used for various purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, memorising information about the specific configurations of the users who access the server etc. Further information on cookies can be found on www.allaboutcookies.org .
We are always looking for ways to improve our website and to make it easier to use our services. It is therefore important for us to understand our website is used.
HOW MANY TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are two basic macro-categories with different characteristics: technical cookies and third-party cookies. Technical cookies are generally necessary for the website to function correctly and to allow browsing; without them, the user may not be able to view the pages properly or use some of the services. For example, technical cookies are essential for keeping the user connected whilst visiting a website, or to store language or display settings.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
- browser or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and website use;
- functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the quality of service provided to the user.
- cookie analytics, integrated into technical cookies and used directly by the website manager to gather information in an aggregated form about the number of users and how these users visit the website.
Technical cookies may also be provided by third parties (“third-party cookies“) and may correspond to all the above-mentioned types managed in an anonymous and aggregated form, or in a form which allows the identification of internet website surfers, even if only occasional users.
Finally, there are profiling cookies whose job is to create user profiles and which are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user when browsing.
