Cookies are small code strings that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually to the browser: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.), where they are stored before being re-transmitted at each occurrence or later. access by the same user.
Cookies are classified into different types: in relation to duration, the cookie can be session, ie automatically deleted when the browser is closed, or persistent, ie active until its expiration date or its cancellation by the user; in relation to the origin, the cookie can be first-party, i.e. sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting, or third-party, i.e. sent to the browser from other sites and not from the site you are visiting. In relation to the purposes, the cookie can be technical or profiling. This classification, for clarity and importance, deserves a more in-depth analysis.
The technical cookie allows you to improve the user’s browsing experience. In fact, without the use of technical cookies some operations would be very complex or impossible to perform. These cookies – which may be first or third party, session or permanent – do not require the prior consent of the user for the purpose of their installation.
Technical cookies are “strictly necessary” when they allow you to effectively navigate the website and take advantage of its essential features, such as allowing you to perform computer authentication or the storage of previous actions. By blocking the use of these cookies, the user’s browsing experience could be compromised.
Instead, technical cookies are “functional” when they allow you to improve the browsing experience by storing the preferences expressed by the user, such as language, name, place. By blocking these cookies the browsing experience will not be compromised, however the user will not be able to take advantage of these useful services.
Technical cookies are “analytical” when they allow you to collect information on how users interact with the site, analyzing the number of pages visited, the time spent on the website, the most visited pages and any other event that emerged during navigation, as any errors coming from the visited page. These cookies allow the website owner to obtain statistical data relating to navigation and allow the services offered to the user to be improved. Analytical cookies are of a technical nature – not profiling – only when the site owner has adopted suitable tools to reduce the identifying power of the analytical cookies used, by masking significant portions of the IP address.
For the installation of technical cookies it is not necessary to collect the prior consent from the user, therefore – if the website uses only technical cookies – the data controller is not required to collect consent through the cookie banner. The extended information (the one the user is reading right now) is instead mandatory.
Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are activated only following the release of the user’s consent. The consent is released by clicking “OK” (or “continue”, etc.) on the banner on the homepage or on another page of the same site. Profiling cookies are used to improve the services offered as well as to select and send advertising based on the preferences and tastes expressed by the user while browsing. The use of profiling cookies to send targeted advertising does not imply the display of multiple advertisements nor will the browsing experience be hindered. In fact, with the deactivation of profiling cookies, the user will see – instead of advertising in line with his interests – only generic advertising.
Third-party statistical – analytical cookies are profiling cookies without IP masking and without data crossing. Finally, advertising, advertising, tracking or conversion cookies are profiling.
Except for the user’s prior consent in the case of installation of profiling cookies, most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. By changing the settings of your browser, cookies can be limited or blocked. To manage cookies, refer to the instruction manual or the instructions provided by your browser by following the following paths (relating to the most common browsers):
If the user uses multiple browsers, the procedure for deleting cookies must be carried out for each of them. If the user uses different devices (such as smartphones or tablets), to uninstall the cookies, it is necessary to refer to the instruction manual of their device. It should be noted that if you choose to block the receipt of cookies, this could compromise or prevent the proper functioning of the website as some cookies are strictly necessary for navigation.
