What are cookies and what are they for?

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by users send to their terminals (usually to browsers), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit.

The cookies of the so-called “third parties” are, however, set by a website other than the one that the user is visiting.

This is because on each site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than the site visited.

Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, monitoring of sessions, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, storing preferences, etc.

Cookies can be divided into different macro-categories based on the purpose of use and/or the person responsible for the release of the same on users’ terminals.

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, that guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);

To them refers the art. 122 of the Privacy Code where it provides that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after having been informed with the simplified procedures referred to in Article 13 of the Privacy Code, paragraph 3 “.
