- 1. What are cookies?
Cookies are pieces of information that can be stored on the computer while browsing a website, for processing and identifying data.
The cookie file is usually extremely small and does not contribute to the saturation of the physical space of the hard disk. A cookie is transferred to the player’s disk for registration, to “store” which areas of the website have been visited. This option saves time, allowing customers/visitors to reach more quickly the main parts of a previously visited website.

a) Technical cookies: those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary, to the provider of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide said service”. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed by the owner or operator of the website. Within the definition of technical cookies, the legislator and the Guarantor Authority distinguish between various cases.

b) Profiling Cookies aimed at creating user profiles and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the same while browsing the Internet. In view of the considerable invasiveness that such devices may have in the users' private sphere, the European and Italian legislation requires the user to be properly informed on their use and thus express their valid consent. With the abovementioned general provision, the Authority Guarantor for the protection of personal data has regulated the “third party” cookies which derive from other domains and which have items, such as ads or images, embedded on the page.
