4. Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files sent to the user’s terminal equipment (usually to the user’s browser) by the websites the user visits; they are stored in the user´s terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the websites on the user’s subsequent visits.

Types of cookies

In general, there are three different ways to classify cookies: their provenance, how long they endure, what purpose they serve.

First party and third party cookies

Unlike first-party cookies, which are put on your device directly by the website you are visiting, third-party cookies are placed on your device by a third party (like an advertiser or an analytic system).

Permanent and session cookies

Session cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends).

Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive until you erase them or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. All persistent cookies have an expiration date written into their code, but their duration can vary.

Technical, analytical and profiling cookies

Depending on the purpose, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies are stored for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network or as strictly necessary for the supplier of an information society service explicitly requested by subscriber or user to provide the service” (see Art. 122, paragraph 1 of Privacy Code).

They are essential for you to browse the websites and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of sites (so-called “essential” or “strictly necessary”). They allow a user to navigate back and forth between pages without losing their previous actions from the same session. Cookies that allow web shops to hold your items in your cart while you are shopping online are an example of strictly necessary cookies. These cookies will generally be first-party session cookies.

This category includes also “references cookies” (also known as “functionality cookies”), which allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer, what region you would like weather reports for, or what your username and password are so that you can automatically log in.

Statistics” or “analytical cookies (also known as “performance cookies”) collect information about how you use a website, which pages you visited and which links you clicked on in order to improve website functions.

Pursuant to the art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code, technical cookies do not require consent, but it should be explained to the user what they do and why they are necessary or useful.

Pursuant the Decision, analytical cookies are equivalent to technical cookies (and, therefore, users’ consent is not required) if:

  1. are stored directly exclusively by the owner of the visited website with the purpose to collect aggregated information on the number of users and how they visit the website, or
  2. created and made available by third parties if:
  3. used by the first party for merely statistical purposes, where the ability to identify users is reduced (for example, through hiding significant portions of the IP address) and such data are processed just for make aggregate statistics in relation to a single site or a single mobile application (so there is no tracking of the navigation of the user on different applications or navigating different websites);
  4. such third parties, who provide the web measurement service, do not combine, enrich or cross-reference the data, even minimized as above, with other information available to them (e.g. customer files or statistics of visits to other sites) or transmit them to other third parties.

“Profiling” or “marketing” cookies are used to track your on line activity and behaviour for marketing purposes. They allow advertisers to create profiles of users’ preferences, habits, choices, etc. in order to deliver them targeted advertising.

These kinds of cookies can be stored on the users’ device only after they have given their consent.

Uses must be able to access the websites even if they refuse to allow the use of profiling cookies.

Technical cookies
