What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text strings (letters and/or numbers) which allow the web server to record on the client (browser) information to retrieve during the same visit on the website (session cookies) or later, also after days (permanent cookies). Cookies are recorded, based on user preferences, by the browser on the device used by the user (computer, tablet, smartphone). Similar technologies, as, for example, web beacon, transparent GIFs and any form of local storage introduced with HTML5, are usable to collect information on users’ behavior and on the use of services. Hereinafter we will refer to cookies and to all similar technologies simply using the word “cookie”.
Cookies are used for several purposes, they have several characteristics and they can be used both by the owner of the website that the user is visiting and by third parties.
Cookies can be divided into:
session or permanent cookies;
technical or profiling cookies;
first-party or third-party cookies.
1.2 Types of cookies
Session or permanent cookies. Cookies can expire at the end of the session of the browser (the period between the opening of a browser window and its closing) or they can be recorded for a longer period. Session cookies allow websites to link user’s actions during a browser session. Session cookies expire when you end a browser session. Permanent cookies are recorded on the user’s device between browser sessions, for a variable period of time, and they allow to record user preferences or actions relating to a specific website.
Technical cookies. These cookies are critical to the correct functioning of the website. Cookies duration is strictly limited to the working session (after you close the browser, cookies are delated). For the installation of these cookies, the consent of users is not required if they are used directly by the owner of the site.
First-party and third-party cookies

First-party cookies are essentially cookies set and managed by the website owner. For this type of cookies, the owner has the obligation to inform users, to collect the consent and/or to block cookies, if needed.
Third-party cookies are set by a domain which is different from the one visited by the user. For these cookies, the third party has the obligation to inform and indicate the modalities for the consent and/or the block. In this case, the website owner has only the obligation to insert, in the website, the link to the third party where these elements are available. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is regulated by the relative information we invite you to take into consideration.
Their use into users’ terminals is forbidden if users have not been properly informed and if they have not given a valid consent according to the opt-in technique
This type of cookies can in turn be grouped based on the function they perform:
Analitycs: cookies used to collect and analyze statistical information on website accesses or visits. In some cases, if they are associated with other information as credentials for the access in the customer area (personal email address and password), they can be used to profile the user (personal habits, visited websites, downloaded contents, types of interactions, etc.)
Widgets: all those graphical components of a user interface aimed at making the user interaction with the program easier. For example, facebook, google+, twitter cookies are widgets.
Advertsing: cookies used for advertising purposes into a website. Google, Tradedoubler belong to this category.
