What are cookies?
Cookies are information entered on your browser when you visit a website or use a social networkwith your PC, smartphone or tablet . Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server it comes from, a numerical identifier, etc.
Cookies may remain in the system for the duration of a session (ie until you close the browser used for web browsing) or for long periods and may contain a unique identification code.
What are cookies for?
Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing specific information about users accessing a web page. These cookies , so-called technical , are often useful, because they can make faster and faster browsing and use of the web , because they intervene to facilitate some procedures when you shop online , when you authenticate to restricted access areas or when a website automatically recognizes the language you usually use.
A particular type of cookie , called analytics , are then used by the managers of the websites to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site, and then develop general statistics on the service and its use.
Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, to study their movements and habits of web browsing or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted services and personalized ( so-called Behavioral Advertising ). In this case we speak about profiling cookies .
It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as banner ads, images, videos, etc. We speak, in these cases, so-called third-party cookies , which they are usually used for profiling purposes.
So the cookies you download on your PC, smartphone and tablet can also be read by other subjects, other than those who manage the web pages you visit.
By visiting a website you can receive cookies from both the visited site (first part) and from sites managed by other organizations (third parties). Notable examples are the presence of “embed” video or “social plugin” from social network services. These are parts of the page visited generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by third parties is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made.
