Technical Cookies Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (cf. Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access reserved areas); analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate based on a series of selected criteria (such as language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to them.
Profiling Cookies They are aimed at creating profiles related to the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the internet.
Navigation and Session Cookies Navigation and session cookies ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to view content on the device by recognizing the language of the country from which the user connects, or to make purchases through e-commerce systems). Navigation cookies are technical cookies and are therefore necessary for the functioning of the site, improving its quality and user experience.
Profiling Cookies They are aimed at understanding the preferences of individual users in such a way as to propose to them, during navigation, targeted content of interest to them, based on their previous navigations.
