What are cookies?
Cookies are text strings of small sizes that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal, where they are stored to then be retransmitted to the same sites at the next visit of the same user.
For the purposes here of interest, the cookies are divided in technical and profiling, depending on the function for which they are used, and in first party cookies and third-party, depending on the subject that installs them.
Technical cookies are used only for the purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service" (see art. 122 paragraph 1 of the Code of the privacy). Stand out in cookie navigation or session and serve to guarantee the normal navigation and use of the web site.
Similar to technical cookies there are also analytics cookies (because they are used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the site) and functionality cookies (allow the user the navigation function of a set of selected criteria, such as the language, in order to improve the service rendered to the same).
For the installation and use of technical cookies does not required the prior consent of the person concerned.
Taking into account the different subject, which installs cookies on the user's terminal, depending on whether the same operator of the site the user is visiting, or to a different site that installs the cookies through the first, a distinction is made between first party cookies and third-party cookies.
