What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same websites on the next visit. So-called “Third Party” cookies are, on the other hand, set by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is done because there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the website visited. Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information about specific configurations regarding the users who access this server, storing preferences, etc.
Session or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have longer deadlines (from a few minutes to full months) depending on the functions they perform. These functions divide the cookies into two categories: technical and non-technical (or profiling).
These are cookies that are used to browse or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as, for example, home banking (account statement display, bank transfers, bill payments, etc.), for the which cookies, which allow you to make and keep the user’s identification within the session, are essential.
Non-technical (profiling) cookies
These are cookies used to track the user’s internet browsing and create profiles based on the users tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies advertising messages can be transmitted to the user’s terminal in line with the preferences already shown by the same while browsing online. Cookies can be delivered directly by the operator of the website that the user is browsing (first-party cookies) or, if the site supports external services for particular functions, by third parties (third-party cookies).
Are analytics cookies considered “technical” cookies?
No. The Data Protection Supervisor (see the provision dated 8 May 2014) has specified that they can be assimilated to technical cookies only if used for the purpose of optimising the website directly by the owner of the website itself, who can collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and on how they visit the site. The same rules provided for technical cookies apply to analytics cookies in terms of information and consent.
