DEFINITIONS, CHARACTERISTICS, AND ENFORCEMENT
Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send and record on the user’s computer or mobile device, only to be transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit.
Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows tracking of the user’s navigation within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes.
In the course of browsing a site, you may also receive on your computer or mobile device cookies from sites or web servers other than the one you are visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies).
There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiration date.
In particular, “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require such consent.
These are, in other words, cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.
Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (see Provvedimento Individuazione delle modalità semplificate per l’informativa e l’acquisizione del consenso per l’uso dei cookie of May 8, 2014, hereinafter only “Provvedimento” and “Linee guida cookies e altri strumenti di tracciamento – 10 giugno 2021”) also includes:
“analytics cookies” where used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
navigation or session cookies (to authenticate);
functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
For “profiling cookies”, vice versa, i.e., those aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing, prior user consent is required.
HOW TO MANAGE YOUR COOKIE PREFERENCES VIA BROWSER AS WELL
We inform in this regard that Google (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245) fprovides visitors, who do not want their browsing information to be sent to Google Analytics, the possibility to install an “opt-out browser add-on” available for most modern browsers (you can see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout).
