Cookies are small text strings that sites visited by the user send to the user’s display device, usually the browser, where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit by the same user.
In the course of browsing a site, the user may also receive on his or her device cookies sent by different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which certain elements, such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains, may reside on the site the same is visiting. Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in large numbers and sometimes also with characteristics of wide temporal persistence are used for different purposes such as performing computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information about specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, etc.
Types of cookies
Cookies are divided into two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole 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 such service” (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
They are not used for any further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website 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. “Flash Cookies” (Local Shared Objects), used within Adobe Flash Player to deliver certain content, such as video clips or animations, in order to remember settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the device, but are managed through a different interface than the one provided by the browser being used.
The Adobe website https://www.adobe.com/devnet/security.html provides information on how to remove or disable Flash cookies related to a specific domain.
The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of users, while the obligation to give information pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of the European Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27/04/2016 remains in place, which the operator of the site, if it uses only such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate.
Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles related to the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices can have within the private sphere of users, the European and Italian regulations provide that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express their valid consent. In particular, pursuant to art. 13 and 22 of the European Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27/04/2016, we inform the interested party that there are no consequences due to the processing carried out with profiling cookies.
