What are cookies
Cookies are small data files that are stored on the user’s computer during navigation and perform various functions such as remembering login data to services, gathering statistical information on pages visited, identifying the browser and device used, choosing content and information targeted at the user’s preferences, etc.
The cookies vary depending upon the type of data they memorize and how long they are saved on the user’s device.
Session or temporary cookies are valid only for a single web surfing session and vanish when the browser is shut down, while persistent cookies last longer (from a few minutes to whole months) depending upon the function they perform. These functions determine whether the cookies are technical or non-technical (or profiling cookies).
Technical cookies manage the data required to allow us to provide the web pages and facilitate navigation, for example, by allowing the user to access certain services with a single login and password, remembering the last page visited or to what point a user watched a video, recognizing the type of device used so the dimensions of the images can be adapted accordingly. Technical cookies are also used to perform aggregated statistical analyses on the pages most visited and user preferences, but only in anonymous form, and are not used to analyze the behavior or preferences of individual users.
Profiling cookies are used to analyze the interests and navigation habits of individual users in order to personalize navigation and provide, for example, targeted content and advertisements.
Cookies are served directly by the administrator of the site that the user is navigating (first-party cookies), or by third parties if the site uses external services for certain functions (third-party cookies).
