WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHICH ONES ARE THEY?
Cookies are small lines of text that a website can send, during the navigation, to the owner’s device (be it a PC, a notebook, a smartphone, a tablet; normally they are conserved directly in the browser used for navigation). The same website who sent them can, later on, read and register cookies found on the device to obtain different kinds of information. Each cookie generally contains: the name of the server it was sent from; the due date and a value, normally a single number randomly generated by the computer. The website’s server transfers cookies using this number to recognise the User when they return to the website or navigate from one page to another. Cookies can not only be installed by the manager of the website visited by the user (first-party cookies), but also from another website that installs cookies through the first website (third-party cookies) and is able to recognise them. This can happen because there may be certain elements present (images, maps, sounds, links to pages with other domains, etc.)on the visited website that reside on different servers from that of the visited website. Generally, cookies are classified in different types based on:
- Session cookies (temporary), that are automatically cancelled when the browser is closed;
- Persistent cookies that are active until their due-date or until the user cancels them.
- First-party cookies sent to the browser directly from the website you are visiting;
- Third-party cookies sent to the browser from other websites and not the website you are visiting.
- Technical cookies
- Navigational Cookies/Indispensable/of Performance/of Process or of security contributing to the website’s functioning, such as the possibility to navigate between pages or access protected areas. If they are blocked, the website may not function correctly;
- Functionality cookies/Preferences/Localisation/of the session’s state, allowing to memorise information that modify the behaviour or looks of the website (preferred language, text size and characters, geographical area in which you are). If they are blocked, the experience is less functional but not compromised.
- Statistical cookies/analytical a) first-party or b) third-party with IP masking, without contained data’s crossing with predisposed cookies; assimilable to the technical cookie for purpose, is required to gather information and generate the website’s usage statistics to understand how users interact.
- Not Technical cookies
- Profiling cookies/publicity/advertising/of tracking or of conversions for the advertisement’s selection based on what is pertinent to the user (personalised ads). Profiling cookies are aimed at creating profiles related to the user and are used to send advertising messages pertinent to the preferences that have been manifested during their navigation online.
- Technical cookies
Generally speaking, beyond the types of cookies used by our website, we’d like to inform the users that, aside all the protections provided by the current legislation, there are options to navigate without cookies, such as:
- Blocking third-party cookies: Third-party cookies aren’t normally essential for navigating, so you can refuse them by default, through the appropriate functions of your browser.
- Activate the Do Not Track option: the Do Not Track option is present in most new generation browsers. The websites that are designed to respect this option should, when activated, automatically quit collecting some of your navigational data. As aforementioned, not all websites are set up to respect this option (discretional).
- Activate the “Incognito mode”: through this function you can navigate without leaving trace of your navigational data i your browser. Websites won’t remember you, the pages you visit won’t be memorised in your browser history, and new cookies will be erased. Incognito mode does not however allow you to be anonymous on the internet, because it only allows you to not keep navigational data in the browser, while your navigational data will still be visible to website managers and internet providers.
- Eliminate cookies directly: there are specific functions for it in all browsers. Remember however that new cookies will be downloaded with every internet connection, so the erasure operation should be done periodically. Willingly, a few browsers offer automatised systems to periodically erase cookies.
