What are cookies?

They are called "first party" if set directly from the visited site.

"Third party" cookies are set up by a website other than the one the user is visiting. This is so because on any site elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages from other domains, etc.) may be present that reside on servers different from that of the visited site.


What are cookies used for?

What are "technical" cookies?

These are cookies used to navigate or provide a user-requested service. They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner.

They can be subdivided into:

- navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and website use (for making purchases or authentication to access restricted areas)

- cookie analytics (similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information), in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the site;

- feature 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 them.
