1. Definitions, types and application of the legislation

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and record on their computer or mobile device, to then be re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit. Thanks to cookies, a site remembers the actions and user preferences (such as, for example, login data, chosen language, font size, others display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to visit that site or browse from one page to another. Cookies, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of a user when accessing a site. They can also contain a code unique identifier that allows you to track user browsing within the site itself for purposes such as statistics or advertising. Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in certain cases they are therefore technically necessary for the site to function itself. For more information on cookies and their general functions, the User can visit the informative website such as www.allaboutcookies.org.
Cookies can be those set directly by the site or web server that the user is visiting or those of the website whose address has been typed in by the user and displayed in the URL window (so-called “first party” cookies). While browsing a site, the user can also receive site or web server cookies on their device other than the one you are visiting (so-called “third party” cookies). We speak of a third-party cookie in reference to cases in which you visit a website and a third party with respect to the operator of the visited site releases a cookie through it itself, owned by third parties. There are also various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain in the user’s computer for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted at the closing the browser; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on your device until a set deadline. According to the legislation in force and applicable in Italy, consent is not always required for the use of cookies of the user. In particular, the so-called technical cookies, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, there are:

  • first-party analytical cookies, used to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
  • analytical cookies of third parties, when tools are adopted that reduce the identifying power ofcookies and the third party does not cross the information collected with others already available;
  • navigation or session cookies, used to authenticate and access a service;
  • functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

For profiling cookies, vice versa, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles referring to users and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the latter in the context of surfing the net, the prior consent of the user is required. A user consent is also required for analytical cookies of third parties when tools that reduce the identifying power of cookies are not adopted and the third party crosses information collected with others already available.
