What are Cookies
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminal (PC, tablet, smartphone, notebook), where they are stored ready to beretransmitted to the same websites when the user visits the site again. There are different types of cookies that contain various types of information (e.g. authentication of computer information, monitoring of sessions, saving of preferences for sending advertising messages etc.). Each cookie, in turn, contains different information (e.g. the name of the server from which it originates, a numerical identifier, etc.). These data remain on the user’s device for varying periods of time, e.g. a browser session, a few hours, several days or longer periods. They are used to perform electronic authentication, session monitoring and information storage on websites. While browsing a website, the user may also receive on his terminal cookies sent by other websites or web servers (so-called “third party”) on which certain elements may be present (e.g. images, maps, sounds, specific links to other domains) that reside on servers other thanthat of the site being visited.
