Definitions, characteristics and application of legislation
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send and record on your terminal device (computers or mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets), which are then re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit.A website uses cookies to remember the user’s actions and preferences (such as login data, chosen language, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be given again when the user revisits the website or browses from one page to another. Cookies are used for computer authentication, session monitoring and to store information about users who log on to a website, and may also contain a unique identification code that enables them to track user browsing within the Site for statistical or advertising purposes.

Classification of cookies

When browsing a Site, in addition to cookies stored directly by the site visited (so-called “first-party cookies”), the user may also receive cookies on his computer from websites or web servers other than the one being visited (so-called “third-party cookies”).

Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the website to operate.

There are various types of cookies, depending on their traits and functions; these may remain on the user’s computer for different amounts of time. “session cookies”, also referred to as “browsing cookies”, are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called “permanent cookies” remain on the user’s device until a predetermined expiry date.

Then there are so-called “analytics” or “statistics” cookies, used for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness of a service provided, designing websites or measuring site “traffic”, that is the number of visitors, possibly broken down by geographic area, time slot of the connection or other characteristics.

According to legislation in force in Italy, the user’s express consent is not always required for cookies to be used. So-called “technical cookies” are used for the sole purpose of transmitting a communication over an electronic communications network, or are necessary to provide a service expressly requested by the user. These are cookies that are essential for the operation of the Site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user, in the absence of which some operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure.

Technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, according to the Italian Data Protection Authority (see Cookie guidelines and other tracking tools dated 10 June 2021 and subsequent clarifications, hereinafter “Guidelines”) also include:

analytics cookies if their use makes it impossible to directly identify (or “single out”) the data subject, thus preventing the use of analytics cookies, which may be direct and unique identifiers. Their structure moreover must provide for the possibility of referring them not to one but to several devices, in order to create reasonable uncertainty as to the online identity of the recipient (usually through the masking of portions of the IP address within the cookie itself, as indicated in the Guidelines). Finally, to be identified as technical, analytics cookies should be limited to the production of aggregate statistics only, to be used in relation to a single site/mobile application, so as not to allow the tracking of the person that uses different applications or browses different websites;

browsing or session cookies;
For so-called “profiling cookies”, on the other hand, i.e. those aimed at creating user profiles used to customise the provision of a service beyond what is strictly necessary for the basic provision of the service or to send targeted advertising messages in line with the user’s preferences as seen through web browsing and/or to analyse and monitor visitor behaviour, the user’s prior consent is required.
