3. Definitions, characteristics, and regulations applying to cookies
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send and store on his computer or mobile device and are then sent back to the sites in question on the next visit. Cookies allow a site to remember the user actions and preferences (like the login data, the chosen language, the font size, etc.), to ensure that they don’t need to be specified again when the user returns to the site or browses its pages. Cookies, therefore, are used for IT authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of the users who access a site. They can also contain a unique ID code which allows the user’s browsing within the site to be tracked for statistical or advertising purposes.
While browsing a site, the user can receive on his computer so-called “first-party” cookies – if directly installed by the site manager –, but also cookies of sites or web servers other than the one he is visiting (the so-called “third-party” cookies), installed on the terminal by a person other than the site manager.
There are various types of cookies, according to their characteristics and functions, that may remain stored on the user’s computer for different times. From this point of view, we distinguish: the so-called session cookies, that are automatically deleted when the browser is closed and the so-called persistent cookies, that instead remain stored on the user’s equipment until a pre-set expiry term.
Among the technical cookies, that require no express consent to be used, the Italian Data Protection Authority also includes:
i. The analytics cookies: where used directly by the operator of the site to gather information in aggregate form about the number of users and how they visit the site;
ii. The navigation or session cookies: they are required to ensure normal website browsing and use (for example by allowing the user to login to access any reserved areas);
iii. Function cookies: they 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 to the same.
The profiling cookies, instead – i.e., the cookies aimed at creating user profiles and used to send advertising messages that match the preferences shown by the user while browsing online – require prior user consent.
The Site also includes the so-called “web beacons”, i.e., tools whose purpose is generally keeping track of the user behaviour, verifying whether they accessed certain contents.
Also called “tracking pixels”, web beacons are transparent one-pixel images (1×1 images, typically a GIF file) that, when requested from the server, allow to keep track of the fact that the user is displaying the page containing it. Tracking pixels are generally installed to profile the user for commercial purposes.
