Cookies are text files with small pieces of data that can be sent by a website, while you are browsing, to your device (PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet); they are usually stored directly on the browser used for browsing. The website that sends them can then read and record the cookies that are on the same device to obtain various types of information. Which ones? For each type of cookie there is a clearly defined role.


There are two basic macro-categories, with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies. Technical cookies are generally necessary for the proper functioning of the website and to allow navigation; otherwise, you may not be able to view pages correctly or use certain services. For example, a technical cookie is needed to keep you logged in throughout your visit to a website, or to store language settings, display settings, and so on.

Examples of cookies


  • Navigation cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas).

  • Analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies only when used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.

  • Functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.

  • Profiling cookies, which are designed to profile the user and are used to send ads in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing.
