A. What are cookies and what are they used for
Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send directly to its terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user (c.d. first-party cookies). During the navigation, on his/her terminal the user can also receive the cookies of different sites or web servers (c.d. third-party cookies); this happens because the visited website can be present through elements like: the images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on other servers than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, those cookies are set by other websites outside of the one that you are currently visiting.
Cookies can be limited to a single browsing session (so-called session cookies). In this case, they are automatically deactivated when the browser is closed by the user. They can also have a predetermined deadline and will remain stored and active on your hard disk until they will expire, but they will continue to collect the information during different browsing sessions (c.d. permanent cookies).
Cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to allow site browsing and to take advantage of its features (so called technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, in aggregate or singular form, based on the number of user’s site access and site’s use (c.d. tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to track the consumer profile and show you advertisements on the Site that may be of your interest, as they are in line with your tastes and consumption habits (c.d. profiling cookies).
