Cookies are short strings of text sent to your web browser when you first visit a site or page (whether it is a computer, a notebook, a smartphone, or a tablet; and usually they are stored in the computer’s during a user’s browsing session). The same website that placed the cookies in your computer’s memory can then read and register the cookies stored on the same device in order to collect information from the user’s computer. Which are they? There are different types of cookies.


There exist two main macro-categories of cookies, with different characteristics: technical cookies and profiling cookies.
Technical cookies are necessary for the correct functioning of a website and make navigation possible for the user; without them, the user may be unable to view the website’s pages correctly or to use some services. For example, a technical cookie allow users to keep them connected throughout the visit to a website or to save the language setting, visualization, and so on.
Technical cookies can be further divided into:
navigation cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
analytical cookies are similar to technical cookies only where used directly by the owner or operator of the website to collect information on the use of the site anonymously and to achieve a statistical analysis of page views;
functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse a website in function of a set of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
Profiling cookies are more sophisticated! They are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences the user has expressed during navigation.
Cookies can further be divided into:
session cookies, which are  erased when the user closes the browser at the end of the surfing session;
persistent cookies, which – unlike the session cookies – remain on the user’s hard drive until you erase them or they expire. They are used, for example, to recognize the device connected to the website, thus facilitating the access and login to the website.
first-party cookies are set by the primary website you are visiting and they can only be read by the owner of that site.
third-party cookies, which are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user (generally by virtue of – under an agreement between the owner of the website  and the third party).
