1. General information about cookies 

Cookies are information placed on your browser when you visit a website or use a social network with your computer, smartphone or tablet. Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server from which it came, a numeric identifier, etc.. Cookies may remain in the system for the duration of a session (i.e. until you close the browser used for web browsing) or for long periods and may contain a unique identification code.

Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, track sessions and store specific information about users accessing a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful because they can make browsing and using the web quicker and easier, for example because they facilitate certain procedures when you shop online, when you log in to restricted areas or when a website automatically recognizes the language you use. A particular type of cookie, called analytics, is then used by website operators to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and on how they visit the site, and then draw up general statistics on the service and its use.

Other cookies may be used to monitor and profile users while they are browsing, to study their movements and browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), also for the purpose of sending advertising of targeted and personalized services (so-called Behavioural Advertising).

In this case, we are talking about profiling cookies.

For example: Have you ever visited a service site, used your webmail or accessed your page on a social network and found advertising banners related to your latest web searches or the latest purchase made on the Internet? This happens because those web spaces are designed to recognize your computer or other terminal you use to connect to the web (smartphones, tablets), and possibly direct promotional messages "profiled" based on your research and your use of the Internet.

It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and content in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banners, images, videos, etc. ... We speak, in these cases, so called third-party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. Thus, the cookies you download to your PC, smartphone and tablet can also be read by other subjects, other than those who manage the web pages you visit.
