How many types of cookies are there? 

There are two basic macro-categories , with different features: cookie technical and cookie profiling The cookie technicians are generally required for the proper functioning of the website and to allow navigation; without them you may not be able to view the pages correctly or use some services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected throughout the visit to a website, or to memorize the language settings, the display, and so on.

The cookie technicians 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);
  • analytics cookies , similar to technical cookies only when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
  • functionality cookies , which allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.

The cookie profiling is more sophisticated! These cookies have the task of profiling the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing.

The cookies can still be classified as:

  • session cookies , which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed;
  • persistent cookies , which – unlike session cookies – remain in the browser for a certain period of time. They are used, for example, to recognize the device that connects to the site, facilitating authentication operations for the user.

  • third-party cookies ( third-part cookies ) , which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the website owner and Part Three).
