Type of cookies

Cookies can be of various types, depending on the type of data they store and how long they remain stored on the user’s device.

Session cookies, or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have longer deadlines (from a few minutes to full months) depending on the functions they perform.

Technical cookies also allow aggregate statistical analysis on the most visited pages and on users' preferences, but only anonymously, and are not used to analyze the behavior or preferences of individual users.

Profiling cookies, instead, are used to analyze the interests and browsing habits of individual users, to customize navigation and provide, for example, content, including advertising, targeted to particular interests.

Cookies can be supplied directly by the operator of the site on which you are browsing (first-party cookies) or, if the site relies on external services for special functions, by third parties (third-party cookies).
