TYPES OF COOKIES
Based on their characteristics and functions, cookies are classified in different categories:
- Technical Cookies. Technical cookies are used exclusively for "transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network or, only as strictly necessary to the supplier of a service of the company, the information explicitly requested of the subscriber or of the user to provide such a service" (see article 122, clause 1 of the Code). They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the web site.
They can be divided into navigation or session cookies that guarantee normal navigation and enjoyment of a web site; analytical cookies, assimilated to technical cookies if used directly by the site manager to collect information in aggregate form about the number of visitors and how they visit the site itself; functionality cookies, that allow the user to personalise navigation by setting a series of selected criteria to improve the service provided to the user.
No authorisation is required prior to placing these types of cookies, although notice of their use must be communicated pursuant to article 13 of the Code. If the site manager makes use only of these types of cookie, the form of such notice will be at the discretion of the web site manager.
- Profiling Cookies. Profiling cookies are those configured to create a user profile for sending advertising messages aligned with the preferences expressed by the user during web navigation.
This website makes no use of profiling cookies.
