What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files, which the websites browsed by the visitors send to their devices (usually to the browser) where they are memorized in order to be retransmitted to those websites at the following access of the visitors.
While browsing a website, the visitor may also receive on its device cookies pertaining to other websites or webservers (so-called cookies of “third parties”). The reason is the presence on the visited website of contents (for instance, pictures, maps, sounds or specific links to pages of other domains), which have been uploaded on servers different from the server where the page requested is. In other words, these are cookies which have been set up from a website different from the one visited.
Cookies are utilized to execute authentication procedures, to monitor a browse session and to memorize specific information relating to the visitors, which access the websites and the operations of the websites.
Certain procedures may not be executed without the utilization of cookies, which in some cases are technically needed. Other procedures could be more complex to execute and less safe for the visitor without cookies, which allow to identify the visitor and to keep the visitor identified during a session.
Cookies may remain memorized in the devices for long and may contain a unique identification code. This allows tracking the browsing of the visitors inside a website for statistic or advertisement purposes (for instance, in order to create a personalized profile of the visitor starting from the pages visited and to display to such visitors targeted advertisement).
