WHAT ARE COOKIES?
These are small text files sent from a website to the visitor and then sent back to the website to be read by the server, which allows specific information to be gathered about the visitor's use of a particular site (how many pages and which pages he visited, how much time he stayed on the website, the channel through which he accessed the website etc.). This information is stored on the hard disk of the computer or on any device used by the user to access the Internet.
Cookies enable the website to be used, or they facilitate its operation or specific functionality. In a nutshell, they facilitate: storage of one’s preferences (language, font size, colour, etc.), avoiding the need to input the same information several times when accessing the site (login data), management of an e-commerce shopping cart, analysis of the visitor’s use of the services and the content provided by the site, viewing of content such as videos, maps etc., content-sharing on social networks, use of advertisements customised to users for a more effective advertising campaign.
There are various types of cookies
TECHNICAL COOKIES. This type of cookie facilitates the proper functioning of certain sections of the site. They are divided into 2 categories, based on their duration:
- temporary (or session) cookies have no expiry date and are removed at the end of the session or when the browser window is closed.
- persistent cookies have a predetermined expiry date, therefore they remain on the user’s computer even after the session has ended or the browser window is closed, so they can be read by the website that has just been visited on the next visit.
These cookies are necessary in order to properly view this site, therefore they will always be used and sent unless the user changes his browser settings (thus potentially blocking certain functionality and affecting how the web page will display).
ANALYTICAL COOKIES. Such cookies are used to collect information in an aggregated and anonymous form on the visitor’s use of the website, in order to improve the use and content thereof. These cookies are considered to be technical cookies if they are installed by the website operator and not by a third party.
If analytical cookies are installed on the user's terminal by a website other than the one the user is visiting, these are THIRD PARTY COOKIES, an example is GOOGLE ANALYTICS.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES refer to analytical cookies but also to those used to operate software such as social network sharing buttons inserted into a website, or other software such as the implementation of videos or maps.
PROFILING COOKIES. Those cookies are required to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages based on the user’s preferences as shown within the pages of the website.
