The Privacy Guarantor has implemented a directive that requires web page administrators to show visitors a banner that informs them of the cookie policy of the site they are consulting and to make its acceptance conditional on continuing navigation.

What are cookies?

Cookies are simple text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device by a website server. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, website domain name, and some digits and numbers.

Cookies, usually present in users’ browsers in very large numbers and sometimes even with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations concerning users who access the server, etc.

In order to achieve at a correct regulation of the directive, the Privacy Guarantor has identified two macro categories of cookies defined below:

  • technical cookies
  • profiling cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of certain information on an electronic communications network or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information service to provide services requested explicitly by the subscriber or user.

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or manager of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session 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 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.

For the installation of these cookies, the prior consent of the users is not required, while it is required the obligation to provide information pursuant to laws regulation.

Cookie profiling, also called web profiling, is the use of persistent or permanent cookies to track a user’s overall activity online. This tracking does not just happen when you are on a particular site, but it occurs the whole time you are browsing.

They are regulated by law where mentioned “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or user or access to information already stored is permitted only on condition that the contractor or user has given their consent after being informed with the simplified procedures”.

Subject invloved in cookie use:

The directive also distinguishes two types of subjects involved in the use of cookies on the website: the website manager (briefly referred to as the publisher) a website that installs “third party” cookies through the publisher.
