Cookies and GDPR Compliance


Cookies consist of portions of code installed within the browser. They are small text files that sites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored and then transmitted back to the same sites on subsequent visits. Cookies are used for different purposes, have different peculiarities, and can be used either by the owner of the site the User is visiting or by third parties. The main categories into which Cookies can be divided are as follows:

  • Session or permanent cookies
  • Technical or profiling cookies
  • First-party or third-party cookies

Session and permanent cookies

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (the period between the User opening a browser window and closing it) or they can be retained for a longer period. Session Cookies are those that allow websites to link a user’s actions during a browser session. Session Cookies expire when the browser session ends. Persistent Cookies are stored on a user’s device between browser sessions, for varying periods, and allow a User’s preferences or actions concerning a website to be stored.

Technical and Profiling Cookies

Technical Cookies are those used by the owner of a site for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or User to provide such service. The prior consent of Users is not required for the installation of such Cookies where they are used directly by the site operator.

Profiling Cookies are aimed at creating profiles relating to the User and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of web browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that such Cookies can have within the private sphere of Users, European and Italian regulations provide that the User must be adequately informed about the use of the same, using brief information (banner) and an extended one present on the site and that he/she must express his/her express consent in this regard the first time he/she visits the site. Such consent may be expressed in a general manner, by interacting with the short information banner on the landing page of the site, in the manner indicated in that banner, or it may be given or withheld selectively, in the manner indicated below. Of this consent, a record is kept on subsequent visits. However, the User always has the option of revoking all or part of the consent already given.

First-party and third-party cookies

A Cookie is either a “first party” (so-called first party cookie) or a “third party” (so-called third party cookie) depending on the website or domain from which it originates.

First-party Cookies are, in essence, Cookies set and managed by the website owner. For these Cookies, the obligation of information, acquisition of any prior consent, and/or possible blocking of the Cookies lies with the site owner.

Third-party Cookies are Cookies set by a domain other than the one visited by the User. For these Cookies, the obligation of the information and the indication of the modalities for the eventual consent and/or blocking of the Cookies is the responsibility of the third party, while the site owner is only obliged to include on the site the link to the site of the third party where these elements are available.
