c. Cookies

Definitions, characteristics, and application of standards

Cookies are small text files that may be sent to and registered on your computer or your mobile device by the websites you visit, to then be re-sent to those same sites when you visit them again. It is thanks to these cookies that those websites can “remember” your actions and preferences (e.g., login data, language, font size, other display settings, etc.), so that you do not need to configure them again when you next visit the website, or when you change pages within a website. Cookies are used for electronic authentication, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding your activities when accessing a website. They may also contain a unique ID code which allows tracking of your browsing activities within a website, for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations within a website may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies which, in certain cases, are technically necessary for operation of the website. When browsing a website, you may also receive cookies from websites or web servers other than the website being visited (i.e., “third-party cookies”).

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, which may be stored on your computer for different periods of time: “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and “persistent cookies”, which will remain on your device until their pre-set expiration period passes.

Under Italian law, your express consent is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e., cookies used exclusively to transmit messages over an electronic communications network, or otherwise strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by you – do not require your consent. In other words, cookies which are indispensable for the operation of the Website or required to perform activities you request may be used without your consent.

The Italian Data Protection Authority (as defined in its “Determination of simplified procedures for information and collection of consent for the use of cookies”, 8 May 2014, and subsequent clarifications), has established that, among cookies which can be used without consent, the following are included:

  • Analytics cookies, when used directly by a website operator to collect information, in an aggregate form, on the number of users and how they use a website, or provided by third parties in an anonymised form by reducing their identification function and by entering into an agreement between the website operator and the third party in which such third party undertakes not to combine the information collected through the provision of the service with other data available to the same third party;
  • Browsing or session cookies, to identify and authenticate users of a website;
  • Function cookies, which allow users to browse a website according to a series of selected criteria (e.g., a certain language, products selected for purchase, etc.), in order to improve the services provided to those users.


On the other hand, “profiling cookies” – i.e., cookies used to create profiles on users and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences revealed by users while browsing websites – require users’ prior consent. The Website does not use this type of cookies.
