What are cookies? Cookie terminology

Cookies are pieces of information stored on your browser when you visit a website or use a social network, on your PC, smartphone or tablet.

Each cookie contains various pieces of data such as the name of the originating server, a numerical identifier and so on.

Cookies can remain on your system for the duration of a session (in other words until the browser is closed) or for long periods of time. They may contain a unique identifier.

Some cookies are used for online authentication, session monitoring and for the storage of specific information about users accessing a web page.

These are known as technical cookies and are often useful, as they make it easier and quicker to browse the web. For example, they may help to facilitate certain procedures when making online purchases, when logging into reserved areas, or when a website automatically recognises the user's customary language.

Another type of cookie, known as analytical cookies, can be used by website owners to gather aggregated information about the number of users and how they use the website, thus to elaborate general statistical data on the service and its use.

Some cookies can be used to monitor and profile users while browsing, study their movements and browsing or purchasing habits (what they buy, what they read etc.). This may be for the purposes of sending targeted, customized adverts (Behavioural Advertising). This type of cookie is a profiling cookie. 

In some cases a web page may contain cookies from other sites, and content hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banners, images and videos. In this case we refer to third party cookies.Cookies that you download on your PC, phone or tablet can also be read by other people, apart from the operators of the web pages you visit.

Opt-out refers to your choice to opt out of cookies. For our purposes it refers to the method used to deactivate cookies, or to deactivate certain types of cookies. Almost all browsers are set up to accept cookies automatically. If you want to deactivate cookies, this information is important.
