What are cookies?

In general, a cookie is a small amount of data (text file), which may contain a single anonymous ID code and which is usually sent from a web server of the website visited on the user’s terminal (computer, notebook, tablet, smartphone), to the web browsing software (browser) of the website visitor, to be subsequently re-sent to the visited website upon the subsequent visit. The cookie is then read again and identified only by the website which has sent it whenever the user visit that website. When surfing the web, users may also receive on their terminal cookies which are then sent from other websites or web servers (the so-called “third parties”), which may contain some elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) present on the website the user is visiting.

Cookies may be used for various purposes: monitoring sessions, storing information on specific settings regarding the users who access the server, carrying out authentication processes, etc.

It is possible to define and classify them in various ways. A possible distinction is between the two macro-categories of “technical” and “profiling” cookies.
