What are cookies?
Cookies are pieces of information sent to your browser by a web server and which are then stored on your computer's hard drive when a user visits a website or uses a social network with a PC, Smartphone or Tablet. The cookie is then re-read and recognized by the website that sent it each time you make a subsequent connection. Cookies make it possible to create statistics on the areas of the website visited by users in an anonymous way. The data collected is then read in aggregate form to understand the efficiency of the site and the level of browsing experience.
The cookies used therefore do not contain any personal information about users. Cookies can be stored permanently on your computer and have a variable duration (so-called persistent cookies), but can also disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (so-called session cookies). Cookies can be installed by the website you are visiting (so-called first party cookies) or they can be installed by other websites (so-called third party cookies).
Cookies are used in some cases to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information about users accessing a web page.
What are cookies used for?

These cookies are used to monitor and profile users during navigation, studying their movements/habits when consulting the web. They are also used for targeted advertising purposes (c.d. Behavioural Advertisign).
In some cases it happens that a web page contains cookies from other sites and contained in various elements hosted on the page itself (banner ads, images, videos, etc.). Third-party cookies are often used for profiling purposes. Cookies downloaded on PCs, smartphones and tablets can also be read by others than those who manage web pages.
