Foreword: What are cookies and what are they used for?
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored to be re-transmitted to said websites.
Cookies of so-called "third parties", on the other hand, are set by a website other than the one the User is visiting. This is because on each website there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers other than that of the website visited.
Cookies are used for various purposes: performing computer authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, storing preferences, etc.
We can mainly divide them into two macro categories: “technical cookies” or “profiling cookies”. Technical cookies are used to enable browsing on the website and provide the services the User has asked for. They are not used for additional purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without recourse to these cookies, it would not be possible to perform certain operations on certain websites or these would be more complex.
Profiling cookies are used to track User browsing on the Internet and to create profiles about his tastes, habits, choices, etc. These cookies can be used to transmit advertising messages to the user’s terminal, in line with the preferences already expressed by the same when browsing online.
