A. What are cookies and what are they used for?
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send directly to his/her terminal (usually to the browser). Such cookies are stored into the user’s terminal in order to be retransmitted to the same websites when the user accesses them again (so called first-party cookies). During the browsing on a website, the user may receive on his/her terminal also cookies of different websites or webservers (so called third-party cookies); this happens because the visited websites contain items such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other websites that are hosted on a server other than the one on which the requested page is hosted. In other words, these are those cookies that are set by a website different from the one that the user is currently visiting.
The cookies may be limited to a single browsing session (so called session cookies) and, in such case, they automatically disable when the user closes the browser. Some other cookies may have a preset expiry date and, in such case, they will remain stored and active in the user’s hard-disk until such expiry date, continuing to collect information in the course of the subsequent browsing sessions (so called permanent cookies).
Cookies are used for different purposes. Some of them are used to allow the user to visit a website and use its features (so called technical cookies). Some other cookies are used in order to collect statistical information, in aggregated or non-aggregated form, about the number of users who access a Website and how a website is used (so called monitoring or analytics cookies). Lastly, other cookies are used to track the user’s profile as a consumer and display advertising on a website which are consistent with your interests (so called, profiling cookies).
Other third third-party cookies allow the log-in through the user and password of your social networks.
