What Are Cookies?

Cookies are information that a server can send to your computer, smartphone or tablet, when you visit a website or social network. The same server that transmitted them can then read and record the cookies, to obtain various types of information.

What type are they and what are they for?

Cookies can be:
  • Technicians: they serve to make navigation faster and are used, for example, to save the contents of a shopping cart in an online store, to memorize the choice of language of a site or to simplify payment operations via home banking;
  • Profiling: they are used to monitor users while browsing. They record information on what you buy or might want to buy, analyzing your readings and preferences. In this way they offer information to personalize the advertising sent to you based on your tastes, choices, preferences and lifestyles. Have you ever searched for information on your next trip destination on Google, only to find promotional offers on that destination on Facebook? Now, that's a proliferation cookie.
  • Third party: it may happen that on a web page there are cookies from other sites, which are contained in other elements (such as the Facebook share button, or a YouTube video integrated into a web page). Thus the cookies you download can be read by other parties and used for profiling.
On this site I use technical and third-party cookies, and no type of profiling cookies.
