“Technical” cookies are used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service” (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). They are normally installed directly by the website owner or operator and are divided into:
- Browsing or session cookies required for normal browsing and use of the website (such as to make a purchase or to logon to reserved areas);
- Analytics cookies used by the website operator to collect aggregate information on the number of users and on how they visit the website;
- Functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a number of selected criteria (e.g. language, the product selected for purchase) in order to improve the browsing experience on our websites; these cookies are essentially persistent.
For these types of cookie, specified in the tables contained in the chapter “Lists of technical cookies”, the user’s prior consent is not required.
