Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send to the computer and to any device used for navigation (e.g. smartphones and tablets) where they are stored and then retransmitted on the next visit of the same user.
Cookies can be stored permanently and have a variable duration (so-called persistent cookies), but they can also vanish with the closure of the browser or have a limited duration (so-called session cookies).
In the same way, cookies can be installed by the site you are visiting (so-called first-party cookies), but also by other websites (so-called third-party cookies) and are used to perform computer authentication, monitoring sessions and storing information regarding the activities of users accessing a certain site.
Through cookies it is possible to collect information related to the user who visits a website (e.g. date and time, web pages visited, time spent on the portal, etc.), some of which may fall within the definition of personal data and therefore be subject to specific legal rules.
