2. About cookies
Cookies are files sent by web servers to web browsers, and stored by the web browsers.
The Italian law distinguishes between two types of cookies (http://bit.ly/1xc6RXz):
a) Technical cookies. These cookies are necessary to provide the requested service, monitoring sessions, and memorising information about websites.
b) Profiling cookies. Cookies aimed to create user profiles. They are used to send ads messages targeted for this particular user or group of people where user belongs.
Another distinction is between session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date. Some cookies might come from third parties.
In this policy they will be referred to as “third party”
