Information on Cookies

  • A "cookie" is a small text file created by some websites on the user's computer when the user accesses a particular website. The cookie is necessary to store and transport information. Cookies are sent from a web server (which is the computer on which the visited website is running) to the user's browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the user's computer; they are then re-sent to the website in occasion of subsequent visits.

This allows the websites that use them to keep track of the user's navigation within the site itself, for statistical or advertising purposes, to create a personalised user profile starting from the pages that the user has visited and show him and/or send him targeted advertising (so-called Behavioural Advertising).
