The Garante per la protezione dei dati personali divides cookies into various categories, depending on how they are used and who sets them.
These are cookies that serve to carry out navigation or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for any other purpose and are usually installed directly by the website owner.
To quote the data protection guarantor
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service”
These are the cookies used to track the user’s navigation on the network and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc.. These cookies allow you to offer ads related to the user and their interests.
Again, quoting the Guarantor:
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same as part of web browsing. Due to the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, European and Italian legislation provides that the user must be adequately informed about the use of the same and thus express their valid consent.
Cookies can also be classified into proprietary cookies and third-party cookies depending on who sets them.
Proprietary cookies are set by the domain of the site indicated in the address bar
Third part cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. For example, the website may use an outside analytics company that sets its own cookie to perform this service. The site you are visiting may also contain embedded content, for example YouTube or Flickr, and these sites may create their own cookies.
