1. Information on cookies

Cookies are small files, generally comprising letters and numbers, which are stored on a device when the user accesses certain Websites. Cookies enable a given Website to identify the user’s device, track their surfing through the various pages of the Website, and identify those users who visit a given website again. Cookies do not contain information that personally identifies users, but the personal data we store in relation to a user may be connected by us to the information stored in the cookies and obtained through them.

For further information, please visit:

1.a) Session and persistent cookies

Cookies may expire at the end of a browser session (the period lapsing from the opening to the closing of a browser’s window by the user) or they may be stored for a longer time.

  • Session cookies – they enable Websites to connect the actions of a user during a browser’s session. Session cookies expire when the browser’s session ends and therefore they are not stored for a long time.  For this reason, session cookies may be considered less invasive than persistent cookies as far as privacy is concerned.
  • Persistent cookies – they are stored on a user’s device between browser sessions and enable a given website or, in some cases, several Websites to remember the user’s preferences or actions.

1.b) First-party cookies and third-party cookies

A cookie is defined as “first-party” or “third-party” depending on the Website or domain from which it comes.

  • First-party cookies are, basically, cookies set by the Website visited by the user, that is, the Website displayed in the URL bar.
  • Third-party cookies are those cookies set by a domain other than that visited by the user. We have a third party-cookie when a user visits a given Website and a third-party company sets a cookie through that Website.
