What are cookies
Cookies are small text strings that the site visited by the user sends to his terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same site, at the next visit by the same user. During navigation, the user can also receive cookies on his terminal that are sent from different websites or web servers (so-called “third parties”), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds , specific links to pages from other domains) on the site the user is visiting. Cookies, present in users’ browsers often in very large numbers and sometimes even with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, are used for different purposes: execution of IT authentications, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server.
