A. What are cookies, and what are they used for?

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send directly to your computer terminal (usually to a browser) where they are recorded before being relayed back to the sites upon the user’s next visit ( first-party cookie ). While navigating our site, the user may also receive cookies from other sites or web servers (“ third-party cookies ”); this happens because elements like images, maps, sounds, links to other domains housed on servers other than the one on which the requested page is housed, may be present on the site You visit. In other words, these are cookies that are set by a site other than the one You are presently visiting.

Cookies may be limited to a single navigation session using a given browser (“session cookies ”), in which case they disable automatically as soon as the user closes the browser. On the other hand, they may have a predetermined expiration: in such cases, they remain active and stored on your hard disk until such expiration date, where they continue to gather information over the course of different browser navigation sessions (“ permanent cookies ”).

Cookies perform different functions. Some are needed to allow You to navigate the Site and use its functions (“technical or strictly necessary cookies ”). Others are used to glean statistical information, whether in an aggregate form or otherwise, on the number of users who access the Site, and on how the site is used (“performance cookies ” a/k/a “ functional ”). Others are used to create a consumer profile for you, and tailor site ads to your interests, meaning align them to your tastes and purchasing habits (“targeting cookies ”).
