What kind of cookies are used?
Two types of cookies may be used on websites: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’.
- session cookies: these are temporary cookies that remain on your device only for as long as you are connected to that site.
- persistent cookies: these cookies remain on your device for much longer, or until you delete them manually (how long a cookie stays on your device depends on its ‘life span’, and on your browser settings).
Some of the pages you visit may also collect information using ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘clear gifs’), which may be shared with third parties and which directly help marketing and website development activities. For example, the information on website use by site visitors may be shared with advertising agencies to optimally target banner ads on websites.
Another Cookie categorization – as indicated by the Guarantor for personal-data protection – is among technical cookies, profiling cookies, first-party cookies, and third-party cookies.
- Technical cookies: these cookies are used for browsing or to provide a service requested by users. They are not used for other purposes, and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without using these cookies, some operations cannot be completed, or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking (account-balance display, account transfers, bills payment, etc.) for which these cookies are indispensable for allowing users to be identified, and remain so, during the session.
- Profiling cookies: these cookies track users’ browsing, and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc. They allow to send to users’ devices advertising messages that match preferences previously expressed by the users while browsing online.
- First-part cookies, which are generated and managed directly by the managers of the browsed websites.
- Third-part cookies, which are generated and managed by subjects other than those who manage the browsed websites (depending, usually, on a contract between the website owners and third parties)
