What are cookies and what are they used for
Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user / visitor send to his terminal (usually to the browser and therefore to the computer or a smartphone, tablet, smartwatch etc.) where they are stored for variable periods of time (from a few hours to a few years) according to the needs for which the cookies themselves are pre-established to then be re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user / visitor.

Session cookies: cookies that automatically expire when the browser is closed by the user / visitor

- Based on the person who installs them on the user’s / visitor’s terminal:
First-party cookies: when they are installed by the website that the user / visitor visits;
Third-party cookies: when they are installed by third parties with respect to the operator of the site that the user / visitor is visiting. In these cases, cookies can also be read by parties other than those who manage the web pages consulted by the user / visitor.
