What are cookies and what are they used for
Cookies are small text files that websites visited by the user send directly to their terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored before being sent back to the same websites on the next visit by the same user (so-called first-party cookies). When browsing a website, the user can receive cookies from different websites or web servers on their terminals (so-called third-party cookies); This is possible because elements may be present on the visited website, such as images, maps, sounds, or specific links to web pages in other domains that reside on different servers from the one where the requested page was found. In other words, these are cookies that are set by a website other than the one being visited at the time.
Cookies may be of a duration limited to a single browsing session on the browser (so-called session cookie). In this case, they are automatically disabled when the user closes the browser. Otherwise, they can have a predetermined duration. If they do, they will remain active and stored the hard drive until their expiry date, and will continue to gather information on the browser during different browsing sessions (so-called permanent cookies).
Cookies are used to perform different functions. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the website and use of its functionality (so-called technical cookies ). Others are used to obtain statistical information, whether or not in aggregate form, on the number of users accessing the website and how the website is used (co-called tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, other cookies are used to track your consumer profile and make you view advertisements on the website that may be of interest to you and be consistent with your tastes and your consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).
For further details on these different categories of cookies, read this article. Learn how they work and what they do, and choose freely whether to consent to or prevent their use.

Other technical cookies are useful for allowing you to store some of your preferences (e.g. language or country of origin) without having to reset them on subsequent visits (so-called functionality cookies). For this reason, the functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, because they remain stored in users’ computers even after the browser is closed, until their scheduled expiry date or until you decide to delete them.
