WHAT IS A COOKIE
Cookies are short strings of text that a website could send to your device (whether it being a pc, notebook, smartphone or tablet) during navigation. They are normally stored directly on the browser used for navigation. The same website transmitting them, can then read and record the cookies on your device in order to obtain various information. What kind? Each cookie has a precise role.
TYPES OF COOKIES

Technical cookies are generally necessary for the correct functioning of the website, and in order to consent a better navigation experience; without them you may not be able to visualize web pages correctly, or use some of the services. For example, a technical cookie is essential to keep the user connected during the entire navigation on a website, or to memorize the language and visualization settings, and so on.
Profiling cookies are more complex! These cookies have the task of outlining the user and are used for the purpose of sending publicity messages agreeing with the preferences shown by the user during navigation.

first-part cookies, that is cookies generated and managed directly by the subject managing the website on which the user is navigating;
third-part cookies, generated and managed by different subjects than the manager of the website on which the user is navigating (for instance, this is the case of a Google Adwords banner or of a Youtube video).
