2. COOKIES DEFINITIONS AND CATEGORIES
Using the clear definition made by the Privacy Authority , “Cookies are brief fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) sent from websites to the user’s computer (generally to the browser) during visits. These are then stored ready to be sent back to the same websites on subsequent visits by the same user. ”
The user, in the course of navigation, can receive on its terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone) not only cookies that are sent from the website he is visiting, but he can also absorb them from different sites or web server (so-called “third-party” ).
Indeed, some elements on the viewed web pages (such as images, maps, sounds, links, etc.) are installed by a different subject than the owner of the displayed website.
Cookies are usually present in large number in the user’s browser and they sometimes take on a very high level of temporal persistence.
The purposes for which they are used can be quite varied: from reasons of a purely technical nature (for example to allow an easier and smoother navigation) to real profiling activities (to define trends, tastes and behaviour patterns related to a certain subject for improving the effectiveness of advertising messages directed to the latter).
2.2. Categories of cookies
In general , cookies can be divided into two broad categories: a) “technical” Cookies; b) “Profiling” Cookies.
a) Technical Cookies
These cookies are used for the unique purpose of “allowing transmissions of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service “(cf. art. 122, paragraph 1, Privacy Code).
In other words, these tools are used to make the navigation possible or to provide a service requested by the user.
Failing this, in effect, some operations, may not at all be performed within the site, or would be more complex (and sometimes less safe). An example of this kind of cookies, are the ones of a home banking site, which allow to keep the user identification in the context of a session, thus avoiding the need to continuously re-enter his details (with incidence also on the profile of the security ).
An additional feature of this kind of cookies is that these are not used for other purposes except as for those indicated, and they are usually installed by the owner (or the operator of the website).
Based on their function, the Privacy Authority has proposed the following partition:
I. Navigation Cookies: They ensure the normal navigation or use of the website (i.e. those cookies that allow you to make a purchase or authenticate for access to restricted areas);
II. Analytics Cookies: Cookies are also regarded as technical when directly used by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, the number of users and how they visit the site;
III. Functionality Cookies: these allow users to browse according to a number of selected criteria (such as language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service.
b) Profiling Cookies
These are cookies whose main aim is to create user profiling and they are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown in the field of web navigation.
These tools, by virtue of their own particular invasiveness towards user’s private sphere, need the consent (informed) of the user to be installed on its own terminal.
c) Owners’ Cookies and Third Party Cookies
A further differentiation is offered with reference to the different subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal.
Visiting a web page, effectively, it is possible to receive cookie from both the site operator (in this case it is called “Owners” or Editor’s cookies) and the sites run by other organizations (the “Third Party”). An example of the latter category is the service Google Analytics.
It should be pointed out that the classification of technical and Profiling Cookie can also be applied to third-party cookies.
Depending on the purposes for which such third party cookies will be used, they are called the ‘Technical Third Parties Cookie “or” third-party cookies Profiling “.

The website www.fralexmac.it includes some cookies which are sent by Google Analytics.
However Google Inc allows website operators to require internet anonymisation of all the IP addresses of users. This is made possible effectively by providing to the technical managers a tool that can be included in one’s own website.
Through this method the owners of websites using Google Analytics have the opportunity , effectively, to set the program in order to use only a part of the IP address.
Please refer to the following link for more information and details:
Fralex S.r.l. and Mac Autoadesivi S.r.l. have asked to Google Inc. to anonymise some IP addresses and have adopted procedures in order to prevent the company Google to “cross ” information of Google Analytics with other data in its possession.
For much information on the last point, please refer to the following link:
Finally, please note that user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics on his own browser by installing the component of opt –out, which is issued by Google .
