What are cookies?

Websites make use of smart and useful techniques to make them easier to use and more interesting for their users. One of the most known techniques involves the use of cookies. Cookies can be generated and used by the website owners or by third parties.

Cookies are small text files that the website stores on the userÕs computer. Information stored in cookies can also be used to keep track of any activities carried out on other websites that use the same cookies.

How many types of cookies exist?

There are several types of cookies, with different characteristics. First of all, cookies can be classified as follows:

  • Session cookies: cookies which are deleted immediately after closing the browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.)
  • Persistent cookies: unlike session cookies, they remain in the computerÕs memory and continue to work even once the browser has been closed, until a determined period of time has expired.
  • First-party cookies: cookies generated and managed directly by the website in use.
  • Third-party cookies: cookies generated and managed by entities other than those of the website in use (as a rule, under a contract between the website owner and the third party).

There are functional macro-categories:

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are generally required for the correct functioning of the website and to allow browsing; without them, the browser may not be able to correctly display the pages or allow the use of some features. For example, technical cookies are essential for keeping the user connected to the website, or to save the language and display settings, and so on. Furthermore, technical cookies can be divided into browsing cookies, which ensure the regular use of the website (for example, by allowing one to make a purchase or to confirm access to restricted areas); analytic cookies, similar to technical cookies but only when used directly by the website manager to gather aggregated information about the number of visitors and how they visit the website; functionality cookies, which allow the user to browse according to a set of select criteria (such as language, products to be purchased) in order to improve service.

Profile cookies

Profile cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the users through their browsing habits. Since these cookies are not required for the correct functioning of the website but are only used to propose the user offers that best suit their needs, the Municipality of Rimini, as far as they are concerned, in accordance with the regulations in force, provides an up-to-date link to information and consent forms from third parties with which it has signed agreements to install cookies through their website.
