A cookie is a small file, generally composed of alphanumeric characters, which is downloaded to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognize the user's device, trace its navigation through the different pages of a website and identify users who visit a site again. Cookies do not contain information that personally identifies the user, but the personal information we store in relation to the user can be linked by us to the information stored in the cookies and obtained from them.
Session cookies and permanent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (the period between the opening of a browser window by the user and its closure) or be kept for a longer period of time.
- Session cookies: allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. Session cookies expire when the browser session ends and therefore are not stored for long. For this reason, session cookies can be considered less intrusive from a privacy point of view than persistent cookies.
- Permanent cookies: they are stored on a user's device between browser sessions and allow you to store user preferences or actions with respect to a site (or in some cases with respect to different websites).

- Proprietary cookies: cookies set by the visited domain.
