What are Cookies

Cookies are text strings that the websites visited by the user (so-called Publisher, or “first parties”) or other different sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) place and store within the user’s terminal device, so that they are then retransmitted to the same sites on the next visit.

Cookies are used for different purposes: execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users accessing the server, storage of preferences, or to facilitate the use of online content, such as to keep track of items in a shopping cart or information for filling in an IT form, etc.; they can also be used to profile the user, to “observe” their behaviour, for example in order to send targeted advertising, measure the effectiveness of the advertising message and adopt consequent commercial strategies. In this case we are talking about profiling cookies.

Categories of Cookies

First-party cookies

These are the cookies installed and managed directly by the Publisher of the site you are visiting (in our case, Octo). Therefore, they belong to the domain that is displayed in the URL of the visited site and are mainly used, for example, to ensure its technical operation.

Third-party cookies

These are the cookies installed on the terminal by a subject other than the Publisher of the site visited by the user (so-called third parties) and, therefore, are created by domains other than the one displayed in the URL of the site visited. These cookies are not necessary for navigation.

Technical cookies

They are cookies used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service.

These are, in other words, cookies that are essential for the operation of the site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority also includes (cfr. “Guidelines on the use of cookies and other tracking tools” of 10 June 2021):

  • navigation or session cookies (for authentication);
  • functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language) in order to improve the service rendered to the user;
  • analytics cookies, only when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.

Profiling cookies

These are cookies aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net. For the use of these cookies, a prior consent of the user is required.
