(Provision of 8 May 2014 issued by the Italian Data Protection Authority published in O.J. no. 126 on 3 June 2014 implementing directive 2002/58/EC)
Cookies are small pieces of text that a visited website sends to a user’s computer (usually the browser), where they are stored and sent back to the same website the next time the user visits. In addition to cookies, other similar tools (web beacons/web bugs, clear GIFs or others) capable of identifying the user or the terminal are also subject to the provision of the Italian Data Protection Authority.
While browsing a website/app, the user may also receive cookies sent to his/her terminal by other websites or web servers (known as “third parties”), which may contain certain elements (such as images, maps, sounds, and specific links to pages in other domains) present on the website/app the user is visiting.
Cookies are usually found in large numbers in users’ browsers and can sometimes remain there for long periods of time. They are used for various purposes: to authenticate computers, monitor sessions, store information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc. Further information on cookies can be found at www.allaboutcookies.org.
Given that there are no technical characteristics that set them apart from each other, for proper regulation of these devices they must be differentiated according to their intended use. Steps in this direction have however been taken by the legislator who, by implementing the provisions set forth in directive 2009/136/EC, has established the obligation to acquire informed consent in advance from users to the installation of cookies used for purposes that are not purely technical (see art. 1, section 5, subsection a) of Legislative Decree 28 May 2012, no. 69, which amends art. 122 of the Code).
