1.Definitions of Cookies and their features
Cookies and similar tracking technologies are pieces of data which are downloaded to users’ devices when they visit a website or use an app. They enable websites and apps to remember users’ actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so users do not have to keep re-entering them.
These technologies are used for authentication, tracking, and maintaining user-specific information regarding users’ activities. They may contain a unique identifier to keep track of browsing patterns for analytical or advertising purposes.
Depending on their function and the time they remain active, there are different types of Cookies. Session Cookies are removed when the browser window is close. Persistent Cookies remain on users’ computers once they have closed the browser down, relying on a time limit for self-deletion.
In compliance with relevant legislation, explicit consent is not always required. In particular, it is not required for “essential” Cookies, which are used to convey information through an electronic communication network or which are necessary to provide a service that is specifically requested by the user. In other words, these Cookies are essential for the running of a website.
Prior consent of users is required for non-anonymous analytical Cookies and for performance/advertising Cookies. They collect data for statistical purposes on how visitors use a website or are used to make the advertising displayed on the website more relevant to users’ interests.
