What are cookies?
Cookies consist of portions of code (computer files or partial data), sent from a server to the user's Internet browser, and by that browser automatically stored on your computer and automatically sent to the server at each occurrence or subsequent access to the site. Usually a cookie contains the name of the website from which it comes from, the life span of the cookie ( that means for how long it will remain on the user's device), and a value, which is usually a unique number, generated randomly. Once they return, cookies are sent back to the website that originated them (first-party cookies) or to another site that recognizes them (third-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize the user's device and have different purposes such as, for example, allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your favorite sites and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help to ensure that advertising contents displayed online are more targeted to an user and to his interests.
If the user decides to disable cookie, this can influence and/or limit his navigation experience inside Sites. For example he may not be able to visit certain section of the Site or he could not receive personalised informations when he visits Sites.
