What are Cookies?
Web pages have no mnemonic function. When you navigate from one page of a website to another you will not be recognized as the same user on each of the pages. A cookie is a small text file in which certain information about your navigation is stored. Cookies allow you to be recognised by the Website as a unique user. They are sent from the Website to your terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, notebook, etc.), to be stored and then retransmitted the next time you visit.
Cookies are essential to the operation of the Internet and ensure a more efficient operation of the Website, enriching the browsing experience, for example:
- remembering the settings you entered, so you don’t have to change them every time you access a new page;
- storing the information you have entered (e.g. user name, language, browser type, etc.).
Duration and Type of Cookies
Some cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session, while others remain stored in the terminals, normally hosted in the browser used (for example: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.). There are therefore two types of cookies:
Temporary cookies (or session cookies) are removed from your computer when you close your browser. They are used to store temporary information, such as items in your shopping cart.
Almost all of the website cookies displayed are session cookies whose activity ends when you close your Internet browser.
Persistent cookies are those cookies that are stored on your computer or other device during a browsing session, but that remain on your computer or other device after the end of that browsing session. Persistent cookies have a number of features in the interest of users (they are used to store information, such as your login name and password, so you don’t have to re-enter them each time you visit a specific site). They can remain stored on your device for a variable period of time, but still determined by the function they are performing.
These two types of cookies (session and persistent) may also be “proprietary” and “third-party”.
When we talk about proprietary cookies, we mean the cookies transmitted by the website owner. When we talk about third-party cookies, we mean cookies transmitted by third parties, which are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. The latter fall under the direct and exclusive responsibility of the third party operator.
You can delete all cookies from your browser at any time. However, permanently disabling all cookies can lead to navigation difficulties or, sometimes, the inability to take advantage of some features of the Site. For example, you may no longer be able to: use the InfoCert shop to make your purchases, enter the Customer Area and manage the products you have purchased, use our web-based products, etc.
