Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send and record on their computer or mobile device, to be re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit.
The purpose of cookies is to
remember the actions and preferences of the user, for example the language
chosen for browsing, so that it should not be indicated again when the user
browses the pages of the same site or returns to the site at another time.
Cookies are therefore used for authentication, monitoring browsing sessions and storing information about user activities for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, the user can also receive web server cookies on their computer or mobile device other than the one they are visiting, these are called “third-party cookies”.
Cookies cannot collect any information stored on your computer or in your files.
Cookies can be session (automatically deleted when the web browser is closed) or permanent with expiry date or without expiry date. The most common and widespread web browsers allow cookies to be deleted manually or automatically when the browser is closed. The same browsers can be configured (administration panel) to block the creation of cookies, in this case the correct functioning of the website or the Internet service offered is no longer guaranteed.
- Technical cookies
- User profiling cookies
- Third-party cookies
Among technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Data Protection Authority includes:
- “Cookie analytics”, where used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregated form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself,
- Browsing or session cookies (for example for authentication),
- Functional cookies, which allow users to browse the website based on a set of selected criteria (for instance the language) in order to improve the service.
Profiling cookies, both those created by the Esperia website and by third parties, are, on the other hand, designed to create user profiles and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by the user while browsing the web. The Data Protection Authority requires explicit user acceptance for this type of cookie. The www.esperia-aviation.it site uses only technical cookies and no user profiling cookies, either private or third-party.
