What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device (computer, tablet or smartphone) when you visit a particular website. The text stores information that the site is able to read when it is consulted at a later time from the same device. Basically, cookies are useful because they allow a site to recognize your device.
Cookies perform various functions: they help you navigate the various pages of the site more efficiently, they store your preferences and generally improve your browsing experience. In some cases, cookies allow us to show you promotions that may interest you the most. Some of these cookies are necessary for the site to function properly, while others are useful because they can safely store, for example, the user name or language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed on your PC is that you no longer need to fill in the same information every time you want to access a previously visited site.
Some cookies are automatically deactivated at the end of the session (from when the user opens the browser to when he exits the browser) others are saved on the user’s device for a longer period (usually, these cookies are used to store preferences and choices of the user who visits the site or to profile commercial promotions).
The site may contain both original cookies and third-party cookies, i.e. cookies that are activated by a domain other than that of the site.

4.Cookies that profile commercial offers: these are cookies that allow us to present commercial offers that could more easily meet your interests. They could also work in the sense of limiting the number of times a given commercial offer is presented to you or they could be used to evaluate how effective a particular promotional campaign has been.
