Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to the user’s terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to the same websites on the successive visit by the same user. While navigating a website, the user can also receive cookies on their terminal sent by other sites or web servers (“third party” cookies) which may contain certain elements (such as, images, maps, sounds and specific links to pages of other domains, for example) present on the site that the user is visiting.
Cookies, usually present in the browsers of users in very large numbers and sometimes also with the feature of persisting over a long period of time, are used for different purposes: electronic authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations regarding users who access the server, etc.
For the remainder of this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technology by simply using the term “cookies”.
As regards the cookies used by the website managed by 6 TOUR SRL, different categories can be distinguished based on their characteristics and use:
Technical cookies are those used only for the purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or as strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service expressly requested by the subscriber or user in order to provide such service”.
Such cookies are not used for any other purpose and are installed directly by the operator of the website and used for the functionality of the system and for security reasons, namely to check that the identity of the person carrying out the operation corresponds to that of the person registered on the portal.
They can be divided into: navigation or session cookies which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, the user to make a purchase, or authenticate in order to access reserved areas); analytical cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; functional cookies, that allow the user to navigate based on a series of selected criteria (for example language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided to the user.
Profiling cookies serve to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown by users in the context of online navigation.
Visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the site visited (“first party”) and by sites operated by other organisations (“third party”).
The presence of these plug-ins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties and in particular the components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).
In this case these are also third party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).
