WHAT ARE COOKIES?
We use the term "cookies" to refer to cookies and similar technologies through which information can be collected automatically. An "Internet Cookie" (term also known as "browser cookie" or "HTTP cookie" or "cookie") represents a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user through which the Internet is accessed. Cookies are installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Edge). Cookies, once installed, have a determined lifetime, remaining "passive", in the sense that they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the user's hard drive on whose equipment they were installed. A cookie consists of two parts: the name of the cookie and the content or value of the cookie. Technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that server.
