- on the basis of their duration, in persistent cookies (meaning cookie that remain stored, even after the browser is closed and until a set deadline, on the user’s device) and in session cookies (meaning cookie that are not stored permanently, but are automatically deleted each time the browser is closed);
- based on the purpose of each cookie:
- Technical Cookies that are cookie allowing the website – which previously installed them – to remember, for example, the preferences expressed by the user while browsing or to make a purchase or to authenticate (also called “strictly necessary cookies”). Said cookies are necessary for the proper operation of the website or of the services enabled or requested by the user;
- Analytics and measurement cookies, which are used for statistical analysis on website access or visits and for statistical purposes and in order to measure its performance and thus improve usability.
