While browsing a site, the user may also receive cookies from different sites or web servers; this happens because the website visited may contain elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains. This means, they are cookies that are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.

Cookies may be limited in duration to a single browser session (session cookies), in which case they are automatically deactivated when the user closes the browser; or they may have a pre-determined expiry date, in which case they will remain stored and active on your hard disk until such expiry date, continuing to collect information over the course of several browser sessions (persistent cookies).

Cookies are used for different functions. Some are necessary to allow you to browse the Site and use its functions (technical cookies). Others are used to obtain statistical information, in aggregate or not, on the number of users accessing the Site and on how the Site is used (tracking or analytics cookies). Finally, others are used to draw up a profile of you as a consumer and to display advertisements on the Site that may be of interest to you, as they are consistent with your tastes and consumption habits (so-called profiling cookies).
