Cookies, which are usually found in large numbers in user browsers and which at times can also remain there for long periods, are used for various purposes: to execute IT authentications, monitor sessions, store information on specific configurations regarding the users who access the server, etc. More information about cookies can be found at In order to correctly regulate these devices, they must be distinguished given that there are no technical characteristics that set them apart from each other based precisely on the goals pursued by those who use them. Steps in this direction have however been taken by the legislator who, by implementing the dispositions set forth in directive 2009/136/EC, has brought back the obligation to acquire informed consent in advance from users to the installation of cookies used for purposes other than the purely technical (see art. 1, section 5, subsection a) of Legislative Decree 28 May 2012, n. 69, which modifies art. 122 of the Code).
