Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user’s device during browsing and they perform various functions such as remembering service login data, collecting statistical information on visited pages, identifying the browser and device used, selecting content and targeted communications depending on the preferences and more.
Cookies can be various, depending on the kind of data they store and how long they remain stored on the user’s device.
Session or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted at the end of the browsing, while persistent cookies have longer deadlines (from a few minutes to full months) depending on the functions they perform. These are the functions that distinguish cookies in two categories: technical and non-technical (or profiling).
Technical cookies handle the information needed to deliver the pages and facilitate browsing allowing you, for example, to not have to re-enter user and password to access particular services, to remember the last visited page, or how far you’ve seen it a video, to recognize the type of device you are using and adjust the image size accordingly. Technical cookies also allow aggregate statistics analysis on most visited pages and user preferences, but only in anonymous form, and are not used to analyze behavior or preferences of individual users.
Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are used to analyze individual users’ browsing interests and habits, to customize their navigation and deliver, for example, content, including advertisements targeted for particular interests.
Cookies can be delivered directly from the manager of the website you are browsing on (cd web editor) or, if the website relies on external services for particular functions, by third parties.
ThinkLegal uses technical and third-party cookies to improve the experience on the website, for instance adapting it according to your browser and the device you are using.
You can disable the cookie functions directly from the browser you are using, according to the instructions provided by the respective manufacturers, or by using the appropriate programs; however, remember that restricting the ability of websites to send cookies can worsen the global user experience of browsing.
The consent to receiving cookies can also be expressed through specific user configurations on the browser. Most browsers allow you to set rules to handle cookies sent by some or every website, providing users with more privacy control and denying the possibility to receive cookies, or to modify cookies choices previously made.
