The Guarantor for the protection of personal data, in the “Guidelines for cookies and other tracking tools” of 10 June 2021, which entered into force on 10 January 2022, has identified the following macro-categories of cookies:
Technical cookies: these are those used only for the purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide this service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003, also the Privacy Code).
