- regarding the purpose of each cookie: some cookies allow the website that installed them to remember, for example, the preferences expressed by the user while browsing, making a purchase or performing authentications to access restricted areas (so-called “technical cookies”)
Other cookies allow the site that installed them to monitor the user’s browsing activities also for the purpose of sending adverts and / or offer services in line with the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the web (so called “profiling cookies”).
