Technical information on Cookies and Tracking Pixels

Cookies are small text files that sites send to the user's terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user. Cookies are used for different purposes: computer authentication, session monitoring, storing information on specific configurations concerning users accessing the server, sending advertising messages aimed at the interests expressed by the user during navigation, etc. By visiting a site, the user can also receive and store on his terminal cookies that are sent from different websites or web servers ("third parties").

The tracking pixels, known in some cases also as "tracking codes", are a small portion of code that is released by some systems in order to trace data relating to the user and his session or data related to the opening of the e-mail, completely transparent to the user himself.

The tracking pixel can be released with different technologies, the most common are:

  • the 1 × 1 pixel-image;
  • the iframe;
  • javascript.

MAIOR uses the pixel-image which is a simple code that hides a practical and functional real-time information collection system. For example, it lets you know if an email we sent was opened, by whom and when.

Types of cookies

The law includes the following types of cookies:

  • based on what they do:
  • The "technical cookies":
    • Session or navigation cookies
    • Analytics cookies
    • Functionality cookies
  • The "profiling cookies"
  • based on who installs them:
  • "First party" cookies

  • Technical Cookies

Technical cookies are those that provide the user with some features that facilitate navigation. They are used solely and exclusively to make a website work fully or to collect anonymous and aggregate statistics.

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the website owner or manager.

3 types of technical cookies are identified:

  1. Navigation or session cookies: they guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website; these are essential cookies to navigate the site using all its features, such as maintaining the session and accessing restricted areas. They are strictly necessary, as without them it would not be possible to provide the requested services. These cookies do not collect information to be used for commercial purposes.
  2. Analytics cookies: similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site;
  3. Functional cookies: allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided

The website works optimally if technical cookies are enabled; however, you can decide not to allow the use of cookies on your computer by changing the settings of the browser used (see next paragraph). However, it should be borne in mind that, in the event that technical cookies are disabled, some features of the site may also be disabled.

  • Profiling cookies

Profiling cookies are those that allow you to create a personal profile of the user based on his behavior and are used in order to send messages in line with the preferences expressed by the same in the context of surfing the net

Another tool that acts like a profiling cookie is the "tracking pixel" that we mentioned at the beginning of this information.

  • First party cookies

These are cookies that belong to the Owner and that collect user data accessible only by MAIOR.

  • Third party cookies

Third-party cookies are those installed by visiting our site but using third-party computer systems.

These may include technical cookies, for which the user's prior consent for installation is not required, and profiling cookies.
