Cookies are text files that are sent from a web server (ie the computer where the visited website is "hosted") to the user's browser (Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, etc.) and stored in the device, fixed or mobile (computer, smartphone, tablet), used for user navigation. The cookie (but possibly also another tracking tool) allows the Site to identify the user's device, through the information stored in it, every time the same reconnects to the Site through that device.


Through the use of cookies (or other tracking tools) we can make it easier for the user to navigate the Site, as well as analyze their preferences and tastes by verifying navigation (profiling activity), and consequently offer products and services that are more consistent with the interests and expectations of the user (eg by displaying advertisements in line with the interests of the user).




Cookies can be "session" (when they are stored exclusively for the duration of the browsing session on the Site and are deleted when the browser is closed), or "permanent" (they are stored for a longer time, until they expire or until cancellation by the user). Furthermore, cookies or other tracking tools can be either "first party" (when they are created and used only by the owner of the website that issued them and are not transferred to third parties) or "third parties" (when are issued and managed by parties other than COIN).




An example of other tracking tools are "tracking pixels", small fragments of code integrated into the website which, once downloaded to the user's browser, allow the social media provider (eg Facebook) to monitor the user's session. , collecting data for analysis and user profiling purposes.
