They are not used for other purposes and they are normally installed directly by the owner or by the website manager. They can be divided into:
   - navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas); they are necessary for the proper functioning of the website;
   - analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website, in order to enhance the performance of the website - functionality cookies, that allow the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (for example, the language, the products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
