They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website; analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the site operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site itself; functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of criteria selected in order to improve the service provided to the same.
