What are they
Cookie are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc.). These are then stored there until they are sent back to the same websites when the user visits again.
Whilst browsing a website, users may also receive cookies of different websites or web servers (so called third party cookies) on their own terminal. This is because the website being visited may have elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, social buttons, i.e. Facebook "Likes", Google "+1s" etc. as well as specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one where the required page is located. In other words, these are cookies that are set by a different website from the one currently being visited.
Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service" (see Section 122, (1) of the Code).
Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are used for creating profiles related to users and are used for the purposes of sending online advertising messages, using the preferences expressed by users when browsing the network. Section 122 of the Code refers to this where it says that "Storing information, or accessing information that is already stored, in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has given his consent after being informed in accordance with the simplified arrangements mentioned in section 13(3)." (Section 122, (1) of the Code).
