1.3. Cookies perform different functions and make navigating the Website more efficient by remembering the user’s preferences and enhancing their navigation experience. They can also help personalise the advertisements shown during navigation and the marketing activities aimed at the user, ensuring that they reflect his/her interests and preferences.

2. Types of Cookies used

2.1. When a user connects to the Website via their web browser, cookies may be installed on their device in order to enable the Website to recognise that device, ensuring the effective use of the Website for the lifetime of the cookies, and to collect information on accesses to the Website.

2.2. When navigating the Website, cookies may also be sent to the device from other sites or servers (i.e. “third parties”); these may contain certain elements (e.g. images, maps, sound, specific links to pages in other domains) present on the site being visited. With regard to this profile, these may be:

2.2.1. First party cookies, sent directly by Enel to the user’s device.

2.2.2. Third party cookies, which are sent by a third party but on Enel’s behalf. 

2.3. Depending on the purpose of the cookies, these can be divided into:

2.3.1. Technical cookies: their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session-identifying data (numbers generated randomly by the server) necessary for the secure, efficient navigation of the Website; these are not persistent cookies stored on the user’s computer but are erased when the browser is closed. These cookies are used for security reasons and to improve the service offered to users.

2.3.4. Profiling cookies: profiling cookies create user profiles and are used to send out advertising messages that reflect the preferences expressed by the latter while surfing the web or to enhance their navigation experience. These cookies can be used for this purpose only with the user’s consent. 

Enel specifically uses the Facebook Pixel, a cookie used for retargeting and which allows advertisements consistent with previously visited pages and with the user’s navigation on the Website, to be shown on social media or when the user carries out a search using a search engine. This technology means that Enel only sends the user advertisements that are tailored to his/her tastes rather than standard advertisements.
