Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such service"(see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Data Processing Code personal).Cookies of this category include persistent cookies and session cookies.

The most common example of this feature is the shopping cart of an e-commerce site.For example, when you visit a page of a catalog and select some items, the session cookie remembers the selection so that in a virtual shopping cart, items remain selected when you are ready for the checkout operation.Without the session cookie, if the user clicks on checkout, the new page could not recognize the activities passed on the previous pages and the cart would always remain empty.
