Al fine di giungere a una corretta regolamentazione di tali dispositivi, è necessario distinguerli posto che non vi sono delle caratteristiche tecniche che li differenziano gli uni dagli altri proprio sulla base delle finalità perseguite da chi li utilizza. In tale direzione si è mosso, peraltro, lo stesso legislatore, che, in attuazione delle disposizioni contenute nella direttiva 2009/136/CE, ha ricondotto l’obbligo di acquisire il consenso preventivo e informato degli utenti all’installazione di cookie utilizzati per finalità diverse da quelle meramente tecniche (cfr. art. 1, comma 5, lett. a), del D. Lgs. 28 maggio 2012, n. 69, che ha modificato l’art. 122 del Codice).
