The so-called technical cookies are used for navigation and to facilitate access and use of the site by the user.
These are informatic tools that provide purely technical data exchange between the user and the displayed website, in order to make the navigation easier, faster and move forward with it.

4) What are profiling cookies?
They are cookies used to track user navigation in order to create profiles of their taste, preferences, interests and also research.

5) Is the user’s consent required for the installation of cookies on his terminal? For the installation of technical cookies no consent is required, while profiling cookies can be installed in the user’s terminal only after that the latter gave consent and after being simply informed.
6) How webmasters can request the consent?
The Privacy Authority has established that when a user accesses a website, a banner containing brief information has to pop up with a request for consent and a link to the more extensive information, such as that visible on this page, explaining what profiling cookies are and the use made of them in the site in question.
7) How should the banner be designed?
The banner must be designed to hide a part of the contents of the page and specify that the site uses profiling cookies from also third parties.

8) What indications must contain the banner?
9) How to keep documentation of consent to the use of cookie?
It is permitted that a technical cookie is used to takes into account the user’s consent so that it does not have to re-express consent in a subsequent visit to the site.
No. You can use other systems as long as the identified system has the same requirements. The use of the banner is not necessary for sites that use only technical cookies.
11) What should be included in the extended information page?
It must be explained the characteristics of cookies installed by third parties.
It must also point out to the user how to navigate the site without their preferences being traced, the ability to browse incognito and also the cancellation of individual cookies.
The website owner is required to do that.
