They are not used for other purposes and are typically installed directly by the owner or manager of the website.
    They can be subdivided into three types:
    a. Browsing or session cookies that guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to perform a purchase or authenticate a login to access restricted areas);
    b. Analytic cookies, similar to technical cookies when used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the website;
    c. Functional cookies, that allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service provided.
    The use of technical cookies does not require mandatory prior consent, as established by the Data Protection Authority on 8 May 2014 and subsequent amendments and additions. Provision of consent is fundamental in order to browse the website.
