What are cookies?
According to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of personal data, cookies constitute personal data when they can be associated with a device and, therefore, with an identifiable person.
Types of cookies
There are different types of cookies that contain different information and perform different functions (eg. Execution of computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of preferences for sending targeted advertising messages, etc). Each cookie, in turn, contains different data (eg the name of the server from which it comes, a numeric identifier, etc.). Such data may remain on the user’s device for different periods of time – a browser session, a few hours, several days or for longer periods.
Cookies that are used to browse or provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for other purposes. Technical cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site. Without the use of these cookies, some operations could not be performed or would be more complex and / or less secure. Therefore, technical cookies are indispensable. Technical cookies do not require the user’s consent, as they are necessary for the proper functioning of the site.
Third-party analytical cookies used as technical cookies
Third-party analytical cookies can be assimilated to technical cookies only if used for the purpose of optimizing the site by the owner of the site, to collect information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the site. When used as technical cookies and when anonymization measures prescribed by the Guarantor are adopted, analytical cookies are necessary to allow the owner of the site to improve the functioning of the same and the user experience on the site. The user’s consent is not required, as Eurosystems has activated the IP address anonymization function and uses the data in aggregate form
