2) Link-to cookies.
Therefore, the Data Controller informs that only technical cookies (such as those listed above) necessary to navigate within the Site are operational on the Site as they enable essential functions such as authentication, validation, management of a browsing session and fraud prevention and allow, for example: to identify whether the user has regularly accessed areas of the site that require prior authentication or user validation and session management related to the various services and applications or data storage for secure mode access or control and fraud prevention functions.
The data controller, using on the Link-to site exclusively technical cookies, is not obliged to acquire consent to their operation. Their deactivation would result in the impossibility of proper navigation in the areas subject to authentication with the consequent impossibility of using the services, pages, and features or content available therein.
