In the event that the website uses cookies, the new regulations require that the website be configured so that the user is informed about the types of cookies used, their purpose, duration, etc... and may give or withdraw consent prior to use

To do this, on the website, in addition to the cookies policy, it is mandatory to enable a visible message, requesting the user’s prior consent before using cookies or allowing them to be set, for example:

“ This website uses its own and third-party cookies for functional purposes (to allow web browsing), to optimize navigation and customize it according to your preferences as well as to show you advertising based on your browsing profile (p.e pages visited).

If you press OK, you accept all cookies.
If you press REJECT, you reject all cookies.
To manage cookies click on CONFIGURE COOKIES.
If you do not press any option no cookie will be used and we will ask you again when you access the website again.”


In this case it is possible that the user can CONFIGURE COOKIES by opening a dialog window for the user. An example of how to configure the configuration window is as follows:


  • Technical cookies (essential) They are necessary for the navigation and the proper functioning of our website, control the traffic and the communication of data, identify the session, guarantee the security of your purchases, etc...
  • Analysis cookies They allow you to quantify the number of users and thus perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the use you make of the website.
  • Preferences or customization cookies allow us to remember information for accessing the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate your experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to show, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser, etc..
  • Behavioral advertising They allow us to analyze your browsing habits on the Internet so we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile

Another simple example could be:

“ This website uses cookies to anonymously and statistically analyze your use of the website, improve content and your browsing experience. For more information access the Cookies Policy.

If you press ACCEPT, you accept all cookies.
If you press REFUSE, you reject all cookies.""


In this case it is allowed to accept or reject ALL cookies without customizable options.

Another example where cookies can be set could be the following:

“ On this website cookies are used to improve your browsing experience, to store your preferences, as well as for technical reasons. For more information about our cookies, please access our Cookie Policy. We have included some configuration options that allow you to tell us exactly which cookies you prefer and which do not.

Press OK to consent to all cookies.
Press CONFIGURE to decide which options you prefer.”


In this case, as in the first, a dialog window must be opened so that the user can configure the different options.


The types of cookies, their description, purpose, duration, etc.. depend on the developer of the website, so each website must adapt the informative contents of the COOKIE NOTICE and the PRIVACY POLICY to the cookies that are actually used.
