First party cookies
Technical cookies not requiring consent
Technical cookies are those used purely in order to make a communication on an electronic communication network or to send the supplier information that is strictly necessary to Mediobanca to provide a service specifically requested by the user. They are not used for any further purpose and are normally installed directly by the Controller or website manager. They can be divided up into:
- - Browsing or session cookies: guarantee normal browsing and use of the website; they are, in fact, necessary to the correct website function;
- - Analytics cookies: these are similar to technical cookies, where used directly by the website manager to collect information in aggregated form, on the number of users and on how they visit the website, in order to improve website performance;
- - Function cookies: enable the user to browse according to a series of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase, etc.) in order to improve the service provided
No technical Cookies require consent; they merely require an information notice to be given and are therefore installed automatically upon accessing the website.

All cookies apart from the above-specified technical cookies are installed or activated only after you give consent, expressed the first time you visit the website.
Consent can be expressed generally, i.e. closing the banner that contains the short information notice, running through the page on which the banner is displayed or clicking any element of that page; alternatively, it can be supplied or denied selectively, choosing the methods specified below.
