- Preference cookies
This document contains information about the technologies that allow this Application to achieve the purposes described below. These technologies allow the Owner to collect and save information (for example by using Cookies) or use resources (for example by running a script) on the User’s device when the User interacts with this Application.
For the sake of simplicity, in this document these technologies are briefly referred to as „Tracking Tools“, unless there is reason to differentiate.
For example, although Cookies can be used in both web and mobile browsers, it would be inappropriate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile applications, since these are Tracking Tools that require the presence of a browser.

Some of the purposes for which Tracking Tools are used may also require the User’s consent. If consent is given, it can be freely revoked at any time by following the instructions contained in this document.
This Application uses Tracking Tools managed directly by the Owner (commonly called „first party“ Tracking Tools) and Tracking Tools that enable services provided by third parties (commonly called „third party“ Tracking Tools). Unless otherwise specified within this document, such third parties have access to their respective Tracking Tools.
Duration and expiry of Cookies and other similar Tracking Tools may vary depending on what is set by the Controller or each third party provider. Some of them expire at the end of the User’s browsing session.
In addition to what is specified in the description of each of the categories below, Users can obtain more detailed and updated information on the duration, as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Tracking Tools – in the privacy policies of the respective third party providers (through the links provided) or by contacting the Controller.

- the User has given consent for one or more specific purposes; Note: in some jurisdictions, the Controller may be authorised to process Personal Data without the need for the User’s consent or another of the legal bases specified below, as long as the User does not object („opt-out“) to such processing. However, this does not apply if the processing of Personal Data is governed by European legislation on the protection of Personal Data;
- processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the User and/or the performance of pre-contractual measures;
- processing is necessary for the performance of a legal obligation to which the Controller is subject;
