2. What are cookies
2.1 General information on cookies. Cookies are, as a rule, text strings that the websites visited by the user (so-called ‘publisher’ or ‘first party’ websites) or else different websites or web servers (so-called ‘third parties’) place and store within a terminal device in the user’s possession — whether directly as is the case with publisher websites, or indirectly as is the case with ‘third parties’, i.e. through the intermediation of the publisher websites.
2.2 Classification. Cookies are necessary to manage the Website and to provide services by the Controller and, particularly, to improve the Data Subjects’ browsing experience. Cookies differ depending on the type and purpose, as hereinafter described.
3. Types and purposes and deactivation of cookies used by GDM
3.1 Technical cookies. Technical cookies are used solely for the purpose of ‘carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide that service’. The Website uses browsing and functional cookies, in relation to activities that are strictly necessary for the Website functionality and use by Data Subjects.

3.2 Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are used to trace specific actions or recurring behavioral patterns in the use of the offered functionalities back to specific, identified or identifiable individuals for the purpose of grouping the different profiles within homogeneous, multi-sized clusters; this is aimed in turn to enable the controller to, inter alia, provide increasingly customized services beyond what is strictly necessary for the delivery of the given service and also send targeted advertising messages, i.e. messages that are in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of their web-browsing activities.
