4. Cookies used on the website
The cookies used by WESET are own and third party cookies.
4.1. Necessary Cookies
These cookies are considered essential for browsing in both environments, as they enable the user to use their features or tools, such as, for example, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, guaranteeing browsing security.

PRESENTATION OF COOKIES POLICY
A banner should be presented containing the Cookies Notice and also the option to configure them, that is, to allow their acceptance or rejection separately.This banner must be visible on the user's screen, even if the user scrolls, or navigates in different sections of the website itself.
Taking into account the above, in the first layer (the cookie banner), the following should be detailed:
- First layer (Cookie Notice)
- The identity of the controller;
- A reference to the use of third party cookies if any;
- The purpose of the cookies (specifically stating whether profiling is carried out based on user browsing and the purpose of this profiling, for example, in the case of offering personalised advertising);
- A link to access the second layer of information, (“COOKIES POLICY”), where the rest of the information can be consulted;
- An opt-in mechanism to close the cookie notice by implementing an “ACCEPT” button; and
Here is what the banner text should look like:
“We use our own and third-party cookies for analytical purposes and to show you advertising related to your preferences, based on a profile of your browsing habits. Click HERE for more information. You can accept all cookies by clicking the “Accept” button or configure them or refuse their use by clicking HERE“.
Regarding this first layer example, it is therefore important to take into consideration that (i) it must be added as a fixed banneron the website and that (ii) cookies cannot be loaded until the user expressly accepts (by clicking on the “Accept” button ). In addition, (iii) the user must be able to withdraw their consent at any time, by accessing the Settings panel enabled in “You can accept all cookies by clicking the “Accept” button or configure them or refuse their use by clicking HERE“.
In addition, in this configuration panel, the user must be able to separately accept the enabling of cookies by category/purpose (for example, the user must be able to choose to accept analytical cookies and not behavioural advertising cookies), for example by implementing YES/NO checkboxes.
However, the maximum degree of granularity (cookie a cookie selection) should be avoided, as too much information makes decision-making difficult.
Finally, in relation to third party cookies, it is sufficient to identify them by name or by the brand name by which they are identified to the public, without including the full company name.
8. Settings Panel
The settings panel should be offered through a link inserted in the Cookies Notice or first layer of information, so that a pop-up window appears in a table (so that it is more visual) so that the user can proceed to accept / reject separately enabling groups of cookies in a granular manner depending on the different categories that you use on the platform (except for session / technical cookies (in this case they are called “necessary”), which are exempt from this duty of consent, but it is advisable to inform of their existence, as indicated in the Cookies Policy).
This should include information on the expiry of the cookie, the developer, etc., and should include a button on the panel that allows the user to reject all cookies, to respect the requirement that it should be as easy to withdraw consent as it is to give it.
Taking into account the above, we indicate below how the text should be included in the Settings Panel, in the case of the button to save the user's choice of cookies:
“When you click “Save settings”, the cookie selection you have made will be saved. If you have not selected any options, pressing this button will be equivalent to rejecting all cookies”.
The second layer, i.e. the text of the Cookies Policy, should detail the following:
Second Layer (Cookies Policy)
In the Cookies Notice banner, in addition to the settings panel specified above, a link should also be included in the “Click HERE for more information” that redirects the User to the full text of the Cookies Policy that we have included in this Dossier.
