2. What are cookies?


Cookies are short text strings that the Site sends to the User’s terminal, where they are saved and then retransmitted to the Site on their next visit. Cookies may be: first-party (placed directly by the Wellness Foundation) or third-party.
Regarding data protection aspects, these are divided into:

  • Technical cookies, used for the sole purpose of ‘transmitting over an electronic communications network, or as is strictly necessary for the provider of a service of the information company explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to supply such a service” (see article 122, paragraph 1 of the Code). These cookies are necessary for the Site to function and cannot be deactivated. They are usually only set in response to actions performed by the User that constitute a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in or filling out forms. It is possible to set your browser to block or receive warnings about these cookies, but as a consequence, some parts of the Site will not work. These cookies do not store personal information.

  • Profiling cookies, used to link specific actions or recurring behavioural patterns in the use of the functions offered (patterns) to specific identified or identifiable subjects, to group the various profiles in homogeneous clusters of different sizes so that the Data Controller can, among other things, modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly personalised manner beyond what is strictly necessary to provide the service and send targeted advertising messages, i.e. in line with the preferences expressed by the User when surfing the web. The following are profiling cookies:

    • Performance cookies: these cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so that we can measure and improve our Site’s performance. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Site. All information collected by cookies is aggregated and, therefore, anonymous;

    • Functionality cookies: these cookies allow the Site to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They can be set up directly by the Foundation through third-party providers whose services have been added to our pages.

    • Targeted advertising cookies: our partners can set these cookies via our Site. These companies can use them to build a profile of the User’s interests and show relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not store personal information directly but are based solely on identifying the Internet browser and device.




In general, it is possible to block cookies altogether. However, this would have an impact on the use of the Site. All the most recent browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These can usually be found on the browser menu under ‘options’ or ‘preferences’. To understand how to set them up, the User can consult the following links:

Pursuant to the provision of the Data Protection Authority: ‘Guidelines for cookies and other tracking tools’ of 10 June 2021, the manner in which consent is obtained is such as to make the effect of the User’s action, which is equivalent to the manifestation of consent, unequivocal, also for the User.
In particular, when browsing the Site for the first time, a banner will appear in the footer through which the Data Subject may express their consent to tracking performance, functionality and cookies through the ‘cookie setting’ function.
The User’s choices regarding the Site’s cookies will, in turn, be recorded in a technical cookie. However, this cookie may not function correctly under certain circumstances. In such cases, the User is advised to delete unwanted cookies and disable their use through their browser settings (see section 2).
User cookie preferences will have to be reset if different devices or browsers are used to access the Site. Closing the banner by selecting the ‘continue without accepting’ command in its upper right-hand corner entails the persistence of the default settings and, thus, the continuation of browsing without cookies or other tracking tools other than technical ones.
