Some cookies are needed for technical purposes, for example to make a purchase or to access your e-mail introducing your username and password. These are so-called “technical cookies” and they are only enabled while the user is on the site. If you disable them, you might not be able to properly access all the content and services on that site, or browsing might become a bit more uncomfortable, especially if you try to access an area where you have to log-in.

Other cookies are called “analytical cookies” and they gather statistical data while you browse, thus allowing the site to have some insights into your interests in order to offer you customized services. Disabling those cookies does not hinder the pages’ operations, but you might end up missing commercial information or advertising that might be of interest to you.
