WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?
The Website uses “technical” cookies, such as browsing or session cookies, functionality and analytics cookies, created and used by the Website manager.

Furthermore, functionality cookies are installed which are strictly necessary to provide services explicitly requested by the User. They are used to remember preferences, searches on the “Find Your Oil” oil recommendation tool, and to help Users to use the Website effectively and efficiently.
Browsing and functionality cookies do not require acquiring the prior consent expressed by the User because they are strictly necessary to provide the service requested by the Website User.

The Website uses profiling cookies to show customized advertising messages based on the tastes and preferences expressed online by the User. This activity is called “retargeting” and involves the display of dedicated messages on other Websites visited by the User that make advertising spaces available. These cookies are called persistent cookies because they are stored beyond the duration of the browsing session.
