In particular, such consent is not required for “technical cookies”, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, cookies which are indispensable for the operation of a website or to perform tasks requested by the user.
