The provision of personal data for the purposes mentioned in art. 2, paragraph 1, letters a), b), c), d), and e) is mandatory only for the indicated purposes, as the legal basis for processing is the execution of the services requested by the user, the execution of any contractual obligations, or a legitimate interest of the controller.

Therefore, the user will be adequately informed as required for each specific case, but in any case, they may browse the website even if they deny consent to the processing of personal data where requested; in such cases, some functionalities or features of the Site may be disabled.
