Cookies are short text files, stored on a user’s device by a website, used for the technical functioning or for gathering statistics. Typically they are used to provide a more personalised experience for a user, for example when an online service remembers your user profile without you having to login.
When you visit a website, this may collect some data on your browsing experience such as your IP address, the pages you visited, when you visited and the website page you were redirected from. This information is used to gather aggregated and anonymous statistics with a view to improving the services and to enhance your user experience.
According to your consent, the cookies we use are of two types: session and persistent.
A session cookie exists only in the temporary memory of the browser while the user navigate the website. Web browsers normally delete session cookies when the user closes the browser. Session cookies are temporarily saved in the user’s browser and their only purpose is to reflect the choice of the user of not allowing persistent cookies.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – see https://aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
