What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is stored on your computer, smart phone, tablet or smart TV, which can be accessed by certain websites. Amongst other things, cookies allow a website to store and retrieve information regarding the browsing habits of a user or their equipment and improve the user’s browsing experience as much as possible. Cookies are uniquely linked to a user and their equipment and do not provide references to the user’s personal data, which could allow them to be identified. The user can configure their browser to provide a notification when cookies are sent by a website or to block the installation of cookies.
Why are they useful?
From a technical point of view, cookies allow websites to function in the most agile way possible and to adapt to user preferences, for example, to store the language or currency used in their country. Furthermore, they help those responsible for websites to improve the services they offer, thanks to the statistical information collected by cookies. Finally, they help to make the advertising we present to you more effective, thus allowing us to offer you services free of charge.
What type of cookies does our website use?
