What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and your terminal (usually the browser) and is normally used by the operator of a website to store necessary information in order to improve navigation within the website or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user. When you visit the same website again or any other website, the device checks for a recognised cookie, so it can read the information it contains. Different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation within the pages of the same website, profiling in order to send targeted promotional messages, analysis of the number of visits to the website).
During navigation, the user can also receive cookies sent from different websites or web servers (so-called third parties) where some other elements may exist (ex. images, maps, sounds, specific links to other page domains) on the website that the user is visiting.
More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the website and expire automatically when the browser is closed. Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on the device for a prolonged period of time.
The specific purposes of the different types of cookies installed on this website are described below.
