Websites use sound and effective techniques to enhance the attractiveness and user-friendliness of the website for each visitor. Cookies are one of the most widely-used techniques. Cookies can be used by website owners or third parties, such as advertisers, who communicate via the website you are visiting.
Cookies are small text files stored by websites on users’ devices. The information contained in cookies may also be used to monitor your browsing on the various websites using the same cookie.
Cookies are classified according to duration and source.
We believe it is essential to provide you with information on the cookies used by our website and their purpose. The aim is threefold: to protect your privacy, to enhance the user-friendliness of our website and to ensure its development. The following information will provide you with more details on the cookies used by our website and their purpose.
We use various types of cookies according to their end purpose.
Below is a list of the most commonly-used cookies and a description of their purpose.
3.1 Session cookies
A session cookie is stored temporarily in the memory of your device when you browse a website. Session cookies are stored for only short periods on your device and disappear as soon as you close your web browser.
3.2 Origin cookies
These cookies are installed by the website itself (the same domain which is displayed in the browser address bar) and can only be read by this website. These cookies are generally used to store information such as your preferences, which will be used during your next visit to the site.
3.3 Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are installed by a different domain from that which is displayed in the browser address bar, i.e., by an organisation other than the website owner.
For example, the cookies used to collect web statistics may come from a third party.
Third-party cookies enable more detailed analyses of the user’s browsing habits; they are deemed more sensitive in terms of integrity. It is for this reason that most web browsers allow you to change your settings in order to refuse these cookies.
