Websites use purposeful and considered techniques to make them user-friendly and as interesting as possible for each visitor. Cookies are one of the best-known techniques. They can be used by website owners or by third parties, such as advertisers, who communicate through the website which you are visiting.
Cookies are small text files stored by websites on user devices. The information contained in the cookies can also be used to monitor how you surf on the various websites which use the same cookie. Cookies are categorised according to their expiry date and source.
We consider it essential to provide you with information on the cookies used on our website and on their purpose. The aim is threefold – to protect your privacy, to increase the usability of our website and to help its development. The following information will allow you to find out more about the cookies used on our website and their purpose.

Third-party cookies can be used to perform more in-depth surveys of user surfing patterns and are considered to be more sensitive in terms of integrity. This is why most web browsers will allow you to change your settings in order to refuse them.
