1.1. About cookies

Websites use helpful and intelligent techniques to enhance user-friendliness and make the experience as interesting as possible for each visitor. Cookies are one of the best known techniques. They 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’ computers. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track your browsing on different websites that use the same cookie.

Cookies are classified by duration and origin.

We believe that it is important to provide you with information about the cookies used on our website and their purpose. The aim is threefold — to protect your privacy, make our website more user-friendly and guarantee its development.

3. Different cookies and their roles

We use different types of cookie according to purpose. Please find below a list of the most common types of cookie and a description of their purpose.

3.1. Session cookies

A session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory when you browse a website. They are not stored on your computer for a long time and disappear as soon as you close your browser.

3.2. Origin cookies

3.4. Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are installed by a different domain from the one featured in the browser address bar, i.e. by an organisation other than the website owner.

For example, cookies used to collect Internet statistics can be third-party cookies.

Third-party cookies used to generate more comprehensive surveys on user browsing habits are considered more sensitive in terms of integrity. This is why most web browsers allow you to edit your settings to block them.
