WHAT IS A COOKIE
Depending on your web browser settings, we collect information that is automatically transmitted to us by your browser when you visit our websites. This transmission is carried out by means of cookies. This information typically includes the IP address currently assigned to your computer, the type of operating system you have, and the web browser you are using.
A cookie is a small text file that a web server places on your computer’s hard drive.
A distinction is made between “session” and “persistent” cookies.
Session cookies We use session cookies to assign a unique identification number to your computer each time you visit one of our sites. Session cookies are deleted after the browser is closed. They are used to maintain the functionality of our websites.
When allowed, we use persistent cookies, which are not deleted immediately after you close your web browser, but remain on your computer for a certain period of time or until you delete them. Each time you visit our websites, our web server recognizes a persistent cookie that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. By assigning a unique identifier to your device, we create a database of your activities and preferences.
However, cookies do not contain your personal data, but only record the activities on your computer. If you access our site through a link that was sent to your email, or if you create a “user ID” during one of your visits, the information provided by our cookies or cookies from third party service providers may be associated with information in our records that would enable your personal identification.
Session cookies do not require your prior consent as they are essential for the operation of the site and will be deleted when you close your web browser.
Persistent cookies, which track your past activities and preferences but are not necessary for the operation of the site, require your prior consent. By visiting our site, you consent to the use of persistent cookies, unless you change your computer settings so that these cookies are not stored. The same applies to third party cookies.
HOW TO CHANGE COOKIE SETTINGS
Setting your web browser is a free and effective way to manage cookies. You can make one of the following decisions:
allow the use of all cookies integrated into the pages. Note: on the one hand, only their publishers will have access to these cookies; on the other hand, this process is not irreversible and you can always delete these cookies later (the procedure for managing cookies differs depending on the browser you use; please refer to the relevant instructions)
