Cookies are small files of letters and numbers stored on your browser or device that enable the cookie owner to recognize the device when it visits websites or uses online services. The website you visit may set cookies directly, known as first-party cookies, or may trigger cookies set by other domain names, known as third-party cookies. 

Depending on the time they remain active, these cookies:

  • Per session: these gather and store data while the user accesses a web page.

  • Persistent: data remains stored in the computer system and may be accessed and treated during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie.

We may use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. Our website uses of these cookies to properly operate or provide necessary functions relating to the services you request. They include, for example, cookies enabling you to securely log into our website.  

  • Analytical or performance cookies. These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. 

  • Functionality cookies. These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. By recognizing you when you return to our website, they may, for example, allow us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, or remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). 

  • Tracking or targeting cookies. These cookies enable different tracking related functions, which may include advertising. They may allow us to record information about your visit to our website, such as pages visited, links followed, and videos viewed so we can make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. 

Our Privacy Policy describes our practices for any personal data that our first-party cookies collect, store, or use, including, if applicable to you, our legal basis for processing personal data.
