The information below is intended to inform users regarding the placement, use and administration of cookies during their navigation on this website. When you visit the website, small data files - cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies will be stored on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer's memory. In this Policy, the term “cookie” is used in a broad sense and includes similar technologies such as localStorage. Cookies contribute to the functioning of this website and provide us with information on the way in which you are interacting with it. We use this information to improve our site.

Cookies Internet cookies (also known as “browser cookies”, “HTTP cookies” or “cookies”) consist of small files comprising letters and numbers that will be stored on the computer, mobile phone or other equipment through which the Internet is accessed.

Cookies are installed through a request sent by a webserver to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome). Once installed, cookies have a fixed lifetime, and they are “passive” in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the hard drive of the user on whose device they have been installed. 

A cookie consists of two parts:

  • • the name and
  • • the content or the value of the cookie.

From a technical point of view, only the webserver that sent the cookie in the first time can access it again when a user returns to the webpage associated to that specific webserver.

Cookies are divided into the following categories:

  • Session Cookies - A “session cookie” is a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes the browser.
  • Persistent cookies - A “persistent cookie” is a cookie that remains stored on the user's terminal until it reaches a certain expiration date (which may consist of a few minutes, days, or a few years in the future).The cookies used on this website can be classified into three categories:
  • Performance cookies - This type of cookies preserve the preferences of a website user, so that when the user returns it is not necessary to reset their preferences. 
  • User analysis cookies - These cookies let us know if a particular user of our website has previously visited / used the webpage. These cookies have statistical purposes only.
  • Recording cookies - When you register on this website, some cookies are generated and they memorize this request. These cookies are then used by servers to show us the account you are registered with and if you have permission for a particular service. These cookies also allow us to associate any comments posted on the website to the username of the account used. If the “Keep me logged in” option is not checked, these cookies will be automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session.

Some cookies are primary cookies and belong to our website. Others are third-party cookies and belong to other domains. Third-party cookies must also comply with the data protection and privacy policies available on this website. These cookies may come from the following third parties: Google Analytics, or Facebook.

Lifetime - Cookies are managed by webservers. The lifetime of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is stored. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (i.e. session cookies) and are no longer stored once the user leaves the webpage. Some cookies are stored and reused whenever the user returns to that webpage (i.e. persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time through the browser settings.
