Last updated: March 25, 2024

What are cookies

A cookie is a very small text document stored on your computer or other device (and maintained by your browser) when you visit a website. It often includes a randomized unique identifier so that a website can "recognize" this cookie again on your next visit. Cookies allow the functioning of websites, improve browsing, or provide certain information to website owners, particularly in terms of audience measurement.

Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, but they facilitate, for example, finding preferences, pre-filling certain fields or adapting the content of the services on the visited site. Such data allow us to improve the ergonomics of our site and our services according to your interests.


Do we use cookies, and why?

We install our own cookies and third-party cookies on your browser or device through our site. Some of these cookies are uninstalled automatically at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent, which means that they remain installed for a longer period of time unless you uninstall them. For a complete list of the cookies our site uses and their respective expiry dates, please refer to the table below.

We use cookies for our site to function as intended, to analyze our performance, to ensure that our websites are secure and to conduct marketing. Cookies are also useful to identify bugs and errors.

We collect cookies in each of the following categories:

  • Essential cookies: These cookies are essential for you to browse the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site.
  • Functional cookies: These cookies allow our website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer, what your username and password are and other similar preferences.
  • Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use our website, like which pages you visited, and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. It is all aggregated and, therefore, anonymized. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions.

The cookies we use may be deposited either directly by our site and therefore managed by us (first-party cookies); or by partners and service providers, which are therefore managed by third parties (third-party cookies).

The latter option may result in certain personalized services not being provided and you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features offered by our site.

Some cookies will be disabled by default, which means that we will seek your permission to activate them. These include technological functionalities that may enable us to locate, identify or profile you.
