How cookies are used by our website

On this website we use cookies and similar tools to improve performance and enhance the user experience.
This document explains how this is done.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a website can store on your computer or mobile device the first time you visit a site or page. Cookies allow the website, or another website, to recognize the device the next time you visit it. Web beacons or other similar files are based on the same principle. We use the term "cookie" in this document to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions that cookies perform. For example, they can help us to remember your name and preferences, analyze the performance of our website, or enable us to recommend content that we believe is most relevant to your preferences.

Some cookies contain personal information - for example, if you click on "remember me" when you're running authentication, your user name is stored in a cookie. Most cookies do not collect information that identifies you, instead they gather more general information such as the way in which users have come to our site, how they use it, or the general location of a user.

What kind of cookie does this site use?

In general, our Cookies perform up to three different functions:

1. Essential cookies

Some cookies are essential to the operation of our site. For example, they allow us to identify and to ensure that registered users are able to access the restricted pages. If a user chooses to disable cookies, they will not be able to access all the content of the reserved pages.

2. Performance cookies

We use other cookies to analyze how our visitors use our website and to monitor the performance of the website. This allows us to provide a high quality experience customizing our offer and quickly identifying and resolving any issues that arise. For example, cookies might be used to keep track of which pages are most popular, what method of connection between the pages is the most effective, and to determine why some errors may occur. We may also use cookies to highlight items or services of the site that we think may be of interest to you, based on your use of the website.

3. Functionality cookies

Such cookies allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies can save you the effort of typing your user name each time you access the site, and allow you to load preferences to customize the site.

We use these cookies to provide advanced services such as the ability to watch a video online or post a comment to a blog.

We can also use third-party cookies to help us with market research, conversion tracking, to improve site functionality and for monitoring compliance with the terms and conditions and our copyright policy.
