Cookie Policy

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are IT data, in particular text files stored on the user’s terminal devices which are created when you visit a website. These files allow the website to recognise the user’s device and display the website customised to the user’s preferences. Cookies usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device) and a unique number.

WHAT DO WE USE COOKIES FOR?

We use cookies to better tailor the contents of our websites to your needs and to optimise their use. We also use cookies to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that help us understand how users use our websites, which helps us improve their structure and content. We cannot identify you personally from this information.

WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?

Two types of cookies are used: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are created temporarily and remain on the user’s device until the user leaves the site or closes the browser. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain on the user’s device for the duration set within the cookie’s file or until they are manually deleted.

DO COOKIES CONTAIN PERSONAL DATA?

Personal data compiled with the use of cookies may be collected only for the purpose of performing specific functions for the benefit of the user. Such data is encoded in a manner preventing unauthorised access.

DELETING COOKIES

Such settings can be changed to automatically block cookies or alert the user each time they are sent to the user’s device. To learn more about this possibility and ways to manage cookies, please refer to your browser instructions.
