A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

We use the following cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart, and secure browsing.
Functionality cookies: Also known as “preferences cookies,” these cookies allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer, what category of business you would like information about, or what your user name and password are so you can automatically log in. These are used to recognize you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalize content for you, greet you by name, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Statistical cookies: Also known as “performance cookies,” these cookies enable us to monitor the use and performance of our websites, establish statistics, number of visitors, and the use of various site elements (which pages or sections are sought the most often, which articles are read the most, etc.) to ensure that our services are as relevant and user-friendly as possible.
Because these are third-party cookies, they are not saved by us. We, therefore, suggest that you read the websites of these third parties to find out more about the saved cookies and how they are managed.
Sharing cookies (social links): Our sites contain links to Facebook, Twitter, and other similar social media sites that enable you to share the content of our websites with other people via social media. When you use these share buttons, a third-party cookie is installed.
If you are connected to a social media site when browsing our websites, the share button will allow you to link the content viewed to your social media user account. If you do not want the social media site to link the information gathered through our sites to your user account, you will need to log out of the social media site first.
In any case, you can also refuse these cookies by changing your browser settings as described below.
Please read the privacy policies of each social media site to ensure that you are aware of your rights and the usage purposes, in particular advertising, of browsing information they may collect via these application buttons.
Advertising cookies: These cookies track your online activity to help us to deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times you see an ad. These cookies can share that information with other organizations or advertisers. These are persistent, third-party cookies.
A third-party advertising cookie is set by the server of a domain separate from that of the visited site. The most common advertising third-party cookies are generally those used by media agencies.
Advertising third-party cookies are used to monitor a network of sites. For example, they are used to collect information about how visitors use a website and can be used to “recognize” an internet user on a number of different sites. In this case, the network management cookie is set or used from the pages of each site through the use of a tag.
