A cookie is a tiny text file a website places in a specific location on the hard disk of your device any time you visit that website. Subject to your consent, the website server sends the cookie to your web browser.

Cookies are unable to identify the natural persons operating a device. When you visit, we can install various types of cookies on your device: functional cookies, performance cookies, analytical cookies and social network cookies, provided you give us your consent.

Social media cookies

The so-called “social media cookies”, such as the “like” or “share” buttons, are linked to services provided by third parties.
