  1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on a user’s device (computer, mobile terminal or other devices) when accessing the Internet. Cookies are installed through a request sent by a web server to a browser and are completely passive, in the way that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive. Cookies may be recognized by the website that downloaded them or by any other website that uses the same cookies. This way websites can find out if a device has visited them before.

Cookies provide the user a pleasant experience when accessing and browsing a website by offering functionalities, such as language options, saving registration data, relevant advertising, shopping cart, etc.

The use of cookies does not imply requesting personal data and, in most cases, does not personally identify users.

  1. How long will cookies stay on my device?

The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it was placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and will be deleted from your hard drive immediately after your browsing session ends. These are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser until the user leaves the website or closes the browser window (for example when logging in / logging out of a webmail account or on social networks).

Other cookies remain stored on your device’s hard drive (persistent cookies) and allow us to recognize your device in the event of a subsequent visit to the Website. These are the cookies that allow us to make our Website more friendly, efficient and secure. Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting (third-party cookies) and can be used anonymously to store user’s interests, so they may deliver advertising relevant to users.

Persistent cookies used by us will expire within 30 minutes to one year from the date they were downloaded to your device.

You may choose to delete a cookie at any time by adapting your web browser settings, more details being provided below in the dedicated section of this policy.
