What are cookies?
A cookie is a little text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between an internet site and your terminal (usually through a browser) and is normally used by an internet service provider to store the information required to improve navigation within the website or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences displayed by the user while navigating the internet. When that site is visited again, or any other site, the user’s device checks for the presence of a known cookie in order to be able to read the information contained within it. The different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation of the pages of the same site, profiling for the purposes of sending targeted promotional messages, analysis of the number of visits to the site). During navigation, users may also receive on their terminal cookies sent by other sites or web servers (so-called third parties), which may contain certain elements (for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to the pages of other domains) present on the site that the user is visiting.
More generally, some cookies (defined as session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the site and expire automatically on the closure of the browser. Other cookies ( called persistent cookies) remain in the device for an extended period of time. The specific purposes of the various types of cookies installed on this site are described below. You can deactivate cookies by following the instructions given below.
