ABOUT COOKIES

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

COOKIES THAT WE USE

We use cookies on our website. Insofar as those cookies are not strictly necessary for the provision of our website and services, we will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website. The session cookies enable the website to link the user’s different actions to one another during a browsing session. Thus, the website is able to keep track of the user’s navigation from page to page, and the user is not asked for the same information already given on a previous page.

Session cookies expire after the session has ended, and they are not saved.

HOW CAN I DISABLE COOKIES?

The following links may prove useful for understanding these settings. You can find more information through the ‘Help’ menu of your browser. Please keep in mind that you must have cookies enabled in order to use this website.
