Cookies Policy


When you visit our website, information relating to the pages you look at may be saved in files called “cookies”, which are stored on the device that is used to access the site. This page explains what cookies are, what they are used for and how you can adjust your settings to manage cookies.


Cookies are text files that that may – depending on your settings – be stored on the hard drive of your device (be it a computer, a tablet, a mobile phone or any other device that can access the internet) when you visit a website or click on an advertisement. Cookies are managed by your internet browser, and only the issuer of a cookie can read or amend the information contained in it. Cookies are used to identify the device on which they are saved and are operational for a limited period of time.


There are three different types of cookies that may be saved on your device while browsing our site. The intended purpose of each of these types of cookies is described below.

1. Technical cookies

These cookies must not be deactivated. If they are, you will have problems accessing the site and its services.

2. Audience-measuring cookies

Audience-measuring cookies are issued by us and/or our technical service providers in order to measure the number of people accessing our various types of content. These cookies are also used to identify any potential navigation problems and thus improve the website’s usability. These cookies produce only anonymised statistics and do not provide information on individual visitors.

3. Social media and partners cookies

Social media and partners cookies allow you to share our site’s content with other people or tell people what you think about content on the site. A number of sharing buttons are integrated into our site using third-party applications that could issue this type of cookie. This is true, for example, of Facebook’s “like” and “share” buttons, as well as the “Twitter”, “Google+”, “YouTube” and “Instagram” buttons. The social network providing the button in question may be able to use that button application to identify you, even if you do not click on the relevant button while visiting our site. Indeed, that type of button application may allow the relevant social network to see your browsing activity on our site if your account with that social network is active on your device (i.e. an open session) while you are browsing our site. We suggest that you consult the privacy policies of those social networks to see what browsing information acquired via such button applications is ultimately used for (as regards advertising, for example). Those privacy policies should allow you to indicate your wishes to the relevant social network in respect of cookies, notably by adjusting the settings on your user account.


You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
