Cookie Policy

Cookies make sure our Website and services perform essential functions. They also help us improve your visitor experience, for example by providing more relevant content.

This Website uses both "first party" cookies (cookies set by this Website) and "third party" cookies (cookies set by a third-party website that is providing a service for this Website). We use “first party” cookies for keeping the Website running and security. We use “third party” cookies for analytics, functional and advertising purposes.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer, mobile device or any other device connected to your computer.

Different types of Cookies

There are two types of cookies depending on how long they are stored, persistent cookies and session (temporary) cookies.

  1. Persistent Cookies are stored on the user’s device to help remember information, settings, preferences or login credentials that the user previously stored. This helps to create a convenient and faster experience on the Website. These Cookies have a validity period granted by the web server. It means that they are active until you disable the consent to use the relevant cookies or change the settings of the browser or the social media service that provides them.
  2. Session (temporary) Cookies are stored in the user’s computer memory when you visit the Website. Session cookies are erased once you close the browser.

We also classify cookies according to their purpose as functional, analytical, advertising and social plug-ins. Below we provide a detailed description for each category.

Functional cookies

These cookies are necessary for the Website functioning and cannot be switched off in our systems. Functional cookies are usually used in response to actions taken by the User, such as setting privacy options, logging in or filling out forms. You can change your browser settings to block them, but the Website will then not function properly.
