Cookie policy


A “cookie” is a file of a limited size, which generally consists of letters and numbers and is sent by an Internet server to the browser’s cookie file, located on your computer hard drive (or another device connected to the Internet, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you view this website.

A cookie generally includes the name of the website that it comes from, its lifecycle (the time period for which it remains on your device) and a value, which is generally a randomly generated unique number.

Two types of cookies may be used: temporary cookies and permanent cookies. Temporary cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browsing session. Permanent cookies remain on your device for longer, for a duration of time that is specific to each cookie and remain valid until their expiry date (unless they are deleted by the user beforehand).

Cookies may be used by web servers to identify and monitor users as they browse the various pages of a website and to identify users who return to their websites.

The cookies do not contain your Personal Data but some of your Personal Data, which is stored by us, may be related to the information stored in the cookies and obtained from them. For further information on how your Personal Data is processed, please view our Privacy policy.
