Note: For some mobile devices, it will be necessary to read the device manual to be able to fully manage cookies.

The Way We Use Cookies

  1. The website uses cookies to obtain statistical information of a non-personal nature, such as how much time the user spends reading the content of the page, or which banner has received the most clicks. These types of technologies allow you to improve both the Website and your marketing activities and your experience on the Website. Most web browsers accept cookies as the default setting. If you delete or disagree with the acceptance of cookies, this may affect the operation of some options or services on the Website. At the same time, by accessing the website or using it, you consent to the use of cookies as explained in this policy.
  2. Cookies are primarily a piece of text information that the Website stores on your hard drive or other device used to browse websites for the sole purpose of storing data.

The information collected by cookies is not personal (they do not contain your name and surname), however, they allow us to place advertisements and content that may be of interest to you. These can include articles, personalised advertising, and other services. Cookies are therefore used both to improve your online experience on the Website and to analyse the marketing itself.

Your personal data, collected, for example, when setting up an account, may be extended with data collected by cookies to complete your profile.

You can disable cookies at any time, but it will affect the displayed content of the website. It will also make your browser not adapted to your needs. Removing cookies may therefore disable your initial preferences on some websites, because it is cookies that remember them.
