We are required to obtain your consent for all non-essential cookies used on our website. You can block cookies (including essential cookies) at any time by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block essential cookies you may not be able to access all or parts of the content/ information on our site.
Depending on the entity managing the domain from which the cookies are sent and processing the data, two types of cookie can be distinguished:
1. Proprietary cookies:
Sent to the user’s device from equipment or a domain managed by the publisher of the website from which the service requested by the user is provided.
2. Third-party cookies:
Sent to the user’s device from equipment or a domain that is not managed by the website published, but rather by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies, such as where we may have adverts on our website or use Facebook pixels so that we may show you relevant content from us when you are on Facebook.
In cases where the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered proprietary cookies. There is also another classification based on the period of time during which cookies remain stored in the client’s browser:
a. Session cookies:
Session Cookies are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any personal data from your computer
b. Persistent cookies:
A persistent cookie is stored as a file on your computer, and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again.
Finally, there is another classification involving four types of cookies according to the purpose of the processing of the data obtained:
a. Strictly necessary cookies:
These cookies are essential to enable you to use the website effectively, such as when buying a product and / or service. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
b. Performance cookies:
These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular.
c. Functionality cookies:
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced features. For instance, we may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.
d. Targeting cookies:
These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests.
