1. What are cookies?
Cookies are messages that web servers pass to your web browser when you visit Internet sites. Your browser stores each message in a small file, called cookie.txt. When you request another page from the server, your browser sends the cookie back to the server. These files typically contain information about your visit to the web page, as well as any information you have volunteered, such as your name and interests.
2. What cookies do we use?
Category 1 – Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its
features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you
have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Category 2 – Performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages
visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t
collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and
therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
Category 3 – Functionality cookies
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name,
language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or
traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located.
These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and
other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you
have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Category 4 – targeting cookies or advertising cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also
used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the
effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with
the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this
information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or
advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.

3. How do we use third party cookies?
Sometimes we can work with third-party cookies to enable services on our web site. Advertisers and other subjects could use their cookies to collect information on your activities on the website and/or on their advertising banner.
They may use this information to suggest advertising you might be interested in or to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign.
We do not control these cookies; to disable or refuse third-party cookies you should refer to their web sites.
4. How do I control cookies?
You can refuse to accept cookies from this web site any time, by activating the setting on your browser, which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. Be noted that if a user disables cookies, some web pages will not work properly.

The disabling of “third-party” cookies does not affect the navigability in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies “owners” and those of “third parties”.
As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools -> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal. In the Internet it is easy to find documentation on how to set the cookie management rules for your browser, as an example you will find some addresses related to the main browsers:
