1.2.1. Cookies information


To make this site work properly, we place small data files called cookies on your device.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

Cookies are specific to the browser you are using, so if you use Internet Explorer some times and Firefox or Chrome (for example) at any other time, each browser will ask if you agree to cookies for this site.

How do we use cookies?

On this site, cookies are used to gather anonymous visitor data. They are not necessary for the correct functioning of the site, but they do enable us to know which pages are of most interest, or where our visitors come from. It is important for you to know that we do not know who you are.

Cookies are required to view videos from YouTube.

The searching bar to find things easily, used in some parts of the site, also uses cookies.

Cookies are also used to record if you have agreed with the use of cookies on this site so that you are not asked the question every time you visit the site (the cookie expires after one month, when you will be asked again).

You can update your setting profile. Please, see http://www.allaboutcookies.org for more information. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functions offered by the site may not be available.
