- What are cookies?
- Cookies are text files containing small pieces of information that are stored on the user’s device whenever the user visits a website. The cookies are then sent back to the source website, every time the user visits the site, or are sent to another website that recognises that same cookie.
- The cookies allow our systems to recognise the user’s device and to make any pre-settings immediately available.
- As soon as the user accesses the platform, a cookie is sent to the hard drive of their computer.
- Why are cookies useful?

- they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and to display the type of content which is best suited to the interests of that specific user;
- they help us improve our website and offer users a better and more personalised service;

- Types of cookies
There are two broad categories of cookies: “proprietary cookies” and “third-party cookies”:
- Proprietary cookies are installed on the user’s device directly by the website provider. Such cookies are often used to recognise the user’s device whenever the user visits the website again and to remember the user’s browsing preferences. Essentially, these are the cookies we use.
- Third-party cookies are installed by a service provider on behalf of the website provider and may be used by the service provider to recognise the user’s device whenever the user visits other websites. Third party cookies are most commonly used for advertising or access detection purposes.

- Use of Google Analytics
- This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (“Google”).
- Google Analytics uses the so-called cookies as well, i.e. text files that are stored on the user’s device in order to analyse how users use the website.
- The information generated by the cookies on how the user uses this website is normally sent to a Google server in the United States and stored there.
- However, in case of activation of the IP anonymization on this website, Google will originally truncate the user’s IP address for the Member States of the European Union or the other Member States of the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, a complete IP address is sent to a Google server in the United States and then truncated there.
- Google will use such information on our behalf, in order to assess how users use the website, draw up reports on website activity and provide additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transferred from the user’s browser to Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
