Information about Cookies
A cookie is a small file, generally made up of alphanumeric characters, which is downloaded to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognize the user's device, track navigation through the different pages of a website and identify users who revisit a site. The cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but the personal information we store about you may be linked by us to the information held in and obtained from the cookies.

Session and permanent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (the period between the user opening a browser window and closing it) or they can be kept for a longer period of time.
Session cookies – allow websites to link a user's actions during a browser session. Session cookies expire when the browser session ends and are therefore not kept for long. For this reason, session cookies can be considered less intrusive from a privacy point of view than permanent cookies.
Persistent cookies – are stored on a user's device between browser sessions and allow the user's preferences or actions to be memorized with respect to a site (or in some cases with respect to different websites).
Proprietary cookies and third-party cookies
There are two types of cookies :
Owners are the cookies set by the visited domain.
Third Parties are cookies set by a domain other than the one visited by the user. We speak of a third-party cookie if a user visits a website and a third-party company sets a cookie through that site.
