“Cookies” are files of information, generally small in size, which are identified by a name and may be sent to your browser by a website that you are visiting. They record information about your browsing of a website.

The website uses cookies to ensure the availability and correct functioning of this website in order to optimise your browsing experience.

There are several types of cookie:

  • Technical cookies are cookies that are used to identify the services and sections that users visit on a website in order to facilitate browsing, to personalise services and content, and to enable users to take advantage of certain functions;
  • Analytics cookies are cookies that are used to analyse website traffic (number of page views, time on page, number of clicks, screen resolution, preferred language, website visited, page view timestamps, etc.), to suggest promotions or publish banners that appear on the website and are targeted to a greater or lesser degree, to provide social media functionality, to support the operation of some services and to measure the audiences for services.

Disabling cookies prevents any information relating to browsing of the website from being collected, and therefore also prevents editorial content from being suggested on the basis of your browsing.
