As all professional websites, our website uses cookies in order to improve user’s experience. If you do not know what a cookie is, how it is used and what you can do about it, then you will find answers to all these matters in the following paragraphs.

What is a “cookie”?

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website (through the browser) and stored on a user’s computer while interacting with the website. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember the user’s activity, information that helps the owner(s) of the website make relevant improvements (content, layout) according to the user’s preferences.

Types of cookies

Based on their duration (lifespan):

  • session cookies– are deleted when the user closes the browser
  • persistent cookies– remain on the user’s device for certain period of time (a few months to years).

Based on the cookie owner

  • first-party cookies– are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain
  • third-party cookies– stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.

We use Google tools (Analytics, Tag Manager, WebmasterTools) to generate (anonymous) statistics about the user’s behaviour on our website, without personally identifying them.

We also use third-party technology that allows us to create an even better experience for our users. You may recognize such third-party tools in our social media share buttons (AddToAny) that make possible fast information sharing in your social profile if you are logged in to it, embedded social media feeds, YouTube videos or interactive maps (Google maps styles with Snazzy Maps), newsletter subscriptions (MailChimpDRIP).
