1.    WHAT ARE COOKIES?

1.2. Cookies allow our systems to recognise the user’s device and immediately activate any previous settings.
1.3.  As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is sent to their computer's hard drive.


2.     WHY ARE COOKIES USEFUL?

2.1. Cookies are useful for the following reasons:

  • They allow the website to recognise the user’s device and display content tailored to the user’s interests.
  • They help us improve our website so that we can provide you with a better service, in line with your requirements.
  • They allow us to recognise the user’s device when they access our website again.

3. TYPES OF COOKIES

Broadly speaking, there are two types of cookies: first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

3.1. First-party cookies are cookies that the website operator places directly on your computer; they are usually used to recognise your computer when you return to the site, and to remember your browsing preferences. These are basically our cookies.
3.2. Third-party cookies are placed on your computer by a service provider on behalf of the website operator; the service provider may use them to recognise your computer when you visit other websites. Third-party cookies are often used for website analysis or advertising purposes.
