Do you collect information through cookies?
When you browse our website, we collect certain information through cookies and other tracking technologies (collectively, “browser cookies”).
Browser cookies are small text files that contain a unique identification number that is automatically deposited on a visitor’s computer. Per-session cookies track information during an active session and are stored only temporarily in your computer’s memory. Persistent cookies are deposited on a visitor’s computer until they expire or the visitor deletes them.
The browser cookies we use do not collect personally identifiable information, but rather general information that we do not combine with your personal information.
Strictly necessary cookies
Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
These cookies help us to improve and personalize your browsing experience according to your preferences (for example, your preferred language). If you do not accept these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly. You can choose whether or not to allow cookies when you connect to our site.
Statistics cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and communicating information anonymously. For example, we use Google Analytics to collect information about your use of our website (such as the pages you visit most often and any error messages you may receive). This information is anonymous and we use it solely to improve the efficiency and operation of our website. You can choose whether or not to allow browser cookies when you connect to our website.
If you wish to change your consent, you can do so directly in the cookie settings.

In the latter case, we take the necessary measures to adequately protect your personal information by adopting specific contractual measures and by limiting the personal information we share.
