Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember the choices made by the user (such as the name, language or region of origin) and provide advanced personalised functionalities. These cookies can also be used to remember any modifications to the size of the text, font and other parts of the web pages that can be personalised. They can also be used to provide services that have been requested, such as watching a video or comments on a blog. The information collected by these types of cookies can be rendered anonymous and incapable of monitoring your navigation activities on other websites.

By visiting our website, users accept that such cookies may be installed on their device.

Third-party/Marketing cookies

Third-party cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one currently being viewed. For example, the website could contain a Facebook “Like” key. That key will set up a cookie that can be read by Facebook; this is considered a third-party cookie. Some advertisers use these types of cookies to keep track of visits by users on all sites on which they offer their services. If a user feels that such traceability could be a source of concern or interference in his/her privacy, it is possible to disable third-party cookies on Firefox and other browsers.

By using our website, users accept that such cookies may be installed on their device.

Notes:

Deactivating third-party cookies could prevent tracking by advertisers in some cases, but not all of them. See AboutCookies.org for more detail.

For further information on tracking activities by advertisers and for policies relating to the third-party cookies used in this website see the following links:

Websites may use third-party cookies for purposes that are not necessarily linked to privacy and their deactivation could interfere with the correct functioning of those sites.
