In order for this site to work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most large websites do the same.
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It allows the website to store your actions and preferences (such as connection, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to enter them each time you return to the site or navigate from one page to another.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. For technical reasons, some cookies are necessary for the operation of our websites and we call them “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also allow us to track and target the interests of our users to improve the experience.
In addition, a distinction must be made between:
