What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the website from which they originated on each future visit, or to another website that recognizes the cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow web pages to recognize individual users' devices (such as passwords, language selection, font size, other display settings). Cookies thus allow a website to be adapted to your interests so that you do not have to re-enter them each time you visit. Cookies are therefore used to perform computer authentication, monitor visits and track user behavior on a Web site. They may also contain a unique identification code that tracks user navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. While navigating the Web Site, you may also receive cookies from other Web sites or Web servers on your computer or mobile device (see "Third-Party Cookies"). Some functionalities may not work or may not work properly without cookies, so in certain cases they are technically necessary for the proper functioning of the Website.
There are different types of cookies. Depending on their characteristics and functions, they may remain stored on your computer or mobile device for different lengths of time: session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user's device until a predetermined time.
Among the technical cookies that do not require explicit consent for their use, the Authority for the Protection of Personal Data includes the following cookies:

Cookies for navigation or visits (for authentication, to make a purchase, etc.)
