Our website uses cookies to help make it more useful and reliable. By using this website you agree to our use of cookies as described in this cookie notice.

1. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to remember your actions or preferences over time.

They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. The use of cookies is now standard for most websites. They do not contain any personal data.

2. What cookies do we use?

We use the following types of cookies cookies:

a. Tracking cookies

Our Website make use of tracking cookies by Google Analytics to track visitor statistics to check how effective our content is and what interests our users have.

Cookies of this type allow us to track and improve the functionality of our website and offer you relevant content. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify sources of traffic and learn which elements of the website are the most popular.

The information collected by those cookies is aggregate, and thus remains anonymous to us. We do not gather information allowing to identify a person visiting a website, because all data are anonymous and serve exclusively to improve the functionality of our website. Google does not use the collected information for its own purposes.

For more information, please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy. If you do not wish to accept Google Analytics cookies, you can customise your browser accordingly so that it refuses them (see point 3.b below).

b. Social plug-in tracking cookies

We use ‘social buttons’ to enable our users to share web pages. These are buttons for third party social media sites and these sites may log information about your activities on the Internet including on this website. Please review the respective terms of use and privacy policies of these sites to understand exactly how they use your information and to find out how to opt-out, or delete, such information.

3. How to control cookies?

You can control and manage cookies in various ways.

a. Disable cookies in Your browser

If the user does not consent to such a way of collecting data, they can decide to accept all (or some) cookies, or disable them altogether in the browser privacy settings. Disabling all cookies means that the user will not be able to use some of the functions, hence he or she will not have access to the full functionality of our website. Each browser is a little different, so please consult the help menu of your browser to learn how cookie preferences can be changed.

Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies.

b. Google opt-out

Google has developed the “Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on” which enables you the user to stop Google from using the data their analytics cookies have collected. You can download the add-on here.

Using the add-on does not affect the use of our website in any form, it simply prevents Google from using the collated data.
