Cookie Policy

We would like to inform you in a simple, clear and transparent manner about our use of cookies and similar technologies before you browse our site.

When does this policy apply?
This Policy describes the personal information that we may collect through our site, and how we use it. Please read it along with our website privacy policy, which is available here.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document stored on your computer or other device (and maintained by your browser) when you visit a website. It often includes a randomized unique identifier so that a website can “recognize” this cookie again on your next visit. Cookies allow the functioning of websites, improve browsing, or provide certain information to website owners, particularly in terms of audience measurement.

Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, but they facilitate, for example, finding preferences, pre-filling certain fields or adapting the content of the services on the visited site. Such data allows us to improve the ergonomics of our site and our services according to your interests.

What is interested-based advertising, and do we conduct any?
​​​​​​​Applicable laws may require us to disable by default, and seek your permission to activate, technological functionalities that enable us to locate, identify or profile you. If they apply, we will comply with these requirements.

Interest-based advertising (also known as targeted or behavioral advertising) means that we take note of your preferences and interests through cookies or otherwise, and then use them to show you advertising and marketing materials that are relevant to you (based on those preferences and interests).

Without interest-based advertising, you would still be getting ads when browsing the Internet. However, these ads would not be personalized based on your preferences and interests – and so, they would be less relevant to you, and less effective for us.

We perform interest-based advertising. For instance, we use partners to provide you with ads based on your browsing history and search requests and to provide you with personalized ads based on your viewing content.

Do we use cookies, and why?
We install our own cookies and third party cookies on your browser or device through our site. Some of these cookies are uninstalled automatically at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent, which means that they remain installed for up to 24 months unless you uninstall them.

We use cookies for our site to function as intended, to conduct marketing, to analyze our performance and to ensure that our websites are secure. Cookies are also useful to identify bugs and errors.

We collect cookies in each of the following categories

- Essential Cookies: Essential cookies are necessary to operate the core functions of our websites. These include login cookies, session ID cookies, language cookies as well as security cookies.

- Functional Cookies: Functional cookies are used to provide you with certain website functionality, and to remember website preferences, consents, and configurations.

- Analytical Cookies: Analytical cookies are used to generate aggregated statistical data about traffic and behavior of our websites’ users. For instance, we use cookies to determine how visitors use our websites, such as with the number of visitors, from where our visitors come from on the web, the pages they visited and how much time was spent on our websites. We only see this data in an aggregated and traffic-based format, and we cannot see each visitor’s data individually.

- Marketing Cookies: We use marketing cookies to serve you ads and marketing materials that better align to your interests. We also use analytic cookies to understand our marketing cookies and limit the number of times you see an ad, measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and adjust content.

The cookies we use may be deposited either directly by our site and therefore managed by us (first-party cookies); or by partners and service providers, which are therefore managed by third parties (third-party cookies).

How can you manage your cookie preferences?​​​​​​​
From time to time, you will be given the opportunity to allow all cookies, to accept only some cookies, or to reject all cookies (via a cookie banner). The latter option may result in certain personalized services not being provided and you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features offered by our Site.

Some cookies and other tracking devices will be disabled by default, which means that we will seek your permission to activate them. It includes technological functionalities that enable us to locate, identify or profile you.

You can manage your cookie preferences through your browser, such as by uninstalling and blocking certain cookies. Click on your browser below to obtain instructions.

You can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, which prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.
