What is a “cookie”?
A “cookie” is a small text file that generally includes a unique and anonymous identifier. When visiting a website, the server for that website requests permission from your computer to store this file on your hard drive in a location specifically designated for “cookies”. Each website can send its own “cookies” to your Internet browser when the preferences of that browser allow. However, to protect your privacy, browsers do not allow a website to access a “cookie” that was created by another website and that is present on your hard drive.
Usually, Internet browsers are configured by default to accept “cookies”. On the other hand, if you wish not to receive them, you can always modify the configuration of your browser. Please note that if you make these configuration changes, it is possible that certain areas or functionalities of our site are not displayed correctly or cannot be used.
