Cookie Notice

How do we use Cookies or similar tools?

We use different technologies to provide and optimize our online services, as well as to allow us and third parties engaged by us to recognize you during your use of our website, and possibly to track you across several visits.

We do not intend to determine your identity, even if that is possible where we or third parties can identify you by combination with your registration data. However, even without registration data, the technologies we use are designed in such a way that you are recognized as an individual visitor each time you access the website, for example by our server (or third-party servers) that assign a specific identification number to you or your browser (so-called «cookie»).

What are Cookies?

Cookies are individual codes (for example a serial number) that our server or a server of our service providers or advertising partners transmits to your system when you connect to our website, and that your system (browser, cell phone) accepts and stores until the set expiration time. Your system transmits these codes to our server or third-party server. In this way, you are recognized even if your identity is unknown.

What types of cookies do we use?

We can also use these cookies to set up essential functionalities to guarantee the security and efficiency of the service requested, such as authentication and load balancer request. These cookies exist temporarily only («session cookies»). If you block them, the website may not work properly.

Functional cookies can be first party cookies or third-party cookies. Before we use such cookies, we ask for your consent.
  • Performance cookies: In order to optimize our website and related offers and to better adapt them to the needs of the users, we use cookies to record and analyze the use of our website, potentially beyond one session. We use third-party analytics services for this purpose.
