What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website. It enables this website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to this website or browse from one page to another.
The three types of cookies we use and how we use them:
1. Strictly necessary cookies:

The data which is collected is anonymous and does not contain any information that could identify you. These cookies are provided by our third party analytics tool provider (Google Analytics) and the information obtained through these cookies will be disclosed to, or collected directly by, this third party service provider.

3. Social network cookies:
They relate to services provided by third parties, such as “like” and “share” buttons from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. They are used to provide you with services or to remember your sharing preferences for social networks. We use these social network cookies in order to create links from/to your social networks and to allow you to identify yourself to these social networks when the share option is activated. The social network that provides the application button may use it to identify you, even if you have not used the button whilst browsing our website. Indeed, this type of application button can allow the social network in question to understand your navigation of our website, solely based on the fact that the social network in question is activated on your device (open session) as you are browsing our website. We have no control over the processes used by social networks to collect information relating to your browsing of our website that is linked to the personal data they hold. We would ask you to consult the privacy protection policy for these social networks in order to understand the implications of using them, particularly in terms of advertising and the browsing information they can gather using application buttons. These protection policies should specifically allow you to modify your choices relating to these social networks, by changing the settings on your user accounts for each of these networks. You can choose to accept or refuse these cookies, but refusal may prevent from you gaining access to certain sharing and social interaction functionalities.
