1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit.  We use the term “cookies” in this Cookies Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way. There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your preferences, analyse how well the Website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the Website.

Cookies do not cause any damage to the terminal, but make it easier, for example, to find preferences, pre-fill certain fields and adapt the content of the services on the site visited. Such data allows the improvement of ergonomics and services according to your interests.
