1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files or information stored on your computer or mobile device (e.g. smartphones and tablets) when you visit our Sites. A cookie usually includes the name of the website it came from, the cookie’s ‘lifetime’ (i.e. how long the cookie will be stored on your computer) and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

 

2. Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to facilitate the use of our sites and better customize both the sites and our products depending on your interests and needs. Cookies allow us to do so because web sites can read and write the files, which enables them to recognize you and remember important information, thus making your use of a website more convenient (for instance by remembering your preferences).

Cookies may also be used to accelerate your future activities and visits of our sites. We also use cookies to collect anonymous aggregated statistics that allow us to understand the way users use our Sites and help us improve the structure and content of our Sites.

 

3. What type of cookies do we use?

Two type of cookies may be used on the Sites: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies.’ Session cookies are temporary cookies that stay on your device until you leave the Site. A persistent cookie stays on your device for a much longer period of time, or until you manually delete it (depending on the cookie’s ‘lifetime.’)
