PERSONAL DATA THAT WE PROCESS
WHAT IS COOKIE
A “cookie” is a file containing a code identifier (a series of letters and numbers) sent by a web server to an Internet browser (e.g. google chrome, safari etc.) and is stored by the latter.
The identifier is then sent back to the web server every time the browser requests a page from the web server.
Cookies may be either “permanent” or ” periodic”.
The “permanent” cookie is stored by the internet browser and will remain until its specified expiration date, unless it is deleted by the user before the expiration date.
The “periodic” cookie expires at the end of the user’s session when the web browser is no longer used.
Cookies may be installed from the site you visit (first party cookies) or from another site (third-party cookies).
