What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
What type of cookies do we use and why?
We use limited cookies for the purposes mentioned in our cookie management solution that you can access clicking on the red cookie icon or by clicking the relevant link available to you on our Website. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to those as “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies are optional and enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our Website. Third parties may serve cookies through our Website for analytics and other purposes.

We use optional cookies only if you give us your prior explicit consent in our cookie management solution. You can withdraw your consent at any time simply by visiting the preference center in our cookie management solution (please see next section). For strictly necessary cookies, which cannot be deactivated because they are essential for our Website to operate, we rely on our legitimate interest to operate a functionally secure Website.

You can change your cookie preferences and withdraw your prior consent at any time by using our cookie management solution that you can access by clicking the relevant link (typically available at the footer of our website) or by clicking on the red cookie icon in our website.
