Cookies are small text strings that the sites you visit send to the browser, where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same sites on the next visit by the same user. While browsing a site, you can also receive cookies on your terminal that are sent from different sites or web servers (so-called "third parties"), on which some elements may reside (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds , specific links to pages from other domains) on the site you are visiting. The law states that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your permission.

They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into navigation or session cookies, which guarantee the normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas);
