The general legal framework regulating the protection of personal data is provided by the General Data Protection Regulation No. 679/2016 (“GDPR”) in force in the European Union, and the Cookies Policy results from its requirements.
What are cookies?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser Cookies”, “HTTP cookie” or “cookies”) is a small file of letters and numbers stored on computers, mobile terminals or other user devices through which the user has access to Internet.
Cookies are installed on request, emitted by a web server in the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome). Once installed, cookies have a long life, but remain “passive”, meaning they do not contain viruses or spyware and will not be able to access information on the user’s hard drive on whose device they are installed.
A cookie consists of two parts:
– names and
– file content or value.
Storing cookies on your computer allows us to easily and conveniently personalize and improve your reception of our website and make your next visit to the website more enjoyable.
How to manage COOKIE MODULES?
Rejecting other categories of cookies may not affect the users’ reception of the website and its functionality. If you do not agree to the use of all cookie categories, essential and third-party cookies will be deactivated. In addition, cookies will be deleted. We will not be able to delete third party cookies and you will therefore have to delete them yourself. This can be done in the browser settings.
Deactivation and / or deletion of cookies from the browser
Furthermore, cookie settings can be changed via the internet browser. The web browser allows you to edit cookie settings. These settings are usually available in the browser menu: “options”, “tools” or “preferences” menu. You can also refer to the “Help” menu of your browser. Browsers may use various mechanisms to disable cookies.

The same rules apply to your browser settings for the deletion of cookies as for the deactivation of new cookies. Please follow the instructions described above.
