Extended cookie policy

Cookies consist of portions of code (computer files or partial data) sent by a server to the user’s Internet browser, stored by that browser automatically on the user’s computer and automatically sent to the server at each occurrence or subsequent access to the site. A cookie usually contains the name of the website from which the cookie comes from, the life span of the cookie (that’s how long it will remain on the user’s device) and a value, which is usually a unique, randomly generated number. When the user returns the cookies are sent back to the website that created them (first-¬party cookies) or another site that recognises them (third¬-party cookies). Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the user’s device and have different purposes such as, for example, allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your favourite website and, in general, improving the browsing experience. They also help to ensure that the advertising content displayed online is more targeted to users and their interests.

If the user decides to disable cookies, this may affect and/or limit their browsing experience on the site. For example, they might not be able to visit certain sections of a site or may not receive personalised information when visiting the sites.
