What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit almost all websites. They are stored in your Internet browser. Cookies contain basic information about your use of the Internet, but do not identify you personally. Your browser returns these cookies to the website each time you visit it again, so that it can recognize your computer or mobile device and customize and improve your experience on the site.
We allow some of our advertisers who place ads on our site to set “third-party cookies.” These cookies record information about your use of advertising messages. This is to help advertisers display ads that attract more interest in order to improve your online experience while browsing.
“Session” cookies remain on your computer only when your browser is open and will be deleted automatically when you close your browser. Another type is “persistent cookies”, which remain on your computer or mobile device even after the browser is closed. This allows websites to recognize your computer or mobile device when you later reopen your browser to provide better navigation.
What types of cookies are used?
The cookies we use mainly fall into three categories:
Analytical and customization cookies

Advertising cookies store information on the behavior of users obtained through continuous observation of your browsing habits with the aim to develop a specific profile to display ads based on it. For example, some advertising cookies help us select advertisements based on your interests, while others help us prevent the same ad from appearing again and again. We also want to make sure that it is as easy as possible to share content with your friends through your favorite social networks.
