Types of Cookies
There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way, but have small differences:
(a) Session Cookies. Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. Their main purpose is to identify the type of device, support website security or basic functionality. They do not contain personal information that would allow us to identify an individual.
b) Persistent or Permanent Cookies: They are stored on the hard drive of the device and our website reads them every time you make a new visit to it; they have an expiry date or expiration date, after which the cookie stops working. They allow us to identify your actions and preferences; analyse visits and help us to understand how users reach our site and improve our services.
c) Functionality Cookies: These allow us to remember decisions made by the user, such as their login or identifier. The information these cookies collect is anonymised (i.e. it does not contain your name, address or other data).
d) Third Party Cookies. Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a website that is not the one you are visiting; for example, those used by social networks (such as Facebook) or by external content plugins (such as Google Maps).
In addition, some advertising companies use this type of file to track your visits to each site on which they advertise.

The advantages of accepting our cookies translate into time savings. They can also be used to recognise you between successive visits and so tailor the content shown to you, to obtain information about the date and time of your last visit, to measure some traffic parameters within the site itself, and to estimate the number of visits made, so that we can target and tailor services and promotions more effectively.
No cookie allows us to contact your phone number, email address or any other means of contact. No cookie can extract information from your hard drive or steal personal information.
