Some of the cookies we use are necessary to enable browsing within the website and to use its features, such as access to secure areas and content for registered users.

We also use functional cookies to record information about the options selected when entering our website and to personalise it for visitors. For example, to remember the language or region of origin, or to see if a survey has been completed.

We, or our service providers, also use analytical services to help us understand how effective our content is or what interests our users have, as well as to improve the functioning of the website. In addition, we use web beacons or tracking pixels to count the number of visits, as well as so-called performance cookies that allow us to track how many users access our website and how often. This information is used for statistical purposes only and is not our intention to use it to personally identify users.
