What are cookies anyway?
Cookies are small files that are used to access the internet and that are stored on a User's computer, mobile device, tablet or other equipment .
Cookies are installed by a request sent from the server of a web page to your web browser (for example: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Mozilla) and are completely "passive" (they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and do not access information from the User's hardware).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used to make the Website function better and more efficiently. Cookies are necessary to enable you to navigate around the Website and to use its services and features. Without these essential cookies, the Website will not work as well as we would like and we may not be able to provide you with certain services or features.
Cookies are also used in the preparation of anonymous statistics that help us understand how a User prefers to use the Website and our Mobile Apps, allowing us to improve their structure and content without identifying the User.
What types of cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies - session cookies and fixed cookies. The former are temporary files that remain on the User's device until the end of the User's session or until the Website (or web browser) is closed. Fixed files remain on the User's device for the period established by the cookies or until manually deleted by the User.
Their purpose is to make the Website work the way you expect. For example, we use a cookie to find out if you have registered your User Account.

Security and Privacy
Cookies are NOT viruses! They take the form of plain text. They are not made up of code, so they cannot be executed and cannot run themselves. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to be run or copied again. Since cookies cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Typically, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, expiration periods, and automatic deletion once a User has visited a site.
