COOKIE POLICY

What are cookies?
To make our website work properly, we place small data files called cookies on your device.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. The cookie cannot identify you personally, but only the web browser that is installed on your computer and the web browser you use when visiting the webpage. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so that you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or when you browse from one page to another. Cookies do not carry viruses and cannot destroy any other information stored on your computer. The cookies are stored on your computer for six months and then deleted.

How do we use cookies?
A number of our pages use cookies to remember
• your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size;
• if you have already replied to a survey pop-up that asks you if the content was helpful or not (so you won't be asked again);
• and if you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site 

Furthermore, some videos embedded in our pages use cookies to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited. In this case, the use of these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work, but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do some features of this site may not work as intended. The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here. Consequently, none of the information that we collect through the use of cookies can identify you personally. Furthermore, we never disclose, sell or in any other way transfer the information to any third parties.

How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, please see aboutcookies.org. Most web browsers have a default setting that accepts the use of cookies, but you can delete all cookies which are already saved on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed on your computer in the first place. If you do so, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site, and some services and functionalities may not work properly.
