Cookies are small text files that are stored on the visitor's computer and which make it possible to follow what the visitor does on the website. No personal information, like the visitor's email address or name, is saved in the actual cookie files. There are two types of cookies:

  1. a permanent cookie that remains in the visitor's computer for a determined time.
  2. a session cookie that is stored temporarily in the computer's memory while the visitor is inside a webpage. It disappears when you turn off your web browser.

We use session cookies, i.e. the cookie stays there until you turn off your web browser or until you have been inactive so long that you are "thrown out" from the service. Several of our services require cookies in order to work but if you don't accept that cookies are used, you can block them in your web browser's security settings. You can also set the web browser so that you are asked every time the website tries to put a cookie on your computer. Your web browser can also delete cookies that have been stored previously; see the web browser's help pages for more information.
