So that this site functions correctly, sometimes we install in the users’ devices small data files called cookies. The majority of the large websites also do this.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that websites install on a user’s device. Cookies allow websites to remember users’ actions and preferences (initial login, language, letter size, and other visual preferences) so that they do not have to reconfigure the settings every time they return to the site or surf its pages.
On some pages we use the following cookies:
- Google Analytics: used by Google to follow the user’s behavior.
- YouTube: used by YouTube (Google) to store user preferences.
- Google Maps: used by Google to obtain information on user location.
Even though the cookies are not essential to the functioning of the website, if they are enabled, there is a better navigation experience. Cookies can be erased or blocked, but if this is done, it is possible that some of the web features won’t work properly.
The information associated with the cookies is not used to personally identify the user. Furthermore, we keep navigation pattern data under our control. These cookies are used exclusively for the previously mentioned purposes.
How to control the cookies
You can control or erase the cookies as you wish: for more information, consult aboutcookies.org. Besides being able to delete all the cookies that you find on your computer, you can also configure the majority of the search engines to not accept them. But keep in mind that, if cookies are not rejected, you might have to return to manually configure your preferences each time you visit a site and it’s possible that certain services and functions will not work.
