Cookies

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. 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 you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages can use cookies to remember:

  • your actions, for online behavioural advertising or security purposes
  • your authentification details thus you do not have to re-enter it
  • information about your locations
  • statistical information about usage by users
  • if you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this website

Also, some videos, embedded in our pages, use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.

Enabling 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 that, some features of this website 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. Cookies are text files saved on the website visitor’s computer, allowing the recognition of an anonymous user.

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from the moment a user opens the browser window until they exit the browser) or they can be stored for a longer period. Our website applies to both types of cookies:

  • session cookies – are temporary cookies which allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. We use session cookies to carry information across pages of our site and avoid you having to re-enter information each time you enter a new page. These session cookies expire after a browser session, so they would not be stored on a longer term. For this reason, session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies
  • persistent cookies – are stored on a user’s device between browser sessions which allow the preferences or actions of the user across a website to be remembered. This type of cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser even after the browser is closed and the length of time depends on its lifespan. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including security of the website, increasing the speed of accessing pages, statistical evaluation, remembering users preferences when using a website or to target advertising
  • first and third party cookies – whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies, in basic terms, are cookies set by a website visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third party cookie. The website may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. On some pages, third parties may set their own cookies anonymously in order to track the success of an application, or to customize an application. Due to the way of using it, this website can’t access these cookies, the same as third parties can’t access cookies owned by this website. For example, when you distribute an article using the social networking located on this website, the social network will record your activity. We do not provide any information about our customers to advertisers or third-party websites. These third-party websites and advertisers, or internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or serve) the advertisements that appear on the website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalise advertising content. We do not have access or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this document. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the network advertising initiative offers useful information about internet advertising companies (also called ‘ad networks’ or ‘network advertisers’), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection. Please note that we exclude all liability for loss that you may incur when using these third party websites.

If you need any more information or you have any comments about our cookies, please write to us by email through our Contact page.

The only required data for registration are those related to the company represented by the user, such as the company name and description, contact details (address, phone, fax, e-mail, social networks) and representative`s name (optional). We never ask for credit card numbers or any personal information. We have a variety of security measures when a user enters the data, submits, or accesses the website like encryption via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

PayPal is number 1 worldwide in online transactions, concerning security and confidentiality of its transactions.
