Who uses cookies?

Our website uses the Google Analytics service to analyze and optimize the operation and display of the website and so improve the user's experience on our site.

Google Analytics is an analytical web service supplied by Google, Inc.

Google Analytics is an analysis tool which helps websites to understand the way in which visitors to their website interact with its features. It may use several cookies to collect information and report the web statistics on website use without personally identifying the visitors.

You can refuse to let your data or information be processed by refusing the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser (as we have explained above, according to which browser you are using).

Google analytics uses different types of cookies:

utma: this cookie creates a unique user ID, which is then used to count the number of times a user visits a website. It also records the first and most recent visits to the website. It is a persistent cookie which may remain on your computer for over two years.

utmb y utmc: these cookies are used to calculate when a session has ended. The utmb records the arrival time on a page while the utmc checks whether the session should remain open or whether a new session should be created.

utmz: this cookie records the source of the user as well as the keywords. It expires at six months, although it renews each time you visit the website, as long as it is not a direct visit.

As well as being able to refuse cookies, you can also install in your browser the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information on your website visits.
