Our Privacy policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, saved in text files that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in (this site does not offer user registration). Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (i.e. “third party cookies”). This website does not utilize neither advertising nor analytics.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons, and some enable a personalized experience for the visitors. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (for example, when the visitor toggles the “Dark mode” switch).

Types of cookies

The list below explains the types of cookies we use on our website and why we use them.

  • Necessary: These cookies are essential for this website to perform its basic functions. These include cookies set by our CDN or web server, or by the platform on which this website runs. We do not control the setting of these types of cookies.
  • Security: Our platform uses these cookies to help identify and prevent potential security risks. We do not control the use of these types of cookies.
  • Functionality: These are the cookies that our website uses. They are used to store preferences set by users, such as switching the color theme, or this website's interface translation, or accepting this cookie policy.

Expiration of cookies

The cookies that are set by the server or the platform on which this website runs are automatically deleted once the browser is closed. In some cases, they have a very short life span, lasting just a few minutes (i.e. they are “session cookies”). The cookies that are used to store your preferences, such as your selection of the color theme, will auto-expire after one year, or when you clear them from your browser (i.e. they are “persistent cookies”). Depending on your browser, to clear your cookies go to History (e.g. CTRL+H) and select 'Clear browsing data'.
