The number, name, type, purpose and duration of cookies placed on the Site may vary. We will periodically update our cookie and data processing policy to keep you informed.
We use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The latter are temporary files that remain in the user’s terminal until the end of the session or the closing of the application (the web browser). Fixed cookies include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously to store interests to a user, so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to users. Fixed files remain on the user’s terminal for a while in the Cookie’s parameters or until they are deleted manually by the user. Parameters of fixed cookies require that they be kept for varying periods of time ranging from 3 months to 2 years.

DO COOKIES COLLECT PERSONAL DATA?
SECURITY AND PROBLEMS REGARDING CONFIDENTIALITY
Cookies use text-only formats and are not made up of pieces of code, which is why they cannot be executed or can run automatically. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again.
Generally, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of Cookie acceptance, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular Site.
Other Security Issues Related to Cookies:
Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what issues the Cookies can create. In order to transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission path, the information contained in Cookie can be intercepted.
Other Cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to mislead browsers to send information via unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for purposes of unauthorized access to certain Sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
