What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your computer when a website is visited by a user. The text stores information that the site is able to read at a later time. Some of these cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site, others are useful to the visitor because they can safely store for example the username or language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed on your PC is that you no longer need to fill out the same information whenever you want to access a previously visited site.
Some cookies are extremely useful because they can make browsing more pleasant for the user when visiting a website already consulted other times. If you use the same device and browser, cookies can, for example, remember your preferences, help us understand how to use our sites, and make the displayed content more relevant to your interests and needs.

Types of cookies
Cookies are categorized as follows.
- Session cookies Are stored on the user’s computer for mere technical-functional needs, for the transmission of session identifiers necessary to enable safe and efficient site navigation; they delete at the end of the “session” (hence the name) with the browser closing. This type of cookie avoids the use of other computer techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of users’ browsing.
- Persistent cookies Remain stored on your computer’s hard drive until they expire or are deleted by users/visitors. Persistent cookies allow visitors who access the site (or any other users using the same computer) are automatically recognized on each visit. Persistent cookies meet many features in the interests of surfers (such as using the navigation language or registering the shopping cart in online purchases). However, persistent cookies can also be used for promotional purposes or even for purposes of dubious legality. Visitors can set up the computer’s browser so that it accepts/rejects all cookies or displays an alert whenever a cookie is proposed, in order to be able to consider whether to accept it or not. The user is enabled, however, to change the default configuration (by default) and disable cookies (i.e. block them permanently), setting the highest level of protection.
- Third-party cookies cookies stored on behalf of third parties and may in turn be session or persistent.

When another website containing this type of plug-in is accessed from the Sites, the browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers and sends this data to Facebook. This happens regardless of whether you are a member of Facebook, logged in to sites as a member of Facebook or clicked the plug-in. If you are a member of Facebook and are connected to Facebook while you are on the Sites, Facebook will insert your visit to the Sites on your Facebook account, even if you do not click the social plug-in. If, however, you click the plug-in, this information will be transmitted to your Facebook account, where it will be stored. We do not know in detail which of your data will be transmitted to Facebook or for what purpose Facebook will use that data. This data includes your IP address, Facebook information on the site you have visited, the date and time of your visit and other browser-related information. If you enter the Sites while you are still connected to Facebook, your login identification number will also be collected and processed and Facebook will assign this visit to your Facebook account. If you do not want Facebook to collect your personal information through the Sites, you must log out of Facebook before visiting the Sites.
