I. Cookies (Connection Testimonies)

Like most websites, for our site to function properly, we occasionally install small files called cookies or connection testimonies on your device (computer or mobile device).

II. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website installs on your computer or mobile device when you visit it. These files allow the website to “remember” your actions and preferences for a certain period, such as your username, chosen language, font size, and other display settings. This is why, when browsing pages or returning to a site you’ve visited before, you generally don’t need to re-enter your preferences.

III. Why do we use cookies?

The most recent version of Law 41/2004 requires that access to information stored on a subscriber’s or user’s terminal equipment be allowed only if clear and complete information about the purposes of the processing is provided to the subscriber or user. However, the same directive exempts technical storage or access that has the exclusive purpose of carrying out or facilitating the transmission of communication over an electronic communications network.

IV. What types of cookies can you find on our website?
