What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that some platforms, such as web pages, may install on your computer, smartphone, tablet or connected television. Their functions can be highly varied: storing your browsing preferences, collecting statistical information, allowing certain technical functionality, and so on. Cookies are sometimes used to store basic information about the browsing habits of the user or their computer, to the extent, depending on the situation, of being able to recognise it.
Why are they important?

They also help those responsible for the websites to improve the services being offered thanks to the statistical information collected on their behalf. Finally, they serve to make the advertising we show you more efficient, which allows us to be able to offer you free services.
