How can I control cookies?

You have the choice to accept or refuse to accept these cookies. The site will only store cookies on your computer if the site receives your consent. On your first visit, a banner asking if you consent to accept cookies will appear. By giving your permission, the site will store a cookie on your computer, and the banner will not appear anymore as long as the cookie is active.

Session cookies are only stored temporarily while visiting the site and are removed once the visitor leaves the website. The cookie consent will disappear when you log out or close the browser and be prompted on the next visit.

Some of these persistent cookies are third-party cookies from traffic monitoring companies and other external partners contracted to follow your navigation on the site.
