Cookies: what are they

A cookie is a tiny text file that a website puts on your hard disk in order to remember something about you at a later time. Cookies will record your preferences when visiting a particular site and are commonly used for statistical or advertising purposes.

Does our website meet the EU law?

When you access our website for the first time, you will see a small window opening in the lower right hand side of the page. This window has two buttons: one to agree (in which case you won't be bothered again for 90 days) and another one leading to this page with general information about cookies and our policy.

Cookies! I hate them!

A few years ago, when they first appeared, in 1994, the cookies quickly became the subject of urban legends which blamed them for a long series of nasty activities (some even said they could made you gain weight).

But the browsers designers were quick to respond and rapidly introduced plenty of options to watch, control and even disable cookies.

How to disable cookies?

In the menu bar, go to Tools, Internet Options; click on the Privacy tab on top. Move the slider up to the "Block all Cookies" button.

The Tools menu will also allow you to browse without any tracks by clicking on the option InPrivate Navigation; and the option erasing “History” will also erase the cookies (be careful though as many of the sites you usually frequent use cookies to store information about your preferences.

In older versions, just access the Internet Options menu through the Control Panel.

Mozilla Firefox:
In the Tools menu, choose Options and go to the privacy Tab where you will be able to disable the cookies by un-marking the corresponding box and tweat other cookie-related options.
