This website uses its own cookies and third parties to provide visitors with a better navigation experience and services tailored to the needs and interests of each. These cookies may come from the following third parties: Google Analytics, Google Adsense, etc. The full list of cookies from third parties can be found in the Third Party Cookies section below.
In what we call "web 2.0," "cookies" play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of multiple services the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:
- Customize settings such as the language in which the site is viewed.
- Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users so they can make them more effective and more user-friendly.

What is a "Cookie" ?
An "Internet Cookie" (also known as "cookie browser" or "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user on which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through a web browser's browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and is completely "passive" (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the hard drive user drive).
A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. Furthermore, the duration of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.
There are 2 large categories of cookies:
- Session cookies - are temporarily stored in the web browser's cookie folder so that can save them until the user exits the site or closes the browser window (for example, when logging in / out of an account webmail or social networking).
- Persistent Cookies - are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depends on the cookie's default life). Persistent cookies include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as 'third party cookies' - which can be used anonymously to store a user's interests so as to deliver advertising as relevant to users.
What are the advantages of cookies?
A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a good browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: ex - online privacy preferences, site language options or relevant advertising.
What is the lifetime of a cookie?
Cookies are managed by web servers. The life of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and re-used whenever the user returns to that site ('cookie- permanent '). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.
What are cookies placed by third parties?
Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties (eg advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third-party vendors must also comply with the applicable law and the site's privacy policies.

Cookies for Visitor Analysis
Cookies for advertising
These cookies let us know whether or not you have viewed an online ad, what is its type, and how long it has been since you saw the ad message. These cookies are also used to target online advertising. We may also use 3rd-party cookies for better advertising targeting, for example, showing holiday ads if the user has recently visited an article on vacancies. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the viewed content, not the users. We also set up anonymous cookies through other sites that we advertise. By accepting them, we can use them to recognize you as a visitor to that site if you later visit our site, we will be able to deliver advertising based on this information.
The advertising you find on this site belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an ad, or to see how many people have been exposed multiple times to the same ad. The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies and this site does not have access to read or write these cookies. Third-party cookies can be used to show your target advertising on other sites, based on your browsing on this site.
Other cookies of third parties
On some pages, third parties can set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of an application, or to customize an application. Because of its use, this site can not access these cookies, just as third parties can not access cookies owned by this site.
