THE COMPANY shall at all times strive to establish adequate mechanisms to obtain the User’s consent for installing any cookies that require it. However, in accordance with the law, (i) the User shall be deemed to have given consent if he/she adjusts his/her browser settings to disable the restrictions that prevent the installation of cookies, and (ii) said consent shall not be required for the installation of cookies that are strictly necessary to provide a service expressly requested by the User (via prior registration).

Social network cookies
Special buttons are included to make it easier for users to share Website content on a variety of social networks.

Users can adjust the settings of their browsers to receive a warning whenever a site attempts to place cookies and block their installation. However, disabling these cookies may affect the functionality of the website. Please refer to your browser’s instructions and user manual to find out more.
Depending on the browser used, the User can also enable any of the following options to restrict the scope of the installed cookies or their functions:
– private browsing, during which the browser ceases to record the user’s browsing history, website passwords, cookies and other data from the visited websites; or
– “do not track” mode, under which the browser requests visited websites not to track browsing activity to, for example, serve relevant advertisements on visited websites.
Some cookies used on the Website may not be associated with THE COMPANY because third-party content (e.g. YouTube videos) is embedded into certain pages. Since this content comes from other websites, the settings of these cookies are beyond THE COMPANY’s control. Please go to the third parties’ websites if you wish to adjust these settings.
If you wish to exercise greater control on the installation of cookies, you can install programs or browser plugins known as “do not track” tools that allow you to choose which cookies to enable.
