Technical cookies

The use of session cookies (which are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server ) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site.

You can update your preferences at any time using the “Cookies preferences” bar.
