These files are used to customize the content of advertising messages (thanks to which the websites may be used free of charge) to the preferences and behaviours of their users. They also make it possible to assess the effectiveness of advertising campaigns (e.g. by measuring the number of persons who have clicked a given ad and been transferred to the advertiser’s website).

In many cases website browsers accept the storage of cookies on the User’s device by default. Website Users may modify their cookie settings at any time.
