The session cookies used in this website avoid the use of other IT techniques potentially able to jeopardize the private nature of the user navigation activities and do not allow the acquisition of personal data able to identify the user.

This cookie lasts 90 days.

When the "fr" cookie is installed, Facebook and/or LinkedIn are able to track the navigation behavior across other websites that have applied a Facebook pixel and/or LinkedIn pixel and provide aggregate and therefore anonymous data.
