WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device when you visit a web page. A cookie usually contains the name of the website of origin, its duration (i.e. the length of time the cookie will remain on your device) and a value (which is usually a randomly generated unique number). The information collected does not identify the user, only the computer used.
Thanks to cookies, SG can, for example, ensure that the information displayed on the screen during the user's next visit to the website is adjusted to the user's preferences. With the help of cookies, SG can also identify the most popular sections of its Website, as they allow SG to know which pages users visit and how long they spend browsing them. Based on this aggregated data, we can adjust our Website to better reflect visitor preferences and provide a more customer-oriented experience. Finally, cookies may facilitate the use of certain third-party applications, such as social media links. The use of this type of technology is common practice, it does not harm the users’ equipment and the different browsers allow each user to have the possibility of refusing its use and/or to proceed with the deletion of those that have already been stored.
WHAT CATEGORIES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?
We may use two types of cookies on our website - "session cookies" and " permanent cookies". Session cookies are temporary and only remain on your device while you are browsing the website. Permanent cookies remain on your device even after you have finished your browsing session.
With regard to their origin, we can also divide cookies into "necessary cookies" and "third-party cookies". Necessary cookies are placed on the Website directly by us to enable its regular navigation, improve its functionality or to meet legal requirements. Third party cookies are cookies that are placed on the Website by third parties chosen by us to support some features of the Website.
As for their division, cookies can be: necessary, functional, analytical, or external functionality.
