Third-party cookie files installed by our partners allow them to access the information contained in these files (e.g., your browsing statistics). Our partners handle them according to their own privacy and cookie usage policies.
When you use our websites, you may be redirected to other websites to view content hosted on these sites, such as embedded videos or news articles. These websites may use their own cookies.

We save your cookie preferences on a device for 6 months. After this period expires, you will see the banner explaining cookie usage again.
This period may be different for certain browsers, such as Safari or Firefox. After a fixed number of days, these browsers automatically delete cookie files, including the one that retains your cookie preferences.
