A cookie is a file stored in your computer when you visit a website (“Cookie” or “cookie”). A cookie contains a string of characters helpful to provide a better experience for you. As a general rule, cookies do not include your personal data or passwords.
The information contained in the cookie allows VIT to customize your experience based on the preferences or interests that you set in place (e.g. language, which could be established according to your browser’s language or based on settings you previously selected on the same site). Cookies also store user preferences and other relevant information to provide a better experience when navigating VIT’s sites.
We use two types of cookies: the first is called “first-party cookies,” which are established by VIT; the second type is referred to as “third-party cookies,” which are established by entities other than VIT. Third-party cookies enable features or functionality such as interactive content depending on your preferences. They allow us to deliver a better user experience based on the devices most used to browse our content, languages frequently used, and to improve effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, known as “Analytics.”
With regards to first-party cookies and third-party cookies, we have “Basic website functionality” cookies; these cookies are used to customize VIT’s sites based on your language or location, as well as to remember the preferences in how the forms, dialogs and other items are displayed.
Despite the aforementioned, some types of cookies are necessary and are used to keep track of whether or not you have accepted or rejected cookies as a means of can preventing the dialog from appearing on each page. These “necessary website cookies” may be blocked or deleted by adjusting your browser settings (click on the “help” section of your browser and learn how to change the cookies preferences). Note: If you disable all cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all features available on VIT’s sites.
VIT does not use personal data in the cookies either for promotion or for marketing purposes, nor will such information be shared with a third party without your previous written consent.
We may modify this policy from time to time in order to be in compliance with the legal, regulatory and operational requirements.
