How do we use cookies and various technologies?

Some of our pages use cookies to remember: your preferences regarding the display, e.g. brightness or font size if you have already answered a pop-up query, asking if the content was useful or not (so you won’t be asked the same question again), password, if you have agreed (or not) for the use of cookies in this website. Moreover, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to collect statistics on how you got to that point and which videos you visited.
