Euractiv.com Cookie Policy

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies that identify you when you’re logged in, that give you the possibility to comment using your profile and also to edit your newsletter preferences.

We also use anonymous cookies that tell us where do our users come from and what pages they visit. These cookies sometimes collect anonymous statistics about the user (such as gender, age, interests) and the data is stored by the analytics services that we use. These cookies also gather data about a person’s behaviour on our website: what pages they visit, how long they stay on the page, what videos they watch or files they download.

Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. You can also opt out using tools like this one.
