3. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are saved on a user’s electronic device (PC, tablet, etc.) when navigating a website; they provide certain information (‘cookies’). Cookies are then sent to the original website during subsequent navigation or to a different website that is capable of recognizing that specific cookie. Cookies act like memory for a website, allowing it to recognize the device used upon each subsequent visit. Cookies also store the user’s navigating preferences, offering a more functional experience and personalizing the website content as much as possible. In particular, the information collected via some cookies, better specified in the section ‘Types of Cookies’, may be shared with the International Olympic Committee (‘IOC’) following the user’s express consent given via the cookies banner on the website. The IOC will process the above-mentioned data for its own statistical, marketing and profiling analysis based on the indications in its own Privacy Policy available at the following link.
