What are cookies and how are they used
Cookies are electronic files that are downloaded onto your computer when you access some websites. By using cookies, a website can store and recover information about the browsing behaviour of a user or his device, and depending on the information they capture and by the way the device is used, they can be used to identify the user.
Users can configure their browser to notify them and reject the cookies sent by the website and will still be able to access its content.
Purpose of the cookies used on this website

If you click over any of the maps with the location of the different places selected by the congress organisation, or over any of the social media widgets, a new window will appear, and the chosen service or social network will store cookies, in those cases, not managed by the congress organisation.
