• User identification (WC_AUTHENTICATION_<userid>, WC_USERACTIVITY_<userid>): These cookies serve to identify and authenticate users. They also contain user-specific technical data about the session, such as timeout limits, session identifier, etc.
• HTTP Session (JSESSIONID, "Local storage"): These cookies serve to identify the user’s http session. They are common to all website applications and they serve to identify user queries during a session.
• They identify user sessions (symfony): These cookies are used to store user session data.
• Google (PREF, NID): Google trackers and secure cookies. Google’s NID and PREF are set by browsers to protect users against known intruders when they enter a site. If you enter any such site, these cookies will allow your browser to take action or display a notification. Users may block these cookies by disabling 'Secure Browsing'.
• Sharing contents with Adthis (_atuvc): This function allows visitors to share a page with Facebook or Twitter, via email or through other means. This function provides information to an external company, called AddThis, which uses a cookie to gather anonymous information when you enter these sites. Although our websites do not show ads, AddThis may use the non-identifying information gathered while you are visiting these sites in order to allow other sites target you with ads for goods and services you have expressed an interest in.
• Facebook (_datr): This security system, called “Delta”, checks each login if the user account is being fraudulently used by a third party.

Twitter can also track the browsing habits of users who do not have a Twitter account and who have never visited Twitter. If you ever use the same browser to create a Twitter account, the data gathered in the past may be (in theory) linked to the recently created profile. This cookie has a permanence of two years after the profile creation.
