Extended cookie information
Cookies are small text files sent by a web-server – such as the website – to the user’s internet browser and from this sent back to the web-server at each subsequent access to the site. In other words, websites generally collect small amounts of information about the user’s activity on the site in which he is browsing. This information is precisely contained in that text file known as a “cookie”, stored on the user’s personal computer.
In order to ensure the best possible navigation, the websites offer the best performance with cookies enabled. Thanks to cookies, the site “remembers” the user when he returns to that website, manages to identify and resolve errors, providing faster and more specific navigation. Additional data, of a personal nature and independent of cookies, can only be stored through an explicit consent of the user, such as, for example, when registering on a site to attend a distance training course by filling out the appropriate registration form, whose personal information is necessary to complete the administrative procedures required by current regulations in terms of ECM (continuing education in medicine).
Cookies cannot cause damage to the user’s computer. Infomedica also very carefully selects all third-party suppliers who can set cookies for marketing purposes.
If cookies are deemed useful in other cases than those set out above, the purpose of their use will be communicated from time to time and, if necessary, explicitly authorized by the visitor.
The user can decide to allow or not the setting of cookies on their computer, but this website works optimally with all types of cookies enabled. The settings regarding cookies can be controlled and modified from the browser’s “Preferences”.
By clicking below, depending on the browser you are using, you will get information on how to change the cookie settings on your PC, it being understood that each browser – and often different versions of the same browser – also differ significantly from each other:

- Still under discussion are third-party statistical cookies (eg Google Analytics), if the data is anonymized before being saved by the third-party service.
