Cookies are small strings of text that your browser stores when you visit a particular website, including ours.

Types of cookies

Our website uses different types of cookies, each of which has a specific function, as follows.


Essential” cookies are those cookies that are strictly necessary to enable certain requested functionality. Some features of soleterre.org would not work without the use of such cookies, so not only would the user’s experience on the site be affected, but also the ability to do something useful. Cookies that are essential for the use of a website are exempt from being communicated to the user under the EU Directive (2009/136), but we want you to be fully informed about them.


They allow certain parts of the site to function. Their purpose concerns the maintenance of an active session between the user and the site and the preference of the language chosen by the user. These cookies are stored within the browser, and it is possible to delete or disable their reception, but this may affect the functionality of some website services. It is not necessary to obtain the user’s consent for the use of these cookies.
