Cookies are enabled by default by most browsers. We have nevertheless included a section after this paragraph with instructions on how to modify the settings of Your cookies.
Please note that cookies will not damage Your computer. We do not retain any personal data that can identify the User in the cookies We generate, but We use encrypted data collected by same to improve and ensure top quality browsing of the DYV Community.

Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential for you to move around the DYV Community and to use its features, such as for instance access to its restricted areas. Without these cookies We cannot provide the Services you may request.
Strictly necessary cookies are used to store a unique identifier in order to manage and identify Users from all the other Users visiting the DYV Community at that same moment, and to provide Users with a consistent and accurate Service.
Some examples include:
- Memorizing previous actions of Users (for example, entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session;
- Management and passage of security tokens for different Services within the DYV Community to identify the status of the User (e.g. registered or unregistered);
- Maintenance of tokens to use restricted areas of the DYV Community;
- Routing of Users towards specific versions or applications, as may be necessary during a technical migration process;
These cookies can be first-party or third party, session or persistent cookies. Their use is limited to and aimed at the performance and improvement of the DYV Community features. These cookies collect information on how a User uses the DYV Community, such as the pages he/she visited. These cookies do not collect information that can identify You. All information collected by these cookies are aggregated into anonymous form and are only used to improve the functionality of the DYV Community.
Some examples include:
- Web Analytics - collected data are solely used by operators of the DYV Community to manage the structure and performance of the DYV Community. These cookies may be third-party cookies, but collected information is used solely by those in charge of operating a visited website;
- Affiliate tracking - cookies are used solely to allow affiliates to know that a User of the DYV Community visited a partner website at a later date and if such a visit resulted in the use or purchase of a product or service, including the details of the product and service purchased. Affiliate tracking cookies allow the affiliate to improve the performance of it own website;
- Error Handling - Measurement of errors that occur on the DYV Community. This function will usually support the improvement of Services and will generally be strictly linked to web analytics;
- Testing of different page structures - Tests on variations in the structure of the DYV Community, normally using A/B or multivariate tests, to ensure that the DYV Community maintains a consistent layout and aspect for Users during current and subsequent sessions.
These cookies can be first party, third party, session or persistent. These cookies are usually the result of an action bu a User, but they can also be implemented when providing a Service not specifically requested by, but simply offered to, Users. They can also be used to prevent a previously offered and rejected Service from being proposed again to the same User. Furthermore, these cookies allow the DYV Community to remember Users’ choices (such as username, language, country of origin, etc ...). All information gathered by these cookies is anonymous and cannot track the bahvaiour of Users on other websites.
Some examples include:
- remembering the settings that a User has applied to the DYV Community, such as layout, font size, preferences, colours, etc.;
- remembering a choice so that Users are no longer requested to fill out a questionnaire.
- detect if a Service has already been offered to a User, such as for instance, offering a tutorial during subsequent visits to the DYV Community;
- respond to a User’s request, such as submitting a comment.
