What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

Europa Analytics is the corporate service which measures the effectiveness and efficiency of the EU institutions' web sites. It is managed by the European Commission on behalf of all EU institutions and bodies. By default, visitors to this site are tracked using first-party persistent cookies from Curia (curia.europa.eu).
It uses an open-source analytics platform, Piwik, fully controlled by the European Commission. This platform enables the protection of end-user personal data thanks to features such as IP address de-identification and a mechanism for users to opt-out so that their browsing is not processed for analytics purposes.
You may choose not to be tracked by Piwik (opt-out). If you change your mind, you can choose to be tracked again by Piwik (opt-in).
Choosing not to be tracked by Piwik does not affect your navigation experience on the Curia web site.
