Which cookies do we use and for what purposes? Our website uses various types of cookies and similar technologies, each of which has a specific function. Below is a table explaining them.

Functional cookies are not essential to the functioning of the website, but rather improve navigation quality and experience.

Milaura treats the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes only if the service provider uses the cookies to connect to the browser used or other devices used to navigate on the website.
