COOKIE MANAGEMENT POLICY

Information on cookies

What is a cookie?

Cookies are data stored on the Internet user’s computer terminal, used to send information to the Internet user’s browser, enabling this browser to send information to the original website (for example a session login, choice of language or date).

Cookies are small text files that are installed on your computer or device when you visit our Website. They are mostly used to enable the Website to function, or function more efficiently, but also to provide information to Website owners.

Only the issuer of a cookie can read or modify the information contained in it.

The Website you are visiting uses trackers (cookies). The site is therefore likely to access information already stored on your electronic communications terminal and to record information there. Cookies enable, for the period of validity of the cookie concerned, retention of status information when a browser accesses the different pages of a website or when the browser comes back to this website later.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to facilitate your use of the Website and to adapt it and our products to your interests and needs (such as language or country). Cookies can be used to accelerate your future activities and experience on our Website. Our cookies enable us to generate anonymous and aggregated statistics that help us understand how users use our Website and help us improve its structure and content.

We do not retain any information that will identify you personally in our cookie data relating to you. We only save a unique session login that will help us identify a user profile and your preferences the next time you visit.

We do not store sensitive personal information in the cookies we use.

Who uses the data stored in the cookies?

The information stored in the cookies from our site is only used by us, with the exception of cookies called “third party cookies”, which are used and managed by external entities to provide services to us that we have requested, in order to improve our services and the user’s browsing experience.

“Third party cookies” are essentially used to give us access statistics.

What types of cookie do we use?

The cookies used by the Website fall into two categories:

  • cookies that are strictly necessary, which do not require your prior consent;
  • cookies subject to your prior consent, used for audience measurement;
  • social media sharing cookies;

1 – Cookies exempt from prior consent

We use cookies to enable and facilitate your browsing experience on the Website to:

  • save your browsing preferences such as your language, font size, page presentation or favourite colours;
  • enable you to browse our site more quickly and easily.

These cookies cannot technically be deactivated from the site. You can however object to use of these cookies by configuring your browser. The configuration depends on the browser you use, but it’s generally easy to do: in principle you can either activate a private browser function or prohibit or restrict cookies.

It may be that cookies have been saved on your device before configuring your browser: in this case, delete your browsing history, using your browser configuration.

2 – Cookies subject to your prior consent

The Website uses cookies under our control and others placed under the control of third parties, which are subject to your prior consent.

We use these cookies for:

  • Collecting analytical information to count the number of visitors to our site and identify the pages on our sites you visit most often. We use the analysis data we collect for marketing and resource planning purposes,
  • and for determining whether our clients and visitors can easily adapt to the changes we make to our Website.

Types of cookies

Session cookies Cookies of this type are temporarily stored on your computer or your device during a browsing session. They are deleted from your computer or device at the end of the browsing session.

Permanent cookies Cookies of this type stay on your computer for a long time. Permanent cookies help us recognise you when we need to identify you for more than one browsing session.

Analytical cookies These help us analyse what is happening on our site so that we can improve performance and the way we present our content to you. They measure your browsing (pages consulted most often, exit pages from our site, length of visit, etc.). The data stored by these cookies can be seen only by the teams working on the Website, but no confidential information is saved.

Sharing cookies (social media)

Our site contains links to Facebook, Twitter and other similar social media, which shares the content from our site with other people. When you use these sharing buttons, a third party cookie is installed. If you are connected to social media when browsing on our site, the sharing buttons connect the content consulted to your user account.

Cookie management

The menu on most browsers contains options for you to manage your cookies by adjusting or configuring your cookie settings. Most browsers are configured by default and accept cookies.

Generally, the browser offers you the possibility of:

  • displaying your cookies;
  • authorising cookies;
  • deactivating all cookies, or only specific cookies;
  • deactivating all cookies when you close your browser;
  • blocking cookies;
  • being informed when you receive a cookie.
  • You can also regularly delete cookies from your terminal via your browser.

Please note that if you choose to block our cookies, some of the functionalities on our Websites will be deactivated (in particular services such as shopping basket, management or customisation of orders) and your browsing might also be affected, for which we cannot be held liable.

If you configure the options on your browser to delete all cookies, your browsing preferences will be deleted when you close your browser.

If you object to the installation or use of a cookie, a refusal cookie is installed on your terminal. Therefore, if you delete this refusal cookie, it will no longer be possible to identify you as having refused the use of cookies. In the same way, when you consent to installation of cookies, a consent cookie is installed. If you want to continue benefiting from this choice, you should leave these cookies installed on your terminal.

Configuring cookies from different browsers: simply go to the help menu on your browser to find out how to change your cookie preferences.
