Information about cookies

What is a cookie?

Cookies are data stored on a user’s terminal equipment and used to send information to the user’s browser, allowing the browser to send information back to the originating site (e.g., a session ID, language choice, or date).

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

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

The site you are visiting uses cookies. Thus, the site is likely to access information already stored in your electronic communication terminal equipment and to write information to it. Cookies make it possible to retain, for the duration of the validity of the cookie concerned, status information when a browser accesses the various pages of a website or when this browser returns to this website at a later date.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies primarily to make the Site easier to use and to tailor it and our products to your interests and needs (such as language or country). Cookies may be used to help speed up your future activities and experience on our Site. Our cookies allow us to generate anonymous, aggregated statistics that help us understand how users use our site and to help us improve its structure and content.

We do not store any personally identifiable information in our cookie data about you. We store only a unique session ID that will help us to retrieve 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 used exclusively by our services, with the exception of the cookies referred to hereinafter as “third-party cookies”, which are used and managed by external entities in order to provide us with the services we have requested from them with the aim of improving our services and the user’s browsing experience.

“Third party cookies” are primarily used to provide us with access statistics.

What types of cookies do we use?

The cookies used by the site fall into three categories:

  • cookies known as strictly necessary, which do not require your prior consent,
  • cookies subject to your prior consent, used in particular for audience measurement,
  • cookies for sharing on social networks.

1 – Cookies exempt from prior consent

We use these cookies to enable and facilitate navigation on the site, in particular to :

  • remember your browsing preferences such as language, font size, page layout or preferred colors,
  • allow you to browse our site more quickly and easily.

These cookies cannot technically be deactivated from the site. However, you can oppose the use of these cookies, exclusively by configuring your browser. This setting depends on the browser you are using, but it is generally easy to do: in principle, you can either activate a private browsing function or simply prohibit or restrict cookies.

Please note that cookies may have been stored on your device before you set your browser settings: if this is the case, delete your browsing history, again using your browser settings.

2 – Cookies subject to your prior consent

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

We use these cookies to:

  • Collect analytical information to, for example, count the number of visitors to our site and identify the pages of our sites that you visit most often. We use the analytical data we collect for marketing and resource planning purposes,
  • Determine if our customers and visitors adapt easily to the changes we can make to our site.

Types de cookies

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

Persistent cookies
Cookies of this type stay on your computer longer. Persistent cookies help us recognize you when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session.

Analytic cookies
They allow us to analyze what happens on our site in order to improve its performance and the way we present our content to you. In particular, they measure your navigation (the most visited pages, the pages you leave our site, the duration of your visit…). The data stored by these cookies can be seen only by the teams concerned of the Site, but do not record any confidential information.

Sharing cookies (social links)
Our site contains sharing links to LinkedIn, Twitter and other similar social networks, which allow you to share content from our site with others. When you use these sharing buttons, a third-party cookie is set. If you are logged in to the social network while browsing our site, the share buttons link the content you view to your user account.

Cookies management

Most browsers have options in their menus that allow you to manage your cookies by adjusting or configuring your cookie settings. Most browsers are set by default to accept the installation of cookies.

Typically, the browser will give you the option to:

  • display your cookies ;
  • allow cookies;
  • disable all cookies, or only specific cookies;
  • disable all cookies when you close your browser;
  • block cookies;
  • be notified when you receive a cookie;
  • You can also regularly delete cookies from your device via your browser.

Please note that if you choose to block our cookies, some of the functionality of our websites will be disabled (including services such as shopping cart, order management or personalization) and your browsing experience may also be affected, for which we cannot be responsible.

If you set your browser options to delete all cookies, your browsing preferences will be erased when you close your browser.

If you object to the installation or use of a cookie, a refusal cookie is placed on your terminal equipment. 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 the installation of cookies, a consent cookie is installed. If you want to continue to benefit from your choice, you should leave these cookies installed on your terminal.
