Information concerning the use of cookies

When you consult our website, information may be recorded in ‘Cookie’ files stored on your computer, tablet or mobile telephone. This page helps you understand what Cookies are, what they are used for and how to configure them.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file placed, subject to your choice, on your device (computer, mobile or tablet) when you visit a website or consult an advertisement. Its purpose is to collect information relating to your browsing and to offer you services tailored to your device (computer, mobile or tablet).

Cookies are handled by your internet browser and only the creator of a cookie may read or modify the information contained therein.

The Cookie does not identify you personally, just the browser on your device.


What are cookies created by our website used for?

Three types of cookie, serving the purposes described below, may as described be stored on your terminal when you visit our website:

1. Technical cookies are necessary for navigation of our website, as well as for accessing our different products and services. Technical cookies, notably, are there so that you can be recognised, to indicate the pages that you have consulted and as a result to facilitate your navigation, adapting the presentation of the website to the display preferences of your terminal (language used, display resolution) and memorising passwords and other information relating to a form you may have filled in on the website (registration or access to member space). Technical cookies also make security measures possible (for example when you are asked to reconnect to your member space after not having accessed it for a certain period of time). These cookies cannot be disabled or configured as doing so would make it impossible to access the website and/or services offered by it.

2. Audience measurement cookies are created by us or our technical service providers for the purpose of measuring the audience for the different topics and contents of our website, enabling us to evaluate and better organise the information. These cookies also make it possible, where necessary, to detect navigation problems and thus to make our services more user-friendly. These cookies only produce anonymous statistics and traffic volumes, with no individual information. The lifetime of these audience measurement cookies does not exceed 13 months.

3. Social network cookies enable us to share the contents of our website with others or to communicate your visit or your opinion of the content of a website to them. This is the case, notably, with ‘Share’ or ‘Like’ buttons on social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. A social network that provides this type of application button is likely to identify you through the button even if you had not used it during your consultation of our website. We suggest you consult the privacy practices and policies of these social networks if you would like information on the purposes (notably advertising) to which navigation information is put when information is collected via these application buttons. The lifetime of these cookies does not exceed 13 months.
