A cookie is a small computer file, a "tracer", collected and read during your browsing (e.g. consultation of emails, a website or a mobile application) deposited on your terminal, regardless of the model or type (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet, video game console).

These files can contain different information such as a session identifier, a language, a browsing history, etc. They are mainly used to offer personalized content or advertisements, and to improve your experience on the Internet. Cookies are collected and kept, subject to your choices, for a period of 13 months following their collection. However, you may delete them at any time.

The collection and reading of other cookies requires your consent. These cookies are the following:

How to accept, refuse or delete cookies?

From your first visit to our website, and then every 6 months, you are asked to accept the collection and use of cookies. To this end, a central window is displayed on our website and asks you to accept the collection of cookies or to set your choices (if you wish to modify them or refuse all or part of these cookies).

We inform you that refusal may degrade your experience on our site. We decline any responsibility for the possible consequences of this refusal, in particular on the absence of proposal of contents adapted to your navigation and to your choices.

Moreover, whatever your choice, you can at any time:

  • Modify your settings within our cookie management tool, exclusively for cookies collected via our site;

  • And/or, to remove the tracers from your terminal via your browser, these choices being applicable to your entire navigation on the Internet.

    Here is some useful information about setting cookies on browsers:

  • Most browsers are set by default to accept the use of all cookies and trackers. You can change this setting to select the cookies you wish to use, or refuse the use of cookies. This setting must be made on each of your terminals (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.).
    The methods of setting and deleting cookies are different for each browser. These procedures are described in the help menu of your browser. You will find below the methods of setting the parameters of the tracers for the most known navigators:

  • Internet Explorer: Managing cookies on Internet Explorer ;

  • Safari : Cookie management on Safari ;

  • Chrome : Managing cookies on Chrome ;

  • Firefox: Managing cookies on Firefox;

    Please note that if you choose to delete all cookies from your device via your browser, we will no longer have information about your choices and will be forced to ask you to reset your choices the next time you visit our site. It is the same if you use a new browser or a new terminal. As these settings are entirely the responsibility of the browsers, we do not guarantee their correct operation.
    And other information on settings, by purpose:

    Browser settings are sometimes insufficient. If you wish, you can further refine your settings, by targeting the purposes of each cookie:

    - For audience tracking and performance: Audience measurement and performance cookies are deposited by third-party companies, but which help us to improve our website, to make its use easier and more efficient.

    Here is a link to a page that allows you to learn more about these solutions and offers you a mechanism to opt out of audience tracking cookies:

  • iAdvize

  • Google Analytics (and other Google products such as "Double Click")

    However, we draw your attention to the fact that deleting these cookies deprives us of important statistical information, necessary for improving the site and customizing it to your profile and interests.

  • For advertising: Our website does not contain any advertising spaces. Consequently, the information collected is used essentially to offer you adapted advertisements on the third-party sites that you visit, based on the information collected thanks to the audience measurement tools listed above (the tools used are identical for these two purposes). In parallel, several platforms of advertising professionals offer you the possibility of refusing or accepting cookies used by the companies that are members of them. These centralized mechanisms do not block the display of advertisements but only prevent the installation of cookies allowing the adaptation of advertisements to your centers of interest. For example, you can visit the Your Online Choices site to prevent the installation of these cookies on your terminal. This site is proposed by the professionals of digital advertising grouped within the European Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) and is managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France. However, we cannot guarantee its efficiency, as the proper functioning of this tool depends on the participation of the advertising industry in this system.
    For social networks: You will find on this website buttons to redirect you to the pages we publish on social networks. If you have an account with these social networks, they can also track your browsing on our site.
