Cookies are small data files that a website may place on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or a page for the first time. Cookies are widely used to operate websites and other applications, or to improve their effectiveness. They help the websites to remember certain information and to recognise your internet browser. Cookies are stored until you close your browser (“session” cookies) or are kept for several visits (“persistent” cookies). The cookie helps the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to designate all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies have numerous functions. For example, they can help us to remember your preferences, analyse the performances of the website, or even allow us to recommend the content that seems most relevant for you.
Some cookies contain personal information. Most cookies do not collect information that identifies you, but rather more general information such as the way in which users arrive at the website and use it.
In general, our cookies fulfil up to four different functions:
Some cookies are essential to the operation of the Website. If you choose to block these cookies, you will not be able to access or use all functions of the Website.
We use other cookies to analyse the way in which our visitors use the website and to check its performances. This enables us to offer a high-quality experience by personalising our offering and swiftly identifying and correcting any problems encountered. For example, we may use performance cookies to find out which pages are most popular, what method of linking between the pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages receive error messages.
We use functional cookies to save your preferences, such as your personalisation preferences. They may be defined by us or by third party suppliers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not work correctly.
We use marketing cookies to distribute targeted advertising. These cookies may be placed on our website by our advertising partners. They may be used by these companies to establish a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other websites. If you do not allow these cookies, you will see less targeted advertising.
You can manage the use of certain cookies by changing your settings in the cookie management tool available on the Website. You also have the option of blocking or deleting cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in the privacy preferences menu of your browser or your mobile device. Don’t forget that if you choose to block cookies, some sections of the Website may not work correctly.
