Purpose and scope
You are informed that, when you visit our website, cookies may be installed on your equipment (desktop or laptop computer, tablet or smartphone).
The purpose of this policy is to inform you of the essential elements relating to the way in which we use these cookies, the purposes for which they are used and to inform you of your rights in this respect.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files recorded and/or read in the terminal of an Internet user when consulting a website or any mobile application, and used by this site to send information to the browser software.
Throughout its period of validity, a cookie enables its sender to recognise the terminal each time it accesses content containing cookies from the same sender.
Only the sender of a cookie can read or modify the information contained in it.
Purpose of the cookies used
The cookies we use can be grouped into three categories:
1. Essential or technical cookies;
2. Audience measurement cookies;
3. Advertising cookies.
1. Essential or technical cookies
Essential or technical cookies are those whose sole purpose is to enable or facilitate communication by electronic means, or those strictly necessary for the provision of an online communication service at the express request of the user.
In particular, these cookies make it possible to:
– To keep the choice expressed by the user on the deposit of tracers;
– Authenticate the user to a service;
– Adapt the presentation of the site to the display preferences of the terminal;
– To store information relating to the contents of a shopping basket, or to forms that the user has filled in on the site;
– To offer users access to their account.
2. Audience measurement cookies
Audience measurement cookies are used to obtain information about the user’s browsing experience (examples of purposes: measuring performance, detecting browsing problems, optimising technical performance or ergonomics, estimating the power of the servers required, analysing the content consulted, etc.).
3 Advertising cookies
Advertising cookies are linked to targeted advertising, i.e. the observation of users’ browsing habits, making it possible to create a specific profile in order to show advertising tailored to them.
Our website may also contain third-party cookies. We ensure that these cookies are properly managed by third-party services, but we cannot be held responsible for them.
We comply with the requirements set by the CNIL in terms of data retention periods.
Technical or essential cookies are kept for as long as is necessary for the provision and proper operation of the service.
Audience measurement cookies are kept for a maximum of 13 months. The information collected via these tracers is kept for 25 months.
Other cookies are kept for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which they are used. The validity of the consent granted will not exceed 13 months.
Consent and exemption
According to CNIL guidelines, a distinction must be made between cookies that require prior consent and those that are exempt.
Cookies requiring your prior consent are advertising cookies.
Technical cookies and audience measurement cookies fall under the exemption regime.
With regard to audience measurement cookies that may process personal data, you may exercise your right to object.
We use a Consent Management Platform (“CMP”) to collect consent and manage the right to object.
If you have any questions, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see Data Protection Policy).
For more general information on the protection of personal data, please consult the CNIL website at www.cnil.fr.
In the event of regulatory changes or recommendations from the CNIL, we reserve the right to amend this policy. You will be notified of any new policy before it comes into force.
