What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet parameters. Most websites use cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Safari, etc.) when you first visit a website. When you return to this site using the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it are either sent back to the website that created it ("first-party cookie") or sent to another website to which it belongs ("third-party cookie"). This enables the website to detect that you have already visited it using the same browser and, in some cases, to offer different content. Some cookies are very useful because they help to improve the user experience, particularly when the user visits a website that has already been visited several times. For example, cookies can remember your preferences, provided you use the same device and browser as on previous visits. They are also used to find out how you use a site and adapt the content offered to match your needs and interests. Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into four categories: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies, marketing targeting cookies.

Your cookie settings on our site:

Strictly necessary cookies

We use these cookies to:

  • Allow you to navigate from one page to another without losing actions previously performed during the same session;
  • Allowing load balancing for better performance of our site;
  • Remember your previous actions, for example your consent regarding the choice of cookies.

Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.

They allow you to browse our site and use the features available. Without these cookies, essential services cannot be provided. Such services include, for example, remembering your previous actions such as your consent choices. These cookies are used exclusively by our site ("first-party cookie"). They are only deployed when you visit our site and are deleted once you close your Internet browser. These cookies also enable you to access our site via a mobile device and facilitate the transition from http to https when you change pages, in order to preserve the security of the data transmitted. These cookies also store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our websites.

Strictly necessary cookies cannot be deactivated.

Functional cookies

We use these cookies to:

  • Remember your preferences;
  • Provide you with multimedia content according to your technical needs;
  • Store your authentication information;

Functional cookies allow our site to record information that has already been entered (such as usernames and language choices), in order to improve your user experience. These cookies are also used to activate features that you request, such as video playback. The data collected via functional cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and they cannot track your movements on other websites.

Functional cookies are deactivated by default when you visit our site. They are deployed only when you have consented to their activation.

Performance cookies

We use these cookies to:

  • Know how visitors interact with our site;
  • Know more about our visitors' journeys;
  • Improve our site and adapt it to our visitors' needs;

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors interact with our site. This allows us to see the pages visited so that we have a complete picture of our visitors' journey. They do not collect or store information that can be directly and personally attributed to you. The information collected via these cookies will generally be processed in aggregate form. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of our site and tailor the experience to the needs of our visitors.

Performance cookies are disabled by default when you visit our site. They are deployed only when you have consented to their activation.

Marketing cookies

We use these cookies to:

  • Make online advertising, content or banner ads more relevant to you;
  • Create online advertising that engages the right people with the right information;
  • Prevent the same ads from reappearing over and over again;

Cookies for marketing purposes collect information about visitors' browsing habits in order to deliver ads that are more relevant to them and their interests. They collect information about when visitors last visited a website and the route they took during their browsing. This information is used to establish a profile of your centres of interest so that advertisements relating to you can be displayed on websites other than ours. Another benefit of these marketing cookies is that the information collected can be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement to avoid overexposure.

These cookies for marketing purposes are placed on our site on the basis of your consent and controlled by selected third parties. Also, customers who visit our site and accept cookies in this category are also, in effect, customers of these other third parties and give their consent for deployment and use not only to us, but also to the third party that controls the cookies for marketing purposes.
