Websites use useful and judicious techniques to increase usability and make the site as interesting as possible for each visitor. Cookies are one of the best known techniques. They can be used by website owners or by third parties, such as advertisers, who communicate through the website you are viewing.
Cookies are small text files stored by websites on users’ computers. The information in cookies can also be used to track your browsing on different websites that use the same cookie.
Cookies are classified by duration and by source.
We believe that it is essential to provide you with information on the cookies used on our website as well as their purpose. The goal is threefold: to ensure the protection of your privacy, to make our website more user-friendly and to ensure its development. The following information will allow you to learn more about the cookies used on our website and their purpose.
We use different types of cookies depending on their purpose.
Below is a list of the most common cookies and a description of their purpose.
3.1. Session cookies
A session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your computer when you browse a site. They are not stored for a long time on your computer, and disappear as soon as you close your web browser.
3.2. Original Cookies
These cookies are installed by the website itself (the same domain that appears in the browser’s address bar) and can only be read by this site. These cookies are generally used to store information, for example your preferences, which will be used the next time you visit the site.
3.3. Third party cookies
Third-party cookies are installed by a domain different from that which appears in the address bar of the browser, that is to say by another organization than the owner of the site.
For example, the cookies used to collect web statistics may be third-party cookies.
Since third-party cookies make it possible to generate more in-depth surveys of the user’s browsing habits, they are considered more sensitive in terms of integrity. This is why most web browsers allow you to change your settings so that you do not want them to.
4.1. Display of cookies
Since cookies are simple text files, they can be viewed with most text editors or word processing programs. You can click on a cookie to open it. The list below explains how to display cookies in different browsers. If you use a different browser, see the cookie information specific to that browser. If you are using a mobile phone, refer to its user manual for more information.

4.2. Deactivation / activation or deletion of cookies
To restrict or block cookies, you must access your browser settings.
If you refuse to allow a website to install a cookie on your computer, your browser may be set to warn you before a cookie is installed. Your browser can also be set to refuse all cookies, or only third-party cookies. In the same way, you can delete any cookie already installed on your computer. Note that you will need to change the settings for each browser and each computer you use separately.
Please also note that if you do not accept cookies, we will no longer be able to guarantee the proper functioning of our website. Certain site functions may become inaccessible, or you may be unable to access certain websites.
Each browser uses a different method to change the settings. If necessary, consult the help function of your browser to define the appropriate parameters.
Given the functioning of the Internet and websites, we do not always have information about the cookies installed by third parties on our website. This is particularly true when our web page contains embedded elements, including texts, documents, images or short films stored on a third party site but disseminated on or via our website.
So do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter a cookie of this type not listed in the list above on our website. You can also contact the third-party site directly to obtain more information on the cookies installed, their purpose and duration, but also to find out to what extent the respect of your privacy is guaranteed.
This Statement may be changed periodically, based on changes to our website or to cookie regulations. We are authorized to modify at any time and without notice the content of this Declaration as well as the cookies listed. You can check this web page for the latest version.
