What are cookies

Cookies are small text strings created by a server and stored in text files on the hard disk of your computer or any device you use to access the Internet (smartphone, tablet). They make it possible to collect information on the navigation made by the user on the website.

Cookies can be stored permanently on the user's computer and have a variable duration (persistent cookies), but they can also disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (session cookies).

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (so-called first party cookies) or may be set by other websites (so-called third party cookies).

Some operations on the website could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which are therefore technically necessary in some cases. In general, cookies are distinguished in:

  1. Technical cookies
    1. a. Session/navigation cookies: The use of so-called session cookies (which are not permanently stored on the user's computer and disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the Site and its applications. The so-called session cookies used on the Site avoid the use of other IT techniques that could potentially compromise the confidentiality of users' browsing and do not allow the acquisition of personal data identifying the user. They do not require the user's consent for their installation.
    2. b. Persistent cookies: persistent cookies remain on the device even after leaving the website, until the user deletes them or until their expiry date is reached. The Site creates this type of cookie and stores them on the device so that they can be read when the user visits the Site again. This makes it possible, for example, to find the preferences that have been set (e.g. storing registered users...) on subsequent visits to the Site. They do not require the user's consent for their installation.
  2. Analytics cookies
    These are cookies installed to collect aggregate information of a mainly statistical nature (time spent on a web page, number of visitors to the Site, etc.).
    1. First-party analytical cookies: these are similar to technical cookies in that they are installed directly by the website you are visiting to improve its usability. They do not require the user's consent for their installation.
    2. Third-party analytical cookies: analytical cookies created and installed by third parties to analyse users' browsing in order to compile statistics on visits or to improve the content on offer, to show similar products and, possibly, to place targeted advertising on web pages. The Controller does not use these types of cookies on the Site.
  3. Profiling cookies

    These are cookies used to track the user's navigation on the web and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc. These cookies can be used to transmit to the user's terminal advertising messages in line with the preferences already expressed by the user when surfing online. The Controller does not use these types of cookies on the Site.
