What is a cookie?
Cookies are small blocks of data created by a web server while a user is browsing a website or mobile application and stored on the user’s terminal. They are used to send information about the user to the relevant browser software.

Only the sender of a cookie can read or modify the information stored in it.
Purposes of the cookies used
The cookies we use can be grouped into three categories
- essential or technical cookies ;

Essential or technical cookies
Essential or technical cookies are used to enable or facilitate electronic communication or if they are strictly required for the provision of an online communication service at the explicit request of the user.
These cookies make it possible to:
- Keep the users’ selection on the deposit of tracers;
- Sign up for a service;
- Adjust the website display settings according to the terminal’s preferences
- Memorise information about the contents of a shopping basket, or forms that the user has filled out on the site;
- Grant the user access to their account.
Audience measurement cookies
Audience measurement cookies are used to obtain information about the user’s browsing (for example: measuring performance, detecting browsing problems, optimising technical performance or ergonomics, estimating the power of the servers required, analysing the content consulted, etc.).
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 advertisements relevant to them.
Our website may also contain third-party cookies.
We make sure that these cookies are properly managed by the third party services, but we will not be held responsible for them.
We comply with the requirements of the CNIL (French Data Protection Authority) with regard to the duration of data retention.
Technical or essential cookies are kept for the duration of the service’s provision and operation.
The lifespan of audience measurement cookies does not exceed 13 months. The information gathered by these tracers is kept for a period of 25 months.
Other cookies are kept for as long as is reasonable for the purposes for which they are used. The granted consent will be valid for no more than 13 months.
Consent and exemption
According to the CNIL guidelines, a distinction must be made between cookies that require prior consent and those that fall under the exemption regime.
Advertising cookies require your prior consent.
The exemption regime applies to technical and audience measurement cookies.
You have the right to object to audience measurement cookies that process personal data.
If you have any questions, please contact our data protection officer (see data protection policy).
