Cookie policy

What are cookies

Cookies are strings of text, made up of letters and numbers, sent to the user’s device from the websites they visit (referred to as “first-party cookies”) or from third-party websites (referred to as “third-party cookies”), which are transmitted back to the same websites at each subsequent access. Cookies, for instance, help streamline the analysis of web traffic or report when a specific website or part of it is visited, distinguish between visitors in order to provide customised content, and help administrators improve the website and the user’s navigation experience.
We cannot access any information stored on your device using cookies, even if this is where cookies are downloaded. Cookies cannot upload codes of any kind, transmit viruses or malware, and are therefore not harmful to the user’s terminal.
When connecting to any page of the website for the first time, the user will see a summary cookie policy pop up. We only use technical or similar cookies. We do not use tracking or profiling cookies, nor any other type of active identifiers, such as Beacon and Pixel or passive cookies (e.g. fingerprinting).
No user consent is required to use this type of cookie.
Users will nevertheless be able to limit cookie activity, as explained below.
Should you experience technical issues with cookies, please contact us using the dedicated channels envisaged on this website to enable us to assist you.

What types of cookies we use

When browsing this website, you will receive cookies both from this website, referred to as first-party cookies, as well as cookies from third-party websites, which may set cookies on your device on our behalf in order to deliver the services they are providing.
To allow you to use our website and provide our services, we make use of both persistent cookies (i.e. cookies that remain in memory until they are manually deleted by the user or are scheduled to be removed in the long term) as well as session cookies, which are not stored persistently in the visitor’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed.
The different types of cookies – with specific functions – that we used can be classified as follows:

  • Strictly necessary: these are essential for the proper functioning of our website and enable the user to navigate and view the contents. If they are disabled, this would cause the website to malfunction.
  • Statistical: these are used to collect anonymised and aggregated information about how users navigate our website.

Here is a summary of which cookies that we use and do not use on this website

  • Necessary cookies – YES, WE USE THEM
    Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure the protected areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
  • Preference cookies – NO, WE DO NOT USE THEM
    Preference cookies allow a website to remember information that influences the way the website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in.
  • Statistical cookies – YES, WE USE THEM
    Statistical cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with the websites by collecting and transmitting information in an anonymous form.
  • Marketing cookies – NO, WE DO NOT USE THEM
    Marketing cookies are used to track visitors to websites. The intent is to display relevant and engaging advertisements for the individual user and thus those of the greatest value to publishers and third-party advertisers.
  • Unclassified cookies – NO, WE DO NOT USE THEM
    Unclassified cookies are cookies that are in the process of being classified, along with individual cookie providers.

Changing your settings or configuring your terminal not to receive cookies

The user is also always given the possibility to configure their browser so as to disable the receipt of cookies. However, if you disable cookies, the website or some of its functions may not work properly. To change the way cookies are used, to block the receipt of cookies or to delete cookies from your terminal, simply go to your browser settings. The majority of browsers envisage the possibility of accepting or rejecting all cookies (“do not track”) or of accepting only some of them.
Although the steps are similar, the cookie configuration method varies from one browser to the next. For details on the procedure to follow, users can visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/ or consult the “Help” section in their browser.
