Cookie policy

You are informed that during your visits to the sites, cookies may be installed on your terminal equipment.

A cookie is a small file, usually made up of letters and numbers, that is stored in the terminal equipment of a user and used by the site to send information to the user's browser. It allows this browser to return data to the originating site (for example, a session ID, language choice, or date). 
Cookies are used to keep, during the validity period of the cookie concerned, status information when a browser accesses the different pages of a website or when this browser later returns to this website. 
Cookies are stored in your browser's memory, and each of them usually contains:

The Internet server that sends the cookie uses this number to recognise you when you return to the site or navigate from page to page. Only the issuer of a cookie can read or modify the information contained therein. 
There are two types of cookies, called "temporary" and "persistent":

·       So-called "temporary" cookies allow websites to link your actions during a browsing session. These so-called "temporary" cookies disappear at the end of your browsing session and are therefore not stored for a more extended period.

·       Cookies known as "persistent" are stored on your computer between browsing sessions and allow you to store your preferences or actions on a site (or in some cases on different websites). So-called "persistent" cookies can be used for various purposes and in particular to remember your preferences and choices when using a site.
