Only the party issuing a Cookie can read or modify the information contained in it. The Cookies we issue make it possible to:

B- COOKIES ISSUED ON OUR SITE BY THIRD PARTIES

The issue and use of Cookies by third parties are subject to the protection of privacy policies of those third parties. We hereby inform you of the purpose of these Cookies, of which we are aware, and the means available to you to make choices as regards these Cookies.

  • The cookies issued on our Site through third party applications integrated into our Website:

On our Site, we may include computer applications that come from third parties, which enable you to share the content of our Site with other people or tell those people about your browsing or opinions concerning content on our Site. This is notably the case with "Share" and "Like" buttons, which come from social networks like Facebook, Google+, etc. 
The social network supplying such an application button may identify you through this button, even if you have not used the button when viewing the Site. This is because this type of application button can enable the social network concerned to follow you while you are browsing our Site, from the sole fact that your account with the social network concerned has been activated on your Terminal (open session) while you are browsing our Site. 
We have no control over the processes employed by social networks to collect information relating to your browsing on our Site, associated with the personal data they hold. We invite you to view the privacy protection policies of these social networks in order to find out what the browsing information they collect through these application buttons is used for, particularly advertising. 
These protection policies should notably enable you to exercise your choice with these social networks, in particular by configuring your user accounts with each of these networks. 
 

  • Cookies issued on our Site by an external media/advertising agency making use of the information collected during browsing:

Some information in our Site may be exploited by one or more external Advertising Agencies and may contain Cookies issued by one of them. Any Cookies issued by these external Advertising Agencies enable them, during the validity of the Cookies:

  • to adapt the advertising spaces they operate to the display preferences of your Terminal (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) according to the equipment and display/reading software contained in your Terminal
  • to adapt the advertising content displayed on your Terminal according to the browsing of your Terminal on our Site.

 

II. YOUR CHOICES CONCERNING COOKIES

Several possibilities are offered to manage Cookies. Every configuration you carry out can modify your browsing on the Internet and your conditions of access to certain services requiring the use of Cookies.
You can choose at any time to express and modify your wishes as regards Cookies, using the methods provided by browsing software, described below.
You can configure your browsing software so that Cookies are registered on your terminal or, on the contrary, that they are rejected, either systematically or according to their issuer. You can also configure your browser software to occasionally ask you to accept or refuse Cookies before the Cookie is saved onto your terminal (see the "How to make your choices according to the browser you use" section below).

ACCEPTANCE OF COOKIES

The registration of a Cookie on a terminal is essentially subject to the wishes of the Terminal's Users, which they can express and modify via their browsing software. If you have agreed in your browser to register Cookies on your Terminal, the Cookies integrated into the pages and content you have viewed can be stocked temporarily in a dedicated space in your Terminal. They can only be read there by the issuer. 

REFUSAL OF COOKIES

If you refuse to register Cookies on your terminal, or if you delete those that have been registered, you will no longer benefit from a number of advantages needed for browsing certain spaces on our site. This would be the case if you tried to access any of our contents or services that require you to identify yourself; likewise, with regard to technical processing, if we or our service providers cannot recognise the type of browser used by your terminal, its language or display settings, or the country from which your terminal appears to be connected to the Internet.
As the case may be, we decline any responsibility for consequences arising from the impaired operation of our services caused by our inability to register or view the cookies needed for their operation, which you have refused or deleted.

HOW YOU CAN EXERCISE YOUR CHOICE, DEPENDING ON THE BROWSER YOU USE?

When it comes to managing cookies and choices, the configuration of each browser is different. It is described in the browser help menu, which will tell you how to modify your cookie options.
