A cookie is a small computer file known as a "tracker", collected while you are browsing the internet (e.g. checking emails, websites or mobile apps) and stored on your device, regardless of the model or type (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet, video game console).
These files contain different information such as a session identifier, language, browsing history, etc. They are mainly used to offer personalised content or advertising, and to improve your experience on the Internet.
Cookies are collected and stored, subject to your choices, for a period of 12 months. However, you can delete them at any time.

How do you accept, reject, or delete trackers?
Please be aware that refusing to accept cookies may result in a less than optimal experience on our site. We decline all responsibility for the possible consequences of this refusal, including the absence of content adapted to your browsing habits or preferences.
Nevertheless, whatever you decide, you may do the following at any time:

And/or, remove the cookies from your device via your browser, these preferences applying to all your internet browsing.
Here is some useful information about setting cookies on browsers:
The methods for setting and deleting cookies are different for each browser. These procedures are described in your browser help menu. Below you will find links for tracker setting procedures for the most common browsers:
- Internet Explorer : Gestion des cookies sur Internet Explorer ;
- Safari : Gestion des cookies sur Safari ;
- Chrome : Gestion des cookies sur Chrome ;
- Firefox : Gestion des cookies sur Firefox.
Please note that if you choose to delete all cookies from your device via your browser, we will no longer hold any information about your settings preferences and will have to ask you to set your preferences again the next time you visit our site. The same applies if you use a new browser or device. As these settings are entirely the responsibility of the browsers, we do not guarantee that they will function correctly.
And further information on settings, by purpose:
The browser settings are sometimes insufficient. If you wish, you can further refine your settings by targeting the purpose of each cookie:
For audience tracking and performance: Audience measurement and performance cookies are set by third party companies, but they help us to improve our website and make it easier and more efficient to use.
Here is a link to a page where you can find out more about these solutions and how to opt out of audience tracking cookies:
- Google Analytics (and other Google products)
- Google Analytics (and other Google products such as "Double Click")
However, we would like to point out that deleting these cookies deprives us of the knowledge of important statistical information, necessary to improve the site and to personalise it to your profile and interests.
For advertising: Our website does not display any advertising. As a result, the information collected is used mainly to offer you targeted advertising on the third-party sites you visit, based on the information collected thanks to the audience measurement tools listed above (the tools used are identical for these two purposes). At the same time, several professional advertising platforms give you the chance to refuse or accept cookies used by their participating companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of advertisements, but only prevent the installation of cookies that allow advertisements to be adapted to your areas of interest. You can go to the website, Your Online Choices site to prevent the installation of these cookies on your device. This site is run by professional digital advertisers grouped within the European Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) which is managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France. However, we cannot guarantee that it will be completely effective, as to run properly this tool is reliant on the system’s advertisers.
For social networks: On this website you will find buttons that redirect you to our social media pages. If you have an account with these social networks, they may also be able to track your browsing on our website.
We may also offer you
connection services through social networks or certain web interfaces (e.g. Facebook connect, Google connect, Apple Connect) to make it easier for you to log in and make purchases. The use of this feature is optional, and if you are already a user of these services, it allows you to log in without having to provide your personal details, authorising us to access this information.

Finally, we would like to inform you that there are a number of different programmes that can be added to your browser to enable you to block and manage all types of cookies, such as Abine or Ghostery.
