What are cookies

The cookie is a small text file containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and your terminal (usually the browser) and is normally used by the website manager to store the information necessary to improve navigation within the site or to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user in the context of surfing the net. When you visit the same site again or any other site, the user’s device checks for the presence of a recognized cookie, in order to be able to read the information contained therein. The different cookies contain different information and are used for different purposes (efficient navigation on the pages of the same site, profiling in order to send targeted promotional messages, analysis of the number of visits to the site). During navigation, the user can also receive on his terminal cookies sent from different websites or web servers (so-called third parties), on which some elements may reside (e.g. images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of others domains) present on the site the user is visiting. More generally, some cookies (called session cookies) are assigned to the user’s device only for the duration of access to the site and automatically expire when the browser is closed. Other cookies (defined as persistent) remain on the device for an extended period of time. The specific purposes of the different types of cookies installed on this site are described below. You can disable cookies by following the information below.

Characteristics and purposes of the cookies installed by the site

If you do not want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings so that you are notified when cookies are being sent or so that you can refuse the cookies themselves. You can also delete cookies that have already been installed on your device. If you want to limit or block browser cookies that are already installed on your device, you can do so by setting the browser itself: the “Settings” function in the browser should tell you how. For more information on cookies and how to manage them, you can visit AboutCookies.org which contains detailed information on how to intervene on the different types of browsers. By disabling cookies you risk losing some features of the site.
