Management of cookies

A cookie is a small file saved on the hard drive of your computer at the request of the server managing the website visited. It contains information on the navigation you have done on the pages of the site. The purpose of the cookies placed during a visit to the site is to ensure its optimal functioning by keeping the Internet user’s data for the duration of that user’s session, to allow audience measurement statistics to be established, and to show you advertisements that fit your interests, as well as to improve the interactivity of the site via social networks. On your computer, it is the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) that manages cookies and receives the order from the server to store them. This means that you can prohibit any storage of cookies (but if you do so, access to many sites, or at least use of their functions, then becomes impossible or limited). Browsers allow you to find cookies, list them and even delete them. Even if you do not delete them, they will eventually disappear because they expire after several months or at the ‘end of session’, that is to say the moment when you leave the site you were visiting.

Several different kinds of cookies are used on the website:

Strictly necessary cookies: these are essential for the website to function properly and cannot be deactivated from our systems. They are usually only activated in response to actions you take that constitute a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block cookies or to alert you when they are used. However, if this category of cookies - which does not store any personal data - is blocked, certain parts of the site will not be able to work.

Performance cookies: These cookies make it possible to establish the number of visits to the website and the sources of its traffic, in order to measure them and to improve website performance. All data collected by these cookies are aggregated and hence anonymised. If you do not accept this category of cookies, your visits will not be included in our visitor statistics but you can use the site normally.

Functional cookies: These cookies allow us to improve the functions of our site and to personalise it. They may be set by us or by third-party partners whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not accept these cookies, some or all of these services may not function correctly.

Targeted advertising cookies: These cookies may be activated on our website by our advertising partners. They may be used by these companies in order to establish profiles on your interests, and in order to offer you targeted advertising on other sites. They operate only by identifying your browser and your device. If you do not accept this category of cookies, the advertising you will see when you navigate to other websites will be less targeted to your interests. In particular, the Site uses Google group cookies. For all information on how Google uses data collected via these cookies, you can review Google’s confidentiality regulations and conditions of use, accessible here.


The data controller may periodically amend this Policy. Consequently, we invite you to contact the data controller to verify that you have the most recently updated version of this policy.
