DEFINITIONS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF COOKIES
Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make the browsing experience more efficient for the user.
Cookies involve storing and transmitting information from your first visit and then transmitting updated information again during your subsequent visits in order to optimize the browsing experience by remembering actions and preferences (such as the language chosen, display settings, any login data, etc.) so that you do not have to set them during subsequent visits.
There are types of cookies that, depending on their characteristics and functions, may remain on your device for a predetermined period of time (which can last for years) - these are called persistent cookies. There are also other types of cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your browser, known as session cookies.
This technology therefore involves processing your personal data, and is therefore subject to mandatory legislation on the matter.
TYPE OF COOKIES USED IN THIS WEBSITE
These cookies are of a technical nature and allow the site to function correctly. This category includes cookies that are essential for the proper functioning of the website and functional cookies that allow the user to enhance the browsing experience based on their choices (such as the choice of language, etc.).
We also use technical cookies to track users, in accordance with applicable law on user consent to receive profiling and analytics cookies from third parties.
The use of permanent technical cookies or session cookies (which are not stored for any length of time on the user's computer, and are eliminated on closing the browser) is strictly limited to technically providing the service requested by the user and transmitting the session identification data (formed of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow you to explore the site securely and efficiently.
The technical cookies used by the site allow us to avoid using other IT techniques that could affect the confidentiality of user navigation.
These cookies help us to understand, through anonymous, aggregated data, how users interact with our website by providing information about the pages visited, the time spent on the site, the type of platform used, the number of clicks on a particular page, any malfunctions, etc.
Statistical cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and transmitting information anonymously.
We use Google Analytics to anonymously collect and analyse information about website usage patterns for statistical purposes, without collecting any personally identifiable information about you. The way we use these cookies is fully comparable to technical cookies, so the explicit consent of the person concerned is not required.
We use third party profiling cookies to record and report on your actions on the site in order to measure the effectiveness of an advertisement and present targeted advertisements to you.
Specifically, we use re-marketing, i.e. every time a new visitor accesses our website, the code issues a persistent anonymous cookie to the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). Then when the visitor tracked by the re-marketing cookie surfs the web, the cookie allows the re-marketing provider to serve ads to promote our services, ensuring that these ads are only shown to people who have already visited the website.
The purpose is to display ads that are relevant and engaging to the individual user in line with previous browsing experiences so as to “follow” the web user even after he or she has left our website.
