Cookies

When you opened a page on our website, you will have noticed a message informing you that our site uses Cookies. These “Cookie” files are installed on your device (Computer, Smartphone, Tablet, etc.) to collect information relating to your browsing. Below, you will find explanations as well as information on ways to configure cookies according to your preferences.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a file that contains information relating to your browsing. It is saved on your hard drive by your browser (such as your history, for example) when you visit a website. This small file allows the server that hosts the site to identify you and to recognise you during the cookie’s lifespan.

Why use cookies?

There are 3 types of cookies, Session cookies, persistant cookies and Third-party cookies. Most Session cookies are crucial for the proper functioning of a website. Deleting them may cause browsing difficulties.

1. Session cookies

Session cookies are crucial for the proper functioning of a website. They allow access to protected spaces, like after you logged into the website, or maintaining settings across pages like in your cart when shopping online.
They are deleted upon closing the browser.

2. Persistant cookies

These cookies are often used to collect your login details so that the website owner can be aware of the number of visits to their site, the average visit duration, the most visited pages, the browser used, etc. Google Analytics generates a cookie with a unique identifier that collects your IP address to determine which city you are logging in from, but without ever knowing from which computer you are doing so or which natural person you actually are. These cookies persist until they "expire" after an amount of time set by the cookie creator.

3. Third-Party cookies

Our website contains links for sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and others, which allows you to share content on our website with other people. When you use share buttons, a third-party cookie is installed after obtaining your consent. If you are connected to social media when you browse our website, the share buttons will allow you to link the contents viewed to your user account.

How to manage cookies?

You have several options of managing cookies. However, any setting you choose is likely to affect your web browsing and your conditions for accessing certain services that require the use of cookies.
