1.1 Definition

A cookie is a text file that may be recorded in a dedicated space on the hard disk of your terminal (the hardware equipment (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc….) that you use to consult or view a site, an application, or advertising content) when you consult an online service using your browser software.

A cookie file allows its issuer to identify the terminal in which it is stored, for the duration of the validity or storage of the cookie.
Cookies are therefore data used by a server to send status information to a user’s browser, and by that browser to send status information back to the originating server. Status information can be, for example, a session ID, language, expiration date, response domain, etc.

1.2 Legal regime

Article 32 of the French Data Protection Act, following the transposition of the first Telecom package by Act No. 2004-669 of 9 July 2004 on electronic communications and audio-visual communication services, requires that each user must be clearly and fully informed of the purpose of each type of cookie and the means available to him or her to oppose their installation.


We use four main types of cookies, the purposes of which are described below.

2.1 Analytical cookies

These are cookies that enable us to know the use and performance of our site, to establish statistics, volumes of visits and use of the various elements of our site (content visited, path) enabling us to improve the interest and ergonomics of our services (the pages or sections most often consulted, the articles most frequently read, etc.) and to memorise information relating to your browsing preferences (choice of language for example).
On our site, these are cookies placed by on your terminal for navigation, optimisation, and personalisation of our services on the site (these cookies mainly concern our web analytics solutions).

2.2 Session cookies

These are cookies that disappear as soon as the user leaves the site.

2.3 Permanent cookies

These are cookies that remain on the user’s terminal until their lifespan expires or until the user deletes them using the functions of their browser.

The express agreement to the setting of permanent, analytical or session cookies is not compulsory as the data is used for statistical purposes and the information described herein clearly informs about the nature, type and use of cookies.

2.4 Tracking cookies

These are cookies that allow users to be tracked, such as raw attendance data associated with an identifier (an IP address, for example). This information is kept for a maximum of six (6) months, starting from their first insertion, without the possibility of an extension during new visits. After this period, this data is deleted and/or anonymised.

The express agreement to the installation of tracking cookies is not compulsory as we have a system for deleting and/or anonymising the data collected after six (6) months.

The cookies below, relating to advertising and third-party cookies, are not used by the publisher and are indicated for your full information.

2.5 Advertising cookies

Advertising cookies require prior consent from the user (art 32 of the French Data Protection Act).
