Cookies Policy


The Site uses cookies. When you visit the Site, cookies are placed on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The information below is intended to give the User a better understanding of how cookies work and where to find the tools to set them.

 

 What is a cookie?

 

 The use of cookies is common on the Internet. A cookie is a small text file containing information, which is recorded on the hard disk of your terminal (e.g. computer, tablet or mobile phone) when you visit a website using your browser software. It is transmitted by the server of a website to your browser. The cookie file permits its issuer to identify the terminal in which it is stored for the duration of the validity or storage of the cookie concerned. A cookie cannot be traced back to a physical person.

 

Why do we use cookies on the Site?

 

 The Site uses 3 categories of cookies, the purposes of which are described below. No cookie is used to collect nominative information (such as the User's name, for example).

 

 1. Functionality cookies

 These cookies are not essential for browsing the Site but allow the Site to be optimised and to offer a fluid and customised browsing experience.

 In this case, the Publisher uses only one cookie of this type. This is the session cookie. Its lifetime is equal to the time of the User's session. This time is limited to 1 hour in the event of inactivity and a maximum of 24 hours.

 

 2. Cookies for audience measurement (statistics)

 These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. For example, the number of visits, the most visited pages... 

XiTi, the audience measurement and statistics tool used by the Site, generates a cookie with a unique identifier, which is kept for a limited period of 13 months. XiTi collects the IP address, in order to identify the city from which the User connects. This address is immediately anonymized after use. The Editor can therefore in no way trace it back to a physical person.

 The statistical data obtained is not transferred to third parties or used for any other purpose.

 

 3. Sharing cookies (social links)

The Site contains sharing links to Facebook, Twitter and other similar social networks, which allow you to share content on the Site with others. When the User uses these sharing buttons, a third party cookie is set. If the User is connected to the social network while browsing the Site, the sharing buttons allow the content viewed to be linked to the User's account.

 

4. Advertising cookies

These cookies collect information about your web browsing habits in order to serve you ads that are tailored to you and your interests. They also help limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. They are usually installed by advertising networks with the permission of the website operator. They remember visits to a site and share this information with other companies (such as advertisers). Targeted or advertising cookies are often linked to the site features provided by the partner company.

The information is collected and shared with third parties to provide audience targeting and optimisation solutions for advertisers and publishers. No personal data is collected and no individual can be identified through the data collected.
