How to configure or refuse cookies

You may choose at any time to express and to change your wishes regarding cookies by the means described below.

Choices offered to you by your browser software

There are several possible ways to manage cookies. Configuring your device may restrict your navigation of the Internet and your conditions of access to certain services requiring the use of cookies. You may choose at any time to express and to change your wishes regarding cookies by the means described below.

Agreement on cookies

The storage of a cookie in a device is essentially subject to the will of the user of the Device, which the later may express and change at any time, free of charge by means of the choices offered to him by his browser software. If you have set your browser software to accept storage of cookies on your Device, the cookies integral to the pages and contents, which you have visited, will be temporarily stored in a dedicated space on your Device. They will be visible only to the organisation, which transmitted them.

Refusal to accept cookies

If you have set your browser software to refuse storage of cookies on your Device, or if you delete those which are saved, you may no longer benefit from a certain number of features, which, however, are still required to allow you the full use of the site. This shall apply if you try to access our contents or services, which require you to identify yourself. This shall also apply when we, or our service providers, are unable to recognise for technical accounting purposes the type of browser used by your device, its language and display parameters or the country, from which your device is connected to the Internet.

Where appropriate, we disclaim all liability for the consequences arising from the impaired operation of our services resulting from the impossibility for us to save or consult the cookies required for their operation and which you have refused or deleted.

Configuration of cookies for your browser

Each browser has a different configuration for the management of cookies. This is described in the Help menu in your browser, which will show you how to modify your wishes as far as cookies are concerned.

Your choices expressed on line on inter-professional platforms

You can connect to the Youronlinechoices site, offered by the digital advertising professionals in the European association, EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance), which is managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.

You can also identify the companies, which subscribe to this platform and which offer you the possibility of refusing or accepting cookies used by these companies to adjust the advertisements which may be displayed on your device, to your navigation information. http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices. This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and constitutes a centralised interface, which allows you to express your refusal or acceptance of cookies, which may be used to adapt the advertisements which may be displayed on your device to its browser on it. Please note that this procedure will not prevent advertisements from the Internet sites you visit being displayed on your device. It will block only the technologies, which make it possible to adjust advertising to your areas of interest.

Why display advertising suited to your navigation?

Our objective is to show you advertisements, which are as relevant as possible. For this purpose cookies technology makes it possible to determine in real time which advertisement to display on a given device, depending on its recent navigation on one or more sites or applications.

Your interest in the advertising content displayed on your device when you consult a site often determines the advertising resources on this site to allow it to manage its services, often provided to users free of charge. You doubtless prefer to see advertising which matches your interests, rather than advertising, in which you have no interest. Similarly, the advertisers, who wish to have their advertisements disseminated, are interested in having their offers displayed to those users, who are likely to be the most interested in them.

If you share the use of your computer with other persons

If your device is used by several persons and when one device has several types of browser software, we are unable to give you definite assurances that the services and advertisements intended for your device are well-matched to your personal use of this device and not to that of another user of the device. Where appropriate, sharing the use of your device with other persons and configuring your browser with regard to cookies is a matter for your free choice and your responsibility.
