  • To store data related to forms filled previously by the user on the website (registration, or access to the user’s account), and to products, services or data that are selected on our website such as subscription etc.

The User’s Options
There are several options to manage the cookies, Any setting that might be adopted is likely to modify the browsing over the internet as well as the access to services that require cookies to operate.

Options related to cookies can be entered and modified, at any time, in various manners as indicated below.

Selecting the options offered by the user’s browser
The browser can be set to save the cookies in the user’s computer terminal or, conversely, to refuse them either automatically or depending on their transmitter. The browser software can also be set to require a separate approval or refusal of the cookies proposed before they are stored in the user’s terminal computer.

Acceptance of cookies
To save a cookie in a terminal drive is strictly dependent on the user’s will which can be expressed at any time , or modified, free of charge on the options proposed by the browser.

If the user’s browser has accepted to save cookies on the computer, the cookies included in pages and contents that will be consulted may be stored temporarily in a dedicated space of the user’s terminal drive where only their transmitter will be able to read them.

Refusal of cookies
If the user’s browser has refused to save cookies on the computer, or if saved cookies are disabled, the benefit of a number of functionalities that are required to visit some of our pages will be lost; such would be the case for access to contents and services where identification is requested. It would also be the case if we -or our service providers – ,could not recognise, for technical accounting purposes, the type of browser used by the computer, its language and display settings, or the country where it seems to be connected from.

As the case may be, we shall not be held liable under any circumstances for the consequences of a deteriorated performance of our services resulting from the relevant necessary cookies being refused or deleted and our subsequent incapacity to save and consult them.
