1.What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document stored on your computer or other device (and maintained by your browser) when you visit a website. It often includes a randomized unique identifier so that a website can ”recognize” this cookie again on your next visit. They either guarantee the functioning of websites, improve browsing, or provide certain information to the owners of these websites, particularly in terms of audience measurement. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, but they facilitate, for example, finding preferences, pre-filling certain fields or adapting the content of the services on the visited site. Such data allows us to improve the ergonomics of our Website and our services according to your interests.
2. What Kind of Cookies Do We Use and How Do We Use Them?
We will only keep cookies for as long as is necessary to achieve the relevant purposes set out in this Cookies Policy, and notably for marketing and statistical purposes. Different types of cookies exist depending on their source or function. Generally speaking, we use 1st and 3rd-party cookies, which can be either session or persistent cookies. The “1st-party cookies” refer to the cookies we set, whereas “3rd-party cookies” are cookies set by our third-party partners and service providers.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you close your web browser. Many session cookies are essential to the proper functioning of our Website, as they typically enable you to move around our Website and use our features.
Persistent cookies remain on your device for a specific amount of time after you close your browser, or until you manually delete them. In the former case, the amount of time during which the persistent cookie remains on your device depends both on the duration or “lifetime” of such cookie and your browser settings. Persistent cookies help us recognize you as an existing user of our Website, making it easier and more convenient for you to return to our Website or interact with our Services without having to sign in again. In addition, persistent cookies help us recognize you when you view a resource associated with our Website from another website or application (such as an advertisement) and help us record information about your web browsing habits during the lifetime of the persistent cookie.
