What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file, possibly encrypted, saved by a website on the computer or terminal (smartphone, tablet, etc.) that you use to consult it. The purpose of these cookies is to speed up and personalise your use of a website as you visit and return to it.
To do this, cookies communicate information between your web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) and the server that hosts the website, for example, on your preferences for displaying the site (language, font size, etc.), your browsing history, your choices among the options offered by a site or registration data.
What cookies do we use on the site?
These cookies are specific to the content management platform, which can be described as the "engine" of the site. These cookies allow us to manage certain features of the site. They are anonymous (no information is collected that can be linked to your identity). Furthermore, with the exception of the cookie setting your language preference, they expire when you close your browser. They are therefore deleted from your computer or terminal when you exit this software.
The site can use the services of Google Analytics to analyse the frequentation and the behaviour of the users of its site. Statistical cookies make it possible to know, for example, the number of visitors, their geographical location, their path on the site (how and by which page they accessed it, the pages that followed in their session and the page by which they left the site), the time of the visit, etc. These cookies are anonymous and can last up to 2 years.
How to control cookies?
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish using the configuration settings of your browser. You have the option of deleting all cookies already stored on your computer and setting most browsers to block them. However, if you do this, you may have to set certain preferences yourself each time you visit a site, and some services and features may not be available.
