Cookie Policy

1. Cookies

A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer when you visit a website. They are used to store a variety of information about your browsing session and to make websites work, or work in a more efficient way, by enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of the website more convenient

2. Different types of cookies

There is a general distinction between session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies

Session cookies are cookies that expire at the end of a browser session, that is when the user exits the browser. They allow websites operators to link the actions of users during a single browser session to allow them to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket. 

Persistent cookies

In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on the user's equipment between browsing sessions. They therefore enable the website to "recognise" the user on his return, to remember the user's preferences and to tailor services to them.
