Browsers are set up by default to allow cookies, but they can be configured to block some or all cookies, or to notify you before a cookie is placed on your device.

You can easily remove all cookies installed in your browser’s cookie folder. Click on your browser’s “Help” feature and enter “Cookies” in the search field to see the instructions for authorizing, blocking or deleting cookies.

If you turn off all cookies, you won’t be able to use all the features of our Website and some pages may not display properly.

Do we detect if users open our emails?

We are likely to detect if users open our emails. In this case, emails sent by our trusted services or partners may contain a “pixel graphic element” that, when displayed, tells us that the email has been opened. In addition, it can report the use of links or advertisements in the email. We can use this information for different activities, for example to determine which emails are most interesting to recipients, to find out if users who don’t open our emails want to continue receiving them, etc. The pixel graphics element is deleted when the email is deleted. If you do not want to allow us to detect whether or not you have opened our emails, or when you click on links in one of our emails, you should click on the “unsubscribe” link [unsubscribe] in the email received. If you choose to opt out, you will no longer receive emails.

Your consent

If you do not want to accept cookies while using our website, you must either:

  1. Change your browser configuration to block all or part of cookies
  2. Stop using our website.

The principle of your agreement is based on simple facts, to accept by clicking a different button than to refuse the use of “Cookies” or to continue the visit of the site without taking into account the opinion that we use cookies. An automatic 100 pixel scroll detection allows us to verify that you continue to browse our site despite the review. In fact, we consider that you accept our cookies.

Will this policy be changed?

This policy was last updated in September 2019. We may occasionally need to change our cookie policy.

This is the European directive, “Internet users must be informed and give their consent before inserting tracers. They should have an option to choose not to be traced when they visit a site or use an app. Publishers are therefore obliged to seek the consent of users in advance. This consent is valid for up to 13 months. Some tracers, however, are exempt from collecting this consent.”

However, according to the agency Reuter, the European Union plans to relax the so-called “telecom package” rules by 2018. A draft directive, plans to rely on web browsers since they could contain an option, in their settings, allowing users to automatically accept the addition of cookies and other tracers on their device. The idea followed by legislators is that if browsers are equipped with such a feature, sites that want to use cookies for advertising targeting do not need to set up banners to ask users for consent, since they have already given their consent via their browser settings.

We suggest that you check this page periodically to stay informed of any changes that may affect you.
