What is a “cookie” ?

Like almost the entire web, our site uses “cookies”. A “cookie” is a small text file stored on your device that allows our website to identify which machine and browser is connected to it, in order to provide you with a seamless browsing experience.

For the sake of completeness, please note that a cookie is neither a program, nor a Trojan horse, nor a malware (malicious software). It serves a purely functional role and in no way affects the integrity of your device.

Cookies are installed the first time you visit a website. The law requires that these cookies are automatically deleted after a maximum period of 12 (twelve) months following their installation. If you visit our website after this period of 12 (twelve) months, new cookies will be installed. If it has been a long time since you have visited our website, it is possible that the functions and types of cookies have changed. Please refer to this “Cookies Policy” to learn more about the types of cookies we now use.

You can of course choose to delete one or even all of the cookies installed on your device at any time. Please see the section “Settings and deletion of cookies” below for more information on this subject.
