The cookies that We use do not contain personal data but only an anonymous identification number and information about the computer’s browsing on the Site concerned (the pages consulted, the date and time of consultation etc.)
We mainly use session cookies allowing a User to log in and connect to the Site and elements of the User’s browsing history to be remembered during a session. These cookies are essential for the User to browse and access the Site. They can be deleted or blocked. However, if you want to delete these cookies that are absolutely essential, some of the Site’s features will not work as they should.
Other cookies that account for User preferences, settings chosen and previously consulted pages are also installed while browsing on the Site. Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the Site to function, but they improve browsing performance.

The data generated by the cookies with regards to using the Site (including the IP address) will be sent to and stored by Google on servers that may be located in the United States of America.
Google will use this information to evaluate how the Site is used, to compile reports on Site activity and to provide other services relating to the Site activity and Internet use.
Google is likely to communicate this data to third parties in the event that they are legally obliged to do so or when third parties process this data on Google’s behalf, including the Site Publisher. Google will not cross-reference your IP address with any other data they obtained.
The User can reject the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=fr

These third-party cookies are intended to identify what you are interested in from the products you have viewed or purchased on the Site and to collect browsing data in order to personalise adverts you come across outwith the Site.
