Cookies policy

1. Definitions

Cookies are information deposited on the device of an Internet user by the server of the website visited. Cookies are used by a website to send information to the Internet user's browser and to allow this browser to send information back to the original website (for example, a session ID or choice of language).

Only the issuer of the cookie can read or change the information they contain.

There are two different types of cookie:

  • session cookies that disappear as soon as you leave the website;
  • persistent cookies that stay on your device until they expire or until you delete them using your browser settings.

During your visits to this website, cookies may be installed on your device.

2. Purposes of cookies

Some cookies used by the Editor are exclusively for the purpose of enabling or facilitating communication by electronic means (detection of connection errors, identification of connection points, etc.).

Others are strictly required to provide on-line communication services at your specific request (shopping basket, screen display preferences, etc.).

Others are used to:

  • analyse the number of visitors and the use made of the website in order to be able to improve the browsing experience;
  • improve the relevance of advertisements shown on the website;
  • make the site more user-friendly and interactive.

3. Which cookies do we use?

The cookies used on the website are:

  • the Editor's cookies;
  • third-party cookies chosen by the Editor with the purpose of achieving specific goals.
3.1. Editor's cookies

These cookies are required for the website to function and cannot be disabled in our systems. They are generally established in response to actions you have taken and which constitute a request for services, such as the definition of your preferences in terms of confidentiality, connection or filling in forms. These cookies do not store any personal identification information.

The cookies deposited by the Website's tools are detailed in the table below:

3.2. Third-party cookies

The Editor also uses services provided by third parties.

3.2.1. Audience measurement cookies

The Editor uses third parties to measure Website audience.

For information purposes, the Editor uses, among others, the Google Analytics service which counts visitors and identifies how they use the site. This is a statistics tool which allows the Editor to improve their website by taking visitors’ requirements into account.

The data generated by these cookies concerns:

  • your use of the website, such as the pages you have visited;
  • your IP address to determine the place of connection. This data is immediately anonymised after localisation and is not sent to Google.

4. Improving the website's user-friendliness and interactivity

So that you can access certain features of the website, the Editor uses services provided by third parties, such as:

  • share buttons (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn);
  • videos posted on VIMEO or YOUTUBE

These features use third-party cookies which are directly deposited by the suppliers of the service.

The Editor is under no circumstances responsible for the content or operation of any social media whatsoever, including those that may be linked to the Website. 

5. Obtaining your consent

When you visit our website for the first time, you are asked whether you want to accept or reject the use of certain cookies.

If you do not want cookies to be installed or read on your device, a rejection cookie will be deposited on your device so that the Editor can record the information that you have rejected the use of cookies. If you delete this rejection cookie, it will no longer be possible to identify you as having accepted or rejected the use of cookies.

In the same way, when you accept the use of cookies, a consent cookie is installed.

Consent or rejection cookies must remain on your device. You can change your preferences at any time as indicated in the next section, “Cookie management”.

6. Cookie management

There are several options available to you to delete and manage cookies and other trackers.

6.1. Computer settings

While the majority of browsers are configured by default and accept the installation of cookies, you can, if you wish, choose to accept all cookies, to systematically reject them or to choose which ones you accept depending on their issuer.  You can also regularly delete cookies from your device via your browser.

Don't forget, however, to configure all the browsers on your various devices (tablets, smartphones, computers, etc.).

To manage cookies and your choices, configuration differs on each browser. It is described in your browser's help menu, which will inform you how to change your cookie preferences. For example:

However, we draw your attention to the fact that by configuring your browser to reject cookies, some features, pages and spaces on the website will not be accessible, for which we cannot be held responsible.

6.2. Objection platforms

Many professional advertising platforms also offer you the possibility to reject or accept cookies used by their member companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of adverts, but only prevent the installation of cookies that make it possible to tailor adverts to your interests.

For example, you can go to  to prevent the installation of these cookies on your device. This site is proposed by digital advertising professionals within the European association, EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance), and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.

You can thus find out which companies have signed up to this platform and which offer you the possibility to reject or accept the cookies used by these companies to tailor the adverts likely to be displayed on your device to your browsing information:

This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and is a centralised interface allowing you to reject or accept cookies that may be used to tailor the adverts that may be displayed on your device to your browsing.

6.3. Cookie management module

Finally, a module allows you to select the cookies you want to accept and those you want to reject on this website.

At any time, by clicking on this link you can access the module and change your preferences.

7. Personal data protection

Within the framework of using cookies as described in this document, the Editor may process your personal data in their capacity as data controller. The data collected is necessary to achieve the objectives pursued by each cookie.  It is only intended for the authorised services of the Editor and/or the company issuing third-party cookies.

Your personal data may be transferred to a sub-contractor in the United States within the framework of social media or Google Analytics cookies. The latter will receive the following data categories: pages visited, IP addresses, data concerning the device, etc.

The personal data collected via cookies is never stored for longer than necessary to achieve the purpose of the cookie, and in no case longer than 13 months.

In application of the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects have a right of enquiry, access, rectification, deletion, opposition on legitimate ground and portability in relation to their data.

When consent is the legal basis for processing, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

Following the death of the person, the data collected is stored for the time required by the Editor to comply with its legal and regulatory obligations. Upon expiry of this period, the data will be deleted, unless the person decides for it to be disclosed to a third party of their choice, in compliance with the provisions of article 85 of French law 78-17 of 6 January 1978 on data protection, amended in 2018. The rights may be exercised first of all by contacting the person responsible for the data protection policy at the following address:

You have the right to make a claim to the Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (Cnil), the competent supervisory body. For more information, refer to the Data protection policy.
