Essential or technical cookies
Essential or technical cookies are cookies whose exclusive purpose is to enable or facilitate communication by electronic means, or those strictly necessary for the provision of an online communication service at the express request of the user.

The audience measurement cookies
Audience measurement cookies are used to obtain information about the user’s browsing (examples of purposes: performance measurement, detection of browsing problems, optimization of technical performance or ergonomics, estimation of the power of the servers needed, analysis of the content consulted, etc.).
So-called advertising cookies are related to targeted advertising, i.e., the observation of users’ browsing habits, making it possible to create a specific profile in order to show advertisements corresponding to them.
Our website or mobile application may also contain third-party cookies.
We ensure that these cookies are properly managed by the third party services, but we will not be held responsible for them.
We respect the requirements set by the CNIL regarding the duration of data retention.
Technical or essential cookies are kept for the time necessary for the provision and proper operation of the service.
As regards the cookies of audience measurement, their life span does not exceed 13 months. As for the information collected through these tracers, they are kept for 25 months.
Other cookies are kept for a period reasonably necessary for the purposes for which they are used. The validity of the consent given will not exceed 13 months.
According to the CNIL guidelines, a distinction must be made between cookies that require prior consent and those that fall under the exemption regime.
Cookies that require your prior consent are cookies of an advertising nature.
Technical cookies and those relating to audience measurement are covered by the exemption regime.
With regard to cookies for audience measurement that would process personal data, you can express a right of opposition.
