1) What is a Cookie?
A Cookie or any similar tracker is a tracker likely to be saved to your device (computer, tablet or smartphone) and / or when you consult a Service with browsing software, via the Site.
A Cookie allows its issuer, during its period of validity, to recognise the device in question each time the device accesses digital content bearing Cookies from the same issuer, and depending on the type of Cookie, to collect additional, indirectly identifying information, on your behaviour within the Services.
In the event that the computer is used by several individuals, for example in the same family with the same browser, the Cookie is assigned to the browsing information of all the individuals having used the device, without distinction.
Cookies can be placed by the Publisher, not by its technical service providers or its partners or third-parties.
Only the Cookie operator, that is to say the person on behalf of whom it is issued, whether they be the issuer or not, is responsible for its use and the Data collected by it.
3) Why are Cookies placed on the Publisher’s Site?
The Cookies enable the Site to operate properly and to register your preferences, to provide the Publisher and its partners with information for statistical or advertising purposes. Below you will find the main purposes of Cookies issued on behalf of the Publisher and, in the partner’s privacy policies below, further information on the processing of the Cookies that they place.
COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE PURPOSES OF BROWSING:
These Cookies are necessary for the correct browsing of the Site, they serve in particular to:
- adjust the presentation of the Site to the display preferences of your device (language used, display resolution, OS used, etc.);
- memorise information relative to your username;
- provide you with access to your account or any other reserved space thanks to your username;
- implement security measures, for example when you are asked to reconnect to Content or a Service after a certain lapse of time.
STATISTICAL COOKIES FOR AUDIENCE MEASUREMENT:
Cookies for audience measurement help to establish statistics and volumes of traffic and use for the different elements that make up the Site (sections and content visited, itinerary), which in turn enable the Publisher to improve the interest and ergonomy of its Services.
Cookies are required for the proper functioning of advertising, even untargeted, which allows you to consult quality editorial content on the Site without financial disbursement.
Advertising Cookies enable, notably, (i) to avoid the repeated display of the same advert, even if the advert is not linked to your preferences, (ii) to audit, measure the advertising inventories and monitor the effectiveness of adverts for the purposes of marketing of advertising space, (iii) to determine in real time which adverts to display depending on your centres of interest in view of your recent browsing of the Site and other sites, in order (iv) to contribute to improving your browsing experience and make it more interesting as well as to improve the pertinence of messages that are likely to be addressed to you, once you have granted prior approval of this possibility, (v) to carry out studies intended to optimise the presentation of the offers from the Publisher.
COOKIES FOR TARGETED ADVERTISING:
As with other publishers of free sites funded by advertising, we implement means enabling the improved pertinence of advertisements. To this end, we and our partners collect, compare and analyse information, often aliases, from your browsing on the Site (online activities, visits, pages viewed, links) with the help of a line of code inserted in the pages that you visit.
We participate in and call upon exchange services based on the marketing username aliases contained in the Cookies (cookie matching) with third-parties, advertising networks or analytical services. These Cookie exchanges therefore enable clients of partners who propose these cookie exchange services to enhance user profiles using data that we possess for targeted advertising purposes.
These processes do not allow for your direct identification. However, only adverts concerning news, products or services likely to interest you, and of which you would not necessarily have been otherwise aware, will be displayed on the pages visited.
If you refuse the targeted advertising cookies, you will continue to receive adverts but they will be standard adverts, not related to your supposed preferences and therefore less likely to interest you.
In the event that we should consider obtaining from a third-party, information on your browsing in order to associate it to the Data with which you provide us, we shall first solicit your explicit approval before going ahead with such an association and addressing you with targeted adverts or canvassing.
SOCIAL NETWORK SHARING COOKIES:
The Publisher offers you the possibility of features that enable the sharing of editorial content, or any other type of content published on the Site, via social network sites. Social network Cookies are managed by the publisher of the social network site. You will find further information on the policy for the management of social network Cookies on the sites concerned.
“FLASH”© COOKIES FROM “ADOBE FLASH PLAYER”™:
“Adobe Flash Player”™ is software that enables the rapid development of dynamic content using the computer language “Flash”. Flash (and similar software apps) memorises the settings, preferences and use of content with the help of technology similar to that of Cookies. However, “Adobe Flash Player”™ manages this information and the User choices via a different interface to that which is provided by the User’s browsing software.
