4. When and how do we collect your consent for the installation of cookies? What are your rights regarding cookies?

4.1 Context for obtaining your consent, scope of your consent and exceptions

4.1.1 The installation of cookies on a computer or device as well as the reading of cookies via the Website are in principle subject to the user’s consent. This means the freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the user’s agreement for this purpose. This consent is collected through our cookie management module (accessible in the footer) available via the following icon:

axeptio.png

under the conditions and procedures outlined below.

Therefore, when users first visit the Website, they are asked if they accept cookies that require their consent, which are classified into various categories depending on the intended purpose, before these cookies are installed on their computer or device. Cookies subject to such consent are only installed on the user’s device if the user expressly accepts them either as a whole or in an individual manner for each purpose of the cookies in question within our cookie management module (refer to the module that allows users to consent to or refuse the use of cookies, depending on the specific purpose of said cookies).

Important:

  • In cases where your consent is required, such consent is strictly optional and you may refuse to give it to us. In any case, if you consent to all or part of these cookies being installed and read, you naturally have the option to withdraw you consent at any time through the cookie management module.
  • Furthermore, unless otherwise specified by you via our cookie management module under the conditions and in accordance with the procedures outlined below, your choice (overall consent, partial consent or refusal) will be retained for 6 months, at the end of which you will once again be asked to consent (or not) to the installation of such cookies on your device.

4.1.2    Exception to the consent for “operating” cookies used by our Website. Such cookies are not subject to your prior consent. Accordingly, these cookies are installed on your device by default during your browsing on the Website, without seeking your prior consent. Insofar as these cookies are necessary to provide you with the best possible user experience and allow you to take advantage of certain features of our Website, we do not provide you with the dedicated technical means to refuse these cookies or to disable them. However, you can disable them (in the same way as some other cookies for that matter) by other methods, such as via the features offered by your browser, with the understanding that in this case you may not be able to access the Website and/or properly receive the content and information available on the Website and/or take advantage of all the features of the Website.

4.2    Practical procedures for collecting your choice regarding cookies (consent / refusal)

The cookie management module contains information for users about the cookies that we may install / read on their device due to the browsing of the Website (also refer to the details about these cookies in Article 3 of this cookie management policy). The cookie management module is displayed when users first connect to our Website, then, irrespective of the option selected by the user (overall consent, partial consent or refusal) it is displayed again every 6 months. It is also displayed again if users delete the cookies through their browser features. 

The cookie management module offers the user the following choices:

  • Either to fully refuse the use of all cookies by clicking on “Refuse all cookies”: no cookies (apart from “operating” cookies) will be installed;
  • Or to fully consent to the use of all cookies by clicking on “Accept all cookies”: all cookies will be installed;
  • Or to personalise these options to more thoroughly manage the accepted (or refused) cookies, by clicking on “Cookie settings”. In this case, the cookies are “refused” by default and the user is prompted to click on the dedicated button for each category of cookies in question within our cookie management module to select the cookies that he/she wishes to accept (with the understanding that the “operating” cookies are not subject to prior consent, and thus are installed by default and cannot be refused by the user via our cookie management module). The user shall then save the options by clicking on “Save my choices”. It is specified that in principle, the cookies that the user has not expressly accepted are considered as refused and will not be installed. This page also offers the user the “Accept all cookies” button as well as the “Back” button allowing the user to return to the previous page of the module.

To access our cookie management module, click on the following icon:

axeptio.png

Available in the footer on all pages of our Website.

In any case you can freely and at any time withdraw your consent to the use of cookies by disabling one or more cookies in accordance with the details provided below.

4.3    Practical procedures for changing your cookie options (withdrawal of consent or objection)

At any time, you have several options to change the settings of your cookies, including to withdraw your consent or to object to the use thereof (i.e. installation/reading of cookies on your device).

4.3.1    You may, at any time via the cookie management module, simply, freely and individually (i.e. in a distributive manner) depending on the intended purposes of the cookies, opt to withdraw your consent or to object to the use of cookies other than the “operating” cookies on your computer or device.

To do so, click on the following icon:

axeptio.png

available in the footer on all pages of our Website and make your choice in accordance with Article 4.2 above.

4.3.2    If you prefer, you can also use one of the following options.

a) Setting your browser

Although most browsers are set by default and accept the installation of cookies, you have the option, if you wish, to set your browser to accept all cookies or to systematically reject them or to only select those that are accepted depending on the issuers/senders (provided that this feature is offered by your browser). Furthermore, you can also regularly delete cookies from your device via your browser.

In any case, these actions must be carried out for each device: tablets, smartphones, computers, etc.

You can therefore freely configure your browser software (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) so that the cookies are:

  • Accepted and stored in your computer or device: in this case the cookies integrated in the pages and content that you have consulted will be systematically stored;
  • Refused: in this case, the cookies integrated in the pages and content that you have consulted will not be stored;
  • Subject to your choice in each case: therefore, the storing of cookies will be subject to your acceptance or refusal.

To configure your cookie preferences for accepting or refusing cookies, you need to take into account your browser configuration insofar as each browser offers different setting methods to manage cookies and these change regularly. Therefore, you should consult the help menu of your browser which will enable you to determine how to change your cookie preferences. For example:

 

Lastly, we nevertheless draw your attention to the fact that in the current state of the art, browsers:

  • Do not all allow you to differentiate cookies based on their purpose (the consequence of which is that you often have to “Accept all” or “Refuse all” when configuring your choices);
  • Do not all allow the user to express a valid consent (the consequence of which is that even though you may have consented to cookies via your browser, we will ask you for specific consent again under the aforementioned terms and conditions prior to any installation/reading by us of cookies subject to your consent);
  • Do not all allow the user to express a choice on technologies other than “cookies for tracking purposes” in the strictest sense of the term. It is also possible that certain cookies, trackers or other similar technologies may not be blocked in principle (e.g.: device fingerprinting) and can still be installed on your device and/or activated despite your refusal expressed in your browser settings.

We therefore recommend that you use the module dedicated to this purpose to manage your cookie choices on the Website (see above).

b) Cookie settings via interprofessional digital advertising platforms 

Several professional advertising platforms also offer users the option to set their preferences regarding the targeted/behavioural advertising used by their member companies. In general, these centralised mechanisms do not block the displaying of all advertisements but prevent the display of targeted/behavioural advertisements tailored to the user’s areas of interest which are defined based on the user’s previous web activity and browsing.

For example, the platform edited by NAI (Network Advertising Initiative) accessible on the https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1 page offers such features.

Although these platforms can help you to manage your targeted advertisement preferences, they do not necessarily block advertisements in general, or the installation of all cookies on your device.

Therefore, we recommend that you use the module dedicated to this purpose to manage your cookie choices on the Website (see above).

c) Use of third-party tools available online

Some publishers of cookies that we use on our Website offer dedicated rejection modules. We therefore recommend that the user refer to the information pages indicated in the above table (refer to details of cookies that we use) to identify such modules, where applicable.

For example, the user may view specific information on the Google Analytics opt out browser add-on module on the following page: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=en&ref_topic=2919631. The user may also opt to disable Google Analytics cookies directly by going to the following page: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

5. Where can you find additional information about personal data processing?

The cookies as such are not considered as personal data. However, they can lead to the collection of information considered as personal data and therefore to the processing of such data. 

In this respect, you are informed that by consenting to the installation of all or part of the cookies on your device, you consent for the purposes associated to the processing of personal data concerning you collected via this method, with the understanding that such processing operations may involve the processing, combination and cross-referencing of a significant volume of personal data from various sources.

For more information regarding the processing of your personal data by the company, particularly the processing of personal data collected via cookies incorporated on our Website, please consult our privacy policy.
