Third-party cookies:

If allowed under your cookie settings (see the cookie settings section below), third parties (advertising agencies, web analytics companies etc.) will set/read cookies when you browse our website.

These cookies are used by these companies, during the lifespan of the cookies, to determine and distribute relevant advertising content, reflecting your centres of interest based on their knowledge of your browsing habits on our website.

The social networks you use determine the terms governing their use of the information they obtain and we have no control whatsoever over their use of this information. We recommend that you consult their privacy policies, which will specify how they use this data and the steps you can take to increase account confidentiality.

As cookies are connected to the device and the browser used, we cannot be absolutely sure of the identity of the person using the device. Accordingly, some services and advertising proposed on this device may not correspond to your use (browsing habits/settings of other users of the device may influence the content proposed).

  • Sector-specific platforms:

    Some sector-specific platforms allow you to manage cookies online. For example, the YourOnlineChoices website is proposed by various digital advertising businesses (members of the European Digital Advertising Alliance) and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) France.

    For the businesses registered with this platform, you can enable or disable behavioural advertising cookies:
    http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices

    This will not stop advertising on the websites you visit but it will prevent the registered businesses from collecting and using data for behavioural advertising purposes.
  • Other tools:

    In addition to the above solutions, third-party companies have developed tools (browser plug-ins or add-ons) to manage the collection and use of cookies.
