2. Definition of cookies
A cookie is a small text file that may be stored in a dedicated space on your device’s hard drive (e.g. your computer, tablet, or mobile telephone) when you visit a website using your browser software. It is transmitted by the website server to your browser. The cookie file is used by the issuer to identify the device on which it is stored during the consent period or storage period of the cookie in question.
Each cookie is assigned an anonymous ID tag. A cookie cannot be used to identify a natural person, but only the computer or portable device being used, by means of a randomly generated ID tag. Cookies record only information relating to your browsing activities on the Site (number of visits, pages viewed, date and time of visit, etc.).

When you visit our Site, we may install, subject to your consent, different types of cookies:
- Functionality cookies;
- Performance and analysis cookies;
- Sharing cookies (social media cookies);
- Advertising cookies.
These cookies may be permanent or temporary.
Permanent cookies stay on your device for the duration of time specified by the cookie or until you delete them using your browser. We will use these cookies to identify you during your next visit (by recording a randomly generated number) and they help us gather information on how our Site is used. We use this information to prepare reports and to improve our Site. These cookies gather information in an anonymous format, such as the number of visitors, how visitors arrive at our Site, and the pages visited.

3.1 Functionality cookies
We may use functionality cookies to facilitate your browsing on our Site and the use of its functionalities.
In accordance with regulations, we do not need to obtain your consent for these cookies because they are, by their nature, required in order to browse the website or strictly necessary for the provision of a service specifically requested by a user. Deleting them may result in browsing difficulties. Therefore, we strongly advise against deleting them.
If you delete these cookies, we will be unable to guarantee that our Site will function properly and we will be unable to guarantee your security while you browse the Site.

3.3 Sharing cookies (social media cookies)
Our Site may contain content from third-party websites (application buttons), which allow you to share content from our Site or your opinion with other people via social media (YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.). When you use these sharing buttons, a third-party cookie is installed. This applies notably to the ‘Share’, ‘Like’, ‘g+1’, and ‘Tweet’ buttons from social networks such as ‘Facebook’, ‘Google+’, ‘Twitter’, etc. If you interact through content from third-party websites, for example by clicking on the ‘Like’ button or by leaving a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted to the social network and published on your profile.
Social networks providing such application buttons may be able to identify you through this button, even if you did not use this button while viewing our site. This type of application button will allow the relevant social network to understand how you use our Site, simply because your account on the relevant social network was activated on your device (open session) as you browsed our site.
If you do not want the social network to link the information collected through our Site to your user account, you must first log out of your social network account.
In any event, you may also refuse to accept these cookies by activating the appropriate setting in your browser, as indicated in Article 4 of this Policy.
We encourage you to read the privacy policies for these social networks to take note of the purposes for which the information will be used, in particular advertising purposes, and the browsing information that they may gather through these application buttons.
3.4 Advertising cookies
A third-party advertising cookie is a cookie placed on the server by a domain different from that of the site visited. These cookies allow third-party websites to gather and store information such as user preferences and pages visited for advertising purposes or to improve their services.
The most commonly used advertising cookies are generally those used by advertising companies. They are used for tracking on a network of sites. For example, they may be used for behavioural targeting, because they can ‘recognise’ a visitor on a set of distinct websites. In such cases, the cookie from the network manager is placed or used on the pages of each site through a tag.
