What is a cookie?
We use various types of cookies, which have different functions.
Session and permanent cookies
We must first emphasise that the duration of cookies installed may be limited to the navigation session or prolonged even after the user has left the site. We privilege the use of session cookies (which are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed), which allows the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server), which are necessary to allow users to browse the website safely and efficiently. The session cookies used on this website avoid the need to use other computing techniques that could potentially compromise the privacy of users’ browsing and do not allow the user’s personal identification information to be gathered.
1. Technical cookies
These cookies are essential for browsing the website and using certain functions. Without these strictly necessary cookies, the online services normally offered by the website may not be accessible if provision of the services is based exclusively on cookies of this type. In fact, cookies of this type allow users to browse website pages efficiently and use the various options and services available. For example, they make it possible to identify a session, access reserved areas, memorize elements of a request that was made previously, finalise a purchase order and memorise a quote.
It is not necessary to give consent for technical cookies, as they are indispensable for ensuring you get the services you requested. It is possible to block or delete technical cookies by altering the option settings of your browser. However, if you do this, you may not be able to access certain areas of the website or use certain of the services offered.
2. Analytics cookies
We or suppliers of services who work on our behalf may send analytics cookies to your browser. The information gathered by analytics cookies is used exclusively by us or in our interest.
Analytics cookies gather anonymous information about how users use the website and its various functions. For example, our analytics cookies gather information about the website pages you visit most often and about our advertising that appears on other websites you use, as well as checking if you open and read notices we send you and if you receive error messages. The information gathered may be used to customise your online experience by showing you specific content. Analytics cookies also help to restrict the number of times the same advert is displayed. Our analytics cookies do not gather personal information.
In particular, the website uses Google Analytics, which is a Google analysis tool that helps website and app owners to understand how visitors interact with the content they own. A set of cookies may be used to gather information and generate website usage statistics, without Google personally identifying individual users. Besides generating website usage statistics reports, Google Analytics’ tag pixel may be used, together with advertising cookies as mentioned above, to allow us to show you the most relevant results in Google (such as Google Search) and across the web.

3. Profiling cookies
We reserve the right for us (or service providers working on our behalf) to send profiling cookies to your browser to memorise choices made (language, country or other online setting preferences) and provide the customised or optimised functions that we presume may be preferred by users or memorize users’ habits and preferences expressed during navigation. Profiling cookies may be used to offer you online services, send you advertising geared to your interests or stop you being offered services that you have turned down in the past.
We also inform you that it is technically possible to authorise advertisers or third parties to provide content and other online experiences through this website. In this case, the 3rd party involved may send its own profiling cookies to your browser and use them, as we do, to provide you with customised functions and optimise your experience of using the website. By selecting customised options and settings or functions optimised on the basis of preferences you have shown, you authorise us to use the profiling cookies required to offer you these experiences.
If you delete profiling cookies, the preferences or settings you have chosen will not be stored for future visits.
If 3rd party cookies are used, we reserve the right to indicate detailed links to the privacy policies such third parties provide.
The website may use a 3rd party remarketing tool. In this case, certain pages of the website may include a so-called “remarketing code”. This code allows browser cookies to be read and configured in order to determine what kind of announcement will be displayed, based on information relating to your visit to the website, such as, for example, the browsing route chosen, the pages you actually visit or what you have done on those pages.
The remarketing lists thus created are held in a Google server database holding all the cookie IDs associated with each list or category of interests. The information thus obtained allows only the browser to be identified and does not enable 3rd parties to identify users.
These tools allow customised adverts to be provided on the basis of users’ visits to our website.
The remarketing tools that we may use are as follows:
