Personal data collected automatically

While you are browsing on this site, your computer communicates with a server that provides it with all of the resources requested while automatically recording each operation in a specific file in which your computer is identified by its IP address.

Your browser therefore automatically sends certain standard data to us.

In addition to your IP address, the data particularly concern the type of browser you are using, its functions, your operating system, the identification of any third-party site (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) from which you may have connected and the date and time of access to the site.

This automatic data collection allows us to monitor the general activity of the site, identify errors and ensure that the site has the appropriate material resources.

These data and, in particular, your IP address do not allow us to identify you personally, unless we ask your internet service provider, which is only possible in the case of legal proceedings.

Like many commercial websites, we collect information automatically each time you visit this site (pages, links, documents viewed, number of bytes transferred, etc.).

This personal information about you helps to make your browsing of the site easier by avoiding the need for you to provide the same information on each new visit or by personalising the site’s content in accordance with any preferences or areas of interest that you may have expressed.

This site generates cookies for the same purpose.

We may use cookies to record your user ID (digital identity) to facilitate your information searches and your connection to the site, as well as to store other information relevant to the functioning of your session.

Some of these cookies, in particular those relating to your browsing history on the site, are deleted automatically at the end of your session.

They are kept for the amount of time specified by the French Data Protection Supervisory Authority (Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés – CNIL) for canvassing clients and prospective clients.

Lastly, others are used in an aggregated, and therefore anonymous, manner, to enable us to improve the browsing ergonomics and to identify the interests of internet users overall.

You are free to accept or reject these cookies. You simply need to configure certain settings in your browser to refuse cookies or to be notified if a cookie is saved onto your computer.
