1/ Cookies

Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. Cookies allow the web server to remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to maintain a virtual session. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

When the volume of information is significant, the web site records on the client’s computer only an identifier (a unique number assigned to the user). Information is then stored locally on the server’s side, but is connected to the user through the identifier contained in the cookie.

2/ Audience measurement

In order to provide our visitors with a better service, we measure the number of page views, the number of visits, the different actions performed by visitors on our site, the localisation of our visitors and the number of times visitors return to our site. For this purpose, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

In case IP-anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP-anonymisation is active on this website.

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP-address that your Browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

You can opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for your current web browser:
