The use of such data is intended to allow the proper operation of the website, the diagnosis/prevention of technical problems, the identification of unauthorised access and/or any abuse of the various services offered by the site and to gather anonymous statistical information on the use of the site. The data will be deleted following processing.


As regards the use of cookies or permanent user tracking systems, access to the site may involve the sending of text files from the servers to the user’s computer terminal in order to obtain information on his/her browsing behaviour.

Irrespective of the presence of any cookies, the following information will be recorded for all accesses to the site: browser type (e.g. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Netscape, etc.), operating system (e.g. Windows, Macintosh, Linux, etc.), the host and URL of origin of the visitor, as well as the data regarding the page requested. Such data will be used in anonymous form for the statistical analysis of site use.

The use of so-called session cookies (which are not stored in a persistent manner on the user’s computer and thus disappear when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of the session identification data (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to permit the safe and efficient exploration of the site.

The operation of cookies can simply and easily be disabled at any time in your browser’s configuration options.
