2.4. Cookies

This section describes our cookie guidelines and serves to explain how we process cookies and how you can influence this processing.

When you visit our website, information about the browsing behaviour of the device you are using (computer, tablet, smartphone etc.) is stored on your device in the form of cookie files. These guidelines aim to give you a clearer understanding of the source and usage of this browsing information and the rights that you have in this regard, such as the right to object.

2.4.1. What are cookies?

A cookie is a tracker, a small computer file which is stored and read when a user visits a website, reads an e-mail or installs and uses software or a mobile application, regardless of the type of device used (computer, smartphone, digital reader, games console connected to the internet etc.). When a user accesses a website, cookies can send information to the user’s browser and allow it to send information back to the original website (such as a session ID or the language settings). Only the cookie owner can read and edit the data the cookies contain.

2.4.2. What are cookies used for on this website?

Cookies are generally used on a website in order to offer users additional functionality. For example, they can be used to aid website navigation, to continue using a website from where you left off, and to save preferences and settings for when you next visit the website. Cookies cannot access, read or edit any other data on your computer.

Most of the cookies on our website are what are known as session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you leave our website. By contrast, persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them manually in your browser. We use these persistent cookies to recognise you when you visit our website again.

This website also uses the following different types of cookies:

Technical cookies

These cookies serve to allow or facilitate electronic communication (detecting connection problems, identifying connection points, website security etc.), or, if you wish, to provide online communication services (screen display preferences, saving data entered in forms or tables, shopping baskets [if applicable], access to your user account etc.).

There are no means to object to the use of these cookies.

Social cookies

These cookies serve to make the website more interactive and easier to use by supporting interaction with social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.).

Among other things, they can see the number of posts shared over social networks, recognise that you have a social network account and track your browsing behaviour on websites, functions which are made possible by third-party applications embedded in our website. Each social network linked to via a button on our website will almost certainly be able to identify you as a user, even if you have not clicked on the button when visiting our website. In fact, each social network may be authorised to track your browsing behaviour on our website via these buttons, if your account on that social network is active on your device (open session) while you visit our website.

We therefore recommend that you consult the data protection declarations published by these social networks to find out how they use the information collected via these buttons, in particular for advertising purposes. These data protection guidelines should allow you to specify your preferences when using these social networks by configuring your user account settings for each of them.

Usage and storage of these cookies requires your consent.

Advertising cookies

These cookies serve to display more relevant adverts and content on this website and on third-party websites. When we display or send you advertising content, the aim is to provide you with the most relevant adverts and offers that are tailored to your needs or wishes and will likely be of genuine interest to you.

Usage and storage of these cookies requires your consent.

Analytics cookies

These cookies serve to analyse user traffic and improve your browsing experience.

The collected data includes process data from the visited websites, the time spent on the visited websites, the browser used to visit the websites, etc.

2.5. YouTube plugins

Our website sometimes uses plugins from YouTube, a site run by Google. The operator of the sites is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
