The GDPR sets the framework for the collection, use and storage of users’ personal data in order to protect them. “Personal data” is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, whether direct or indirect.

What are cookies used for?
A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer by a website you visit. Cookies often store the settings you select for a website, such as your preferred language or location. This enables the website to show you personalized information that reflects your needs, making your navigation easier.
What type of cookies are used on our website?
“Analytical” cookies intended to analyse website traffic (e.g. the most frequently viewed pages, number of pages viewed for each visit, etc.). For this purpose, we use the Google Analytics service, which respects the privacy of our users. All browsing data collected is anonymised.
The “Facebook pixel”, if you agree, will detect the Facebook account you are currently logged into. It will allow us to know how many visitors to our site have arrived via our Facebook ads, and in turn allow us to display our ads on your profile, or on profiles similar to yours. This allows us to assess the relevance of our ads and to improve them later. The Facebook Pixel does not allow us to identify you personally or access your Facebook account. These cookies are important, as they allow us to measure the relevance of our content, and thus adapt our site to better meet your search needs. We do not store sensitive personal information such as your address, password, credit or debit card information, etc. in the cookies we use.
Cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months.
