The purpose of this Cookies Policy is to inform you precisely about the processing of your personal data.
All our staff and operators who have access to individual data and are involved in its processing are required to respect its confidentiality.
- Definition : what is a cookie ?
A cookie is a small text file placed on your terminal (computer, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website. It allows its issuer to identify your terminal in which it is stored, for the duration of the validity of the cookie concerned. Only the sender of the cookie is likely to read or modify the information contained therein.
Yes, we use session cookies to better serve visitors to the platform.
However, no personal data is collected via a cookie.
The cookies issued on our site are used for the purposes described below.
- Cookies issued on the website :
We use two (2) types of cookies :
- The visitor session cookie (joomla_user_state) ;
- The user session cookie which allows us to detect if a visitor is connected or not on the platform (example: 2b421cd06d0c5618c3f7257fed0db040 - the name of this cookie is different for each user).
As the name suggests, session cookies are temporary and expire as soon as you leave the session. They are only used to assign a specific session to the user. A major advantage of the session ID is that if you open several windows of the same web page, they are assigned to a single session.
This makes it possible to run several applications at the same time without losing important personal information.
Session cookies are therefore used to store information about the current session.
Other information, such as login details or previously completed online forms, is also retained during the session.
However, if you end your browsing session, the session ID and all other stored data will be deleted. This means that when you open the same web page in a new browser window, you will be considered as a new visitor.
- Retention period
As previously stated, the cookies we place on your terminals are automatically deleted when the session ends.
- How do you manage your cookie choices ?
Depending on the type of browser, you have the following options : accept or reject cookies from any source or from a given source, or program the display of a message asking for your consent each time a cookie is placed on your terminal. To express or change your choices, please refer to the help menu or the dedicated section of your browser.
