4. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file issued by the server of the website that you are consulting and which is written to the hard drive of your computer or mobile device. A cookie contains a unique code that makes it possible to recognise your browser when you visit the website or during future repeated visits. Cookies can be placed by the server of the website that you are visiting or by partners with whom this website works. The server of a website can only read the cookies that itself has placed; it has no access to other information on your computer or on your mobile device. The content of a cookie is generally made up of the name of the server that placed the cookie, an expiry date and a unique encrypted code. The retention time for this data in your computer is limited to 1 year. Cookies provide interaction that is generally easier and faster between the visitor and the website (e.g. a cookie retains the consultation of specific content and won't suggest it a second time). Indeed, they memorise your preferences and as such allow you to accelerate later access to the site and make your visits easier. In addition, they help you browse through the various parts of the website. Cookies can also be used to make the content of a website or the advertisements, present on this site, more relevant for the visitor and adapt the website to the personal tastes and needs of the visitor. The use of cookies requires prior and explicit consent from you. You can always go back on the latter and refuse these cookies and/or delete them at any time, by modifying the parameters of your browser (cf. point 6).
