Internal and third-party cookies

Cookies are downloaded to your device (e.g. your computer, smartphone or tablet) via your web browser when you first visit the Site.

The next time you visit the Site from the same device, the cookie and the information it contains is sent back either to the site that created it (internal cookie) or to a different website to which it belongs (third-party cookie).

Both internal and third party cookies track whether you have previously visited a site through your browser. In many cases, they can allow the content displayed to be modified, for example to provide you with personalised offers.

If you reject the use of all cookies, neither internal nor third-party cookies will be used. There will be no distinction between the two types of cookies.

Permanent and session cookies

Depending on their lifetime, cookies can be “permanent” or “session” cookies.

A permanent cookie is a cookie that is stored on your computer until it expires or you delete it.

A session cookie, on the other hand, is deleted when you close your browser.

When you first visit the Site, you will be asked to accept or decline all cookies or to set your preferences by purpose. Thereafter, you will be able to change your choices at any time, as detailed in the “managing your cookie preferences” section of this Policy.
