ANALYSIS COOKIES FOR OUR WEBSITE

Our website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. web analytics service, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (« Google »).

Based on your prior consent, Google will analyse, on our behalf, your use of our website. To do this we will use the cookies mentioned in the table above.

The information Google collects about your use of our website (for example, the reference URL, the pages you visit, your browser type, your language settings, your operating system, your screen resolution) will be sent to a Google server in the United States where it will be stored and analysed. The results of these analyses will then be returned to us in an anonymous format. We will not use your entire IP address for this purpose. We have enabled Google’s IP anonymization feature on our website so that the last 8 digits (IPv4 type) or the last 80 digits (IPv6 type) of your IP address are erased. Furthermore, Google is « EU-US Privacy Shield” certified, which ensures consistent levels of data protection when processed in the United States.

You may, at any time, revoke your consent to the use of your data for analytical purposes by downloading and installing a Google plugin or by managing your consents in the table above, using an opt-out cookie. These two options will prevent cookies only when using the browser on which you installed the plug-in, and if you do not delete the deactivation cookie.
