Personal data collected automatically
When you browse this website, your computer communicates with a server that provides all the requested resources by automatically registering each operation in a specific file in which your computer is identified by its IP address.
In this way, your browser automatically forwards certain standard data to us.
In addition to your IP address, this particularly relates to the type of browser you use, its functions, your operating system, the identity of the third-party website (Facebook, Twitter etc.) from which you may have connected and the date and time at which you accessed the website.
This automatic collection allows us to monitor general activity on the website, to identify errors and to ensure that the website has suitable hardware resources.
These data, and particularly your IP address, do not allow us to identify you by name without asking your access provider, which is only possible within the context of legal proceedings.
Like many commercial websites, we collect information automatically each time you visit this website (pages, links, documents consulted, number of bytes transferred, etc.).
This personal information concerning you helps to simplify your perusal of this website by avoiding the need for you to provide the same information each time you visit or by customising the website content to the preferences or focuses of interest that you may have expressed.
This website sends cookies for the same reason.
Some of these cookies, particularly those relating to your browsing of the website, are deleted automatically at the end of your session. They are retained for the statutory periods for marketing to customers and prospective customers.
Others are used in aggregate form, and thus anonymously, to allow us to make browsing more user friendly and to identify the areas of interest for internet users as a whole.
You can also delete cookies stored on your computer in order to permanently remove the information they contain.
