  1. The use of cookies

When browsing the Website, information concerning the surfer’s navigation using his terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) may be recorded in files known as “cookies” (connection identifiers) installed on this device, subject to (i) the choices mentioned below, expressed by the surfer concerning the said cookies (these choices may be modified at any time) and (ii) the configuration settings of the web browser software used.

What is a “cookie”?

A cookie is a series of information, generally of a small size and identified by a name, which can be recorded on your browser by a website you visit. Your web browser installs it for a certain period of time and it will be communicated to the web server whenever you reconnect. Cookies are used for several purposes: they may be used to memorise your username, making it possible to trace your navigation for statistical or advertising purposes etc.
The length of time for which information is stored concerning the surfer’s browsing details supplied by cookies on the Website will not exceed thirteen months.

The cookies enable the GIP to achieve the following without personally identifying the surfer:

  • To memorise information concerning a form he has completed on the Website or concerning products, services or information he has selected or consulted on the Website;
  • To enable the surfer to access reserved and personal areas on the Website such as his account area, using login information or data supplied previously;
  • To deploy security measures, for example when the surfer is requested to log in once again to access particular content or a service after a certain period of time has lapsed;
  • To learn more about the use and performance of the Website, to prepare statistics, traffic volumes and usage information concerning the various aspects of the Website (content visited, click-through routes) enabling us to improve the relevance and user-friendliness of services (the pages or sections most often viewed, the articles most frequently read, etc.).

The recording of the cookie on the device is essentially subject to the preferences of the terminal user, preferences which the user may express or modify at any time, free of charge.

Surfers have several possibilities for managing cookies, with it being hereby stipulated that any changes to the settings made by the surfer may modify his browsing experience on the Internet and the conditions for accessing certain services requiring the use of “cookies”:

  • The surfer may configure his browser software to allow cookies to be recorded on his device or, on the contrary, to have this device reject them either systematically or depending on the issuer. He may also configure his browser software to propose accepting or refusing cookies on a case-by-case basis, before the cookie is recorded on his device;
  • If the surfer accepts the recording of cookies on his browser software, the cookies included within the pages and content he consults may be stored temporarily in a dedicated area on his device. These can only be read by the issuer;
  • If on the other hand the surfer refuses the recording of cookies on his device, or if he deletes those already recorded there, he will no longer be able to benefit from a number of functions and features required in order to browse certain areas of the Website. This is the case if he wishes to access content or services requiring him to log in or when the GIP (or its technical partners) are unable to recognise the type of browser used by the surfer’s terminal, his language and display settings or the country from which the said terminal appears to be connected to the Internet, for its/their technical records.

In this case, the GIP declines all liability concerning the consequences related to the impaired operation of its Website and/or its services resulting from the fact that it is impossible to record or consult the cookies necessary to their operation, which the surfer has refused or deleted.

Managing your browser’s cookie settings
When configuring your browser, at any time you may decide (free of charge) to activate cookies or otherwise in your browser. This setting enables you to accept or refuse all cookies, or to deal with them on a case-by-case basis. Totally preventing the recording of cookies on your browser may result in problems when browsing websites.

Each browser enables surfers to manage cookies and their choices differently. The help menu of each browser describes how to go about this.
