2.5 Sharing cookies (social networks)

We may include on our Site computer applications from third parties, which allow you to share content from our Sites and/or applications with other people or to share with them your views or opinions regarding content on our Sites and/or applications. This is particularly the case for the "Share", "I like" buttons, which come from social networks such as "Facebook", "Pinterest", "Instagram", "Twitter", etc.

The social network providing such an application button is likely to identify you through this button, even if you did not use this button when visiting our Sites and/or applications. Indeed, this type of application button may allow the relevant social network to track your browsing on our Sites and/or applications simply because your account on the relevant social network was activated on your Device (open session) during your browsing on our Site.

We have no control over the process used by social networks to collect information about your browsing, and associated with the personal data they hold. We invite you to consult the privacy policies of these social networks in order to learn about the purposes of use, including advertising, of the browsing information they may collect through these application buttons. These protection policies must allow you to exercise your choices with these social networks, in particular by setting up your user accounts for each of these networks.

3. What is the basis for collecting cookies?

The recording of a cookie in a Device is essentially subject to the will of the user of the Device, which he can express and modify at any time and free of charge through the choices offered to him by his browser software.

If you have accepted the registration of cookies in your Device in your browser software, the cookies embedded in the pages and content you have viewed may be temporarily stored in a dedicated area of your Device. They will be readable only by their transmitter.

If you refuse to store cookies on your Device, or delete cookies stored on your Device, you will no longer be able to use the features of our Site. This would be the case if you attempted to access our content or services. This would also be the case if we - or our service providers - could not recognize, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by your Device, its language and display settings or the country from which your Device appears to be connected to the Internet.

If this happens, we decline all responsibility for the consequences related to the degraded functioning of our services resulting from the impossibility for us to record or consult the cookies necessary for their functioning and that you have refused or deleted.
