What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on your computer when you visit websites. Information is stored in this text file, such as your choice of language for a website. When you visit the website again later, this cookie is sent back to the website in question. In this way, the website recognizes your browser and can, for example, remember your choice of language.
Cookies usually also have an expiration date. Some cookies are, for example, automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others remain on your computer for a longer period of time, sometimes even until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).
We use several different types of cookies, and each type serves a different purpose. You can learn more about cookies and their functions in general by visiting an informational site such as allaboutcookies.org.
We may use local shared objects, sometimes known as Flash cookies, to remember your preferences or to display content based on what you are viewing on our site to personalize your visit. Our advertisers and third-party service providers may also use Flash cookies to collect and store data. Flash cookies differ from browser cookies in the amount, type, and manner in which data is retained. The cookie management tools available on your browser will not delete Flash cookies. Please see the last section of these Cookie Terms for information on how to disable Flash cookies.
If you disable Flash cookies, you will no longer have access to many features that facilitate your customer experience, and some of our services will not function properly.
What are the different types of cookies that may be used?
The cookies that may be used on this website fall into four different categories, described below. These descriptions may help you determine how you would like to interact with our websites and other online services.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to navigate this website and use some of its features. Without these strictly necessary cookies, the online services you request, such as shopping carts, or invoice presentations during checkout, cannot be provided to you.
Your consent is not required for strictly necessary cookies because they are required for us to provide you with the requested services.
We (or service providers operating on our behalf) may place performance cookies on your device. The information we collect using performance cookies is used only by us or for our benefit.
Our performance cookies collect anonymous information about how you use this website and its features. For example, our performance cookies collect information about which pages of this site you visit most frequently, whether you open or read communications we send to you, which advertisements you view or interact with on this website or other websites on which our advertisements appear, and whether you receive error messages. The information we collect may be used to personalize your online experience by displaying content that we hope you will enjoy. Our performance cookies may also be used to limit the number of times you see the same ad. Our performance cookies do not collect personally identifiable information about you; however, if you have an account with us, information collected by us through performance cookies may be associated with your account.
We may also allow third party advertisers to place performance cookies on your device through their advertisements on this website. The information collected by third party performance cookies is used to determine which third party advertisements to display, how often, and where those advertisements perform best on this website. These third party performance cookies do not collect personally identifiable information.
We provide a notice and link to these Cookie Terms at the bottom of each page of this website. By using and continuing to use this website and its features, you agree that we (as well as third party advertisers on this website) may place performance cookies on your device.
You may delete or manage performance cookies as described in the last section of these Cookie Terms.
We (or service providers operating on our behalf) may place our functionality cookies on your device. We do not share information collected through our functionality cookies with our advertisers or other third parties.
Our functionality cookies allow us to remember choices you make (such as your preferred language, country, or other online settings). They also allow us to provide you with customized or enhanced features that you select. Our functionality cookies may be used to provide you with online services, or to prevent certain online services from being offered to you if you have previously indicated that you do not wish to receive them.
Our functionality cookies collect anonymous information; however, if you have an account with us, the information we collect with our functionality cookies may be associated with your account.
In some cases, we may allow an advertiser or other third party to provide you with content and other online experiences, whether on this website or on one of our online services. In this case, the third party may place its functionality cookies on your device and use them in the same way we use ours, to provide you with customized or enhanced features in connection with the third party’s content or experience.
By selecting personalized options, custom settings or enhanced features, you consent to our (and authorized third parties’) use of functionality cookies to provide you with these personalized experiences.
If you delete these functionality cookies, any preferences or settings you have chosen will not be retained for future visits.

Des annonceurs tiers, des réseaux de publicité, des sociétés d’échange de données, des sociétés d’analyse des marchés et autres fournisseurs de services peuvent placer des cookies de publicité ciblée sur votre appareil.

Ad networks may share this information with advertisers who use their network. The information collected through these third-party targeted advertising cookies does not identify you personally.
