Why do we inform you about cookies?
Within the LSSI-CE regulation (Law of the Society of Information and Electronic Commerce), there is a section dedicated to cookies, which requires the owners of a website that downloads third party cookies in your browser to inform the user of the type of cookies, the duration and the purpose of each cookie.
This website uses its own and third party cookies to provide you with a better surfing experience, to share content on social networks and also to obtain statistics and surfing habits of the users of this website. As a user, you can refuse the processing of data or information by blocking these cookies via your browser settings.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Among other things, cookies allow this site to store and retrieve information about your browsing habits or your computer, and depending on what information it contains and how you use your computer, it may be used to recognize you. In any case, a cookie is not a virus, Trojan horse, worm, spam, spyware or pop-up window.
Given the way the Internet and websites work, it is not always possible to use my blog to have information about cookies placed by third parties. This is especially true in cases where our site contains so-called integrated elements: Texts, documents, images or short videos stored elsewhere but displayed on this blog. Therefore, if you come across this type of cookie on this site and it is not described in our cookie list, you can tell us so that we can check this cookie and add it to the list if necessary. You can also contact the third party directly and ask them for information about the cookies they set, their purpose and duration and how they have ensured your privacy.
With most browsers, cookies can be managed in 3 different ways:
Cookies are always rejected.
With each cookie, the browser asks if the user wants to install it.
Cookies are always accepted.
The browser may also include the possibility to better determine which cookies must be accepted and which not. Normally you have these options: Reject cookies from certain domains.
Reject cookies from third parties
Accept cookies as non-persistent (they are deleted when the browser is closed). Allow the server to create cookies for another domain.
What information is stored in a cookie?
Cookies do not normally store sensitive information about you such as credit card or bank details, photos or personal information, etc. The information they store is technical, statistical, personal preferences, content customization, etc. The web server does not associate you as a person, but your web browser. If you normally browse with the Chrome browser and try to browse the same website with the Firefox browser, you will find that the website does not recognize that you are the same person, because it actually associates the information with the browser and not with the person.
What kind of cookies do exist?
Technical cookies: they are the most basic and allow, among other things, to know when a human or automated application is surfing, when an anonymous user and when a registered user is surfing, basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic website.
Analysis cookies: they collect information about the type of surfing you are currently doing, the sections you use most, the products you consult, the time of use, language, etc. Advertising cookies: they display advertising according to your navigation, country of origin, language, etc.
What are your own and third party cookies?
Your own cookies are those generated by the site you visit, and third-party cookies are those generated by external services or providers such as Mailchimp, ActiveCampaign, Amazon, Mailrelay, Facebook, Twitter, Google AdSense, etc.
