2. Purposes of cookies used
Some of the cookies used by the Publisher are intended solely to enable or facilitate electronic communication (detection of connection errors, identification of connection points, etc.).

Cookies allow the content of this website to be shared using sharing buttons. Activating this feature on the website triggers the deposit of cookies.
The social network providing such an application button may identify you with this button, even if you did not use this button during your visit to our Website. This type of application button can enable the social network concerned to track your browsing on our Website, simply because your account on the social network concerned was activated on your device (session opened) during your browsing on our Website.
We have no control over the process used by social networks to collect information relating to your browsing of our Website and associated with the personal data they have in their possession. We invite you to consult the privacy policies of these social networks in order to understand the purposes of use, particularly advertising, of the browsing information that they may collect through these application buttons. These protection policies should enable you to exercise your choices with these social networks, in particular by configuring your user accounts for each of these networks:

5.2 Interest-based advertising preference platforms
Several platforms of advertising professionals also offer you the possibility of refusing or accepting cookies used by their member companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of advertisements. They only prevent the installation of cookies to tailor advertisements to your areas of interest.
