2. Audience measurement cookies
Audience measurement cookies are used to obtain information about the user's browsing (examples of reasons: performance measurement, detection of browsing problems, optimisation of technical performance or ergonomics, estimating the server power required, analysis of content viewed, etc.).
Advertising cookies are related to targeted advertising, i.e. observing users' browsing habits, making it possible to create a specific profile in order to show advertisements tailored to them.

We ensure that third party services manage these cookies correctly, but we cannot be held responsible for them.

We comply with the CNIL's requirements regarding data retention periods.
Technical or essential cookies are kept for the time required to provide and operate the service.
As far as audience measurement cookies are concerned, their lifetime is no longer than 13 months. Information collected through trackers is kept for 25 months.
Other cookies are kept for a reasonable period of time necessary for the purposes for which they are used. The validity of the consent granted will not exceed 13 months.
