We ensure an appropriate level of security, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing as well as the risks and likelihood thereof.
However, it should be noted that no security measure is infallible and we cannot guarantee absolute security for your personal data.

5. Cookies: how do we use them?
5.1 What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that may be deposited on a terminal when an online service is consulted with a browser. A cookie file allows its issuer, during its period of validity, to recognise the terminal concerned each time this terminal accesses digital content containing cookies from the same issuer.
In any event, cookies deposited on your browsing terminal with your consent are destroyed 13 months after their deposit on your terminal.
5.2 What is the purpose of the cookies issued on our Site?
The cookies we issue allow us to
to establish statistics and volumes of traffic and use of the various elements making up our Site (sections and content visited, path), enabling us to improve the interest and ergonomics of the Site and our products and services;
to adapt the presentation of our Site to the display preferences of your terminal (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) during your visits to our Site, according to the hardware and software for viewing or reading that your terminal has;
to memorise information relating to a form that you have filled in on our Site (registration or access to your account) or to products, services or information that you have chosen on our Site (subscribed service, contents of an order basket, etc.);
to allow you to access reserved and personal areas of our Site, such as your Account, thanks to identifiers or data that you may have previously entrusted to us and to implement security measures, for example when you are asked to connect again to a content or a service after a certain period of time.
When you browse the Site, cookies from social networks may be generated, in particular via the sharing buttons, which collect personal data.
When you first visit the Site, a cookie banner will appear on the home page. A clickable link allows you to find out more about the purpose and operation of cookies and refers you to this Charter.
Continuing to browse on another page of the site or selecting an element of the Site (in particular: image, text, link, etc.) signifies your acceptance of the deposit of the cookies concerned on your computer.
5.3 How can you control the cookies used?
You can configure your browser software at any time so that cookies are stored in your terminal or, on the contrary, that they are rejected (either systematically or according to their sender). You can also configure your browser software so that you are offered the option of accepting or rejecting cookies from time to time, before a cookie is stored in your terminal.
We decline all responsibility for the consequences linked to the degraded functioning of our services resulting from the impossibility of recording or consulting the cookies necessary for their functioning and which you would have refused or deleted. This would be the case if you attempted to access our content or services that require you to be identified. This would also be the case if we (or our service providers) were unable to recognise, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by your terminal, its language and display settings or the country from which your terminal appears to be connected to the Internet.
