This is why we want to provide you with transparent information regarding how we place, use and store cookies and other trackers on your device when you use the Site and/or the Application.
1. What is a cookie or a tracker?
Cookies and other trackers are used for the function of the sites and applications and improve their ease of use.
Each cookie or other tracker is assigned an anonymous identifier. A cookie or tracker does not enable connection to a private individual. Only the issuer of a cookie or tracker can read or modify the information it contains.
Cookies and other trackers may have several functions, in particular, enabling:
− you to log in and be verified on our Site and/or our Application to provide you with services that you have requested;
− improvement of security of the Site and/or the Application including the prevention of fraudulent usage of logins and the protection of user data from access by unauthorised third parties;
− monitoring of your patterns of use on our Site and/or our Application in order to improve them;
− improvement of your user experience by adapting content on our Site and/or our Application to your areas of interest by offering you more relevant advertisements and content;
− remembering information that you have provided (for example to automatically fill in forms with information that you have previously provided for you to log in more quickly).
During use of the Site and/or the Application, you are informed that cookies or other methods of recording browsing data are used by the Site and/or by the Application or third parties, service providers for the Site and/or the Application and are placed on your device.
Following recommendations of the French National Commission for Data Protection and Liberties, you will be specifically asked whether you wish to accept cookies on your first connection to the Site.
2. Which types of cookies or trackers do we use?
The cookies and trackers that we use on our Site and/or our Application are classed in different categories.
2.2. Functional cookies and trackers
These cookies and trackers guarantee the proper function of the Site and/or the Application and enable their optimisation. They allow you to browse the Site and/or the Application and to use their functions and services. The Site and/or the Application cannot function correctly without these cookies and trackers, which is why you cannot reject them without affecting the function of our Site and/or our Application.
Certain cookies and trackers are also used for the display and calculation of contextual, non-personalised advertising. You can block or reject these by adjusting your browser settings.
Functional cookies and trackers include, for example, cookies that collect session identifiers and identification data. They also include cookies that enable us to comply with legal obligations, in particular by ensuring a secure online environment (for example by detecting repeated failed login attempts to prevent unauthorised access to your account).
2.3. Analytic cookies and trackers
These cookies and trackers collect information that is used in an aggregated form to help us to understand how visitors use our Site and/or our Application. These tools collect information and generate reports on usage statistics for the site and/or the Application without individual users having to be identified personally.
These cookies and trackers also allow measurement of the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. They help us to personalise our site and subscription to improve your experience.
These cookies and trackers allow us to recognise and measure the number of visitors on our Site and/or our Application as well as to analyse the way in which visitors browse the Site and/or the Application. This enables improvement of the way in which the Site and/or Application function by ensuring for example that it is easy for visitors to find what they want.
2.4. Marketing personalisation cookies and trackers
These cookies and trackers are used to make advertising messages more relevant according to your interests. They also prevent the same advertisement from being displayed several times, allow advertisements to be displayed correctly, and in certain cases to select advertisements according to your areas of interest.
We may also share this information with partners by use of third-party cookies and trackers. This information will be used by these partners for the purposes of online advertising, in particular, to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, to limit the display frequency (to limit the number of times that you see an advertisement), affiliate marketing, click fraud detection, market research, product improvement, debugging or any other reason.
3. Who puts cookies and trackers on your device?
When you select cookies and trackers that you authorise on your device, these may be placed by us or by a third party. These cookies and trackers are usually linked to analytical functions.
From a practical standpoint, this means that when you authorise the installation of third-party cookies and trackers on your device, the relevant third parties can access a certain amount of information concerning you (for example your browsing statistics when you authorise third-party analytics cookies).
We may place cookies and trackers on your devices, but they may also be placed directly by third parties when you use our Site and/or our Application to allow third parties to:
− provide us with a service that enables us to optimise the function of our Site and/or our Application;
− enable you to access third-party content.
Given that we do not have control over the use of these cookies and trackers by third parties, we have created a list of our partners below with a link to their cookie policies.
If you would like further information regarding these third-party cookies and trackers and the way in which you can configure them, we recommend you visit the websites of these partners and familiarise yourself with their cookie policies.
4. What type of information can be stored in a cookie or tracker?
The information stored by cookies and trackers left on your device can relate to the following elements, limited by their storage duration:
− websites that you have visited using this device;
− the advertisements that you have clicked on;
− the type of browser that you use;
− your IP address; and
− any other information that you have provided on our website (searches carried out, etc.)
5. How long are cookies and trackers stored for?
In accordance with the recommendations of the French National Commission for Data Protection and Liberties, the maximum duration for storage of cookies and other trackers is a maximum of thirteen (13) months from their initial placement on the user’s device, as well as the duration of validity of the user’s consent for the use of these cookies and other trackers.
The lifespan of cookies and trackers is not extended each visit. Your consent must be renewed beyond this timeframe.
6. How can I manage cookies and trackers?
The use of a cookie or tracker remains your decision. In accordance with legislative and regulatory dispositions, Virtuo elicits your consent prior to using cookies through the Site.
− by changing your cookie preferences, by going to the Cookie Settings page on our Site;
− by configuring the security settings on your internet browser;
− by reviewing our partners’ websites: this will let you manage your choice on sites that are not managed by Virtuo.
It is also important to note that by rejecting certain types of cookies (for example functional cookies), you prevent us from optimising your user experience on our Site and/or our Application and certain parts may not function correctly.
