What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that can be saved in a dedicated area of the hard drive of your electronic equipment when you use your browser to view an online service. A cookie file allows its sender to identify the device in which it is stored, during the period of validity or registration of the cookie.
What is the purpose of cookies?
Cookies serve a multitude of purposes. In addition to the fact that certain cookies are essential to the use of our site, they allow:
The improvement of your navigation on our site and the customisation of the content displayed by allowing us to recognise you and log in automatically, notably by saving the settings and preferences you have selected during previous visits.
The measurement and analysis of the use and usage of the various elements that make up our site (headings and content visited, browsing) in order to improve the benefits and usability of the services, as well as the visibility of the published contents.
The adjustment of the presentation of our site to the display preferences of your device (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) during your visits to the site, depending on the hardware and viewing or reading software of your device.
The memorisation of information on forms you fill out on our site (contact or booking requests).
The sharing of information with advertisers on other websites in order to provide you with relevant advertisements that match your interests. For this reason, we use advertising cookies
to limit the number of advertisements displayed.
Cookies issued on our site by third parties
Our site is likely to contain cookies issued by third parties allowing them, during the period of validity of their cookies, to collect browsing information relating to the browsers visiting our site and to determine the advertising content likely to correspond to your interests in order to send you targeted advertising with regard to your browsing history collected by the third party.
Cookies embedded in third-party applications
The Industrial Hive may include on the site computer applications from third parties, which allow you to share site content with other people or to let these other people know your viewing of or your opinion regarding the content of our site. This is especially the case for the “Share” and “Like” buttons on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn etc.
The social network is likely to identify you through this button, even if you have not used it when visiting our site. This type of application button may allow the social network concerned to track your browsing on our site, simply because your social network account was activated on your browser (open session) during your browsing on our site.
The Industrial Hive does not control the process used by social networks to collect information relating to your browsing our site. The Industrial Hive invites you to consult the privacy policies of these social networks in order to be aware of the purposes of use, including advertising, of the browsing information that they may collect through these application buttons. These protection policies must particularly allow you to exercise your choices on these social networks, especially when setting your user accounts on each of these networks.
What if you share your device with others?
If your device is used by more than one person and the same device has more than one browser, the Industrial Hive cannot be certain that the services and advertising intended for your device correspond to your own use of that device and not to that of another user of that device.
Where appropriate, the sharing with others of the use of your device and the configuration of your browser settings with regard to cookies, are your free choice and your responsibility.
For more information on cookies and their use, you can consult the French Data Protection Authority file at the following address: https://www.cnil.fr/fr/site-web-cookies-et-autres-traceurs.
What are your rights regarding cookie management?
You can manage your cookies:
Note: your unsubscription is dependent on a cookie. Consequently, if you deactivate all the cookies on your device or change your device, we will no longer know if you have chosen this option.
1) Managing your cookies through your navigation software
You can configure your navigation software so that cookies are either recorded in your device or rejected, automatically or by their sender.
You can also configure your navigation software so that the acceptance or rejection of cookies is offered to you on an ad hoc basis before a cookie is likely to be stored on your device. For more information, see “How to exercise your choices, depending on the browser you are using”.
2) Managing your cookies online through inter-professional platforms
You can also connect to the Youronlinechoices website, http://www.youronlinechoices.com/fr/controler-ses-cookies/., provided by digital advertising professionals grouped within the EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance) and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France, or any other platform that offers this type of service.
This European platform is shared by internet advertising professionals and is a centralised interface allowing you to express your rejection or acceptance of the cookies used to adapt the ads to your device’s navigation (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/fr/controler-ses-cookies/).
However, this procedure will not prevent advertisements from being displayed on the websites you visit. It will only block the technologies that enable advertising to be adapted to your interests.
