The cookies used by this website are stored on your computer, tablet, smartphone or other device allowing Internet browsing (the "Terminal"), subject to the choices about cookies you have expressed, which may be changed at any time, using our preference management tool or your browser settings.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that make it possible to record certain items of information about your browsing; they are saved on the hard disk of your Terminal when you visit a website.

Cookies are sent by the website's server to your browser.

Cookies can be used to authenticate a user or store specific information about the user, such as the preferences of a website or the content of an e-shopping basket, all for duration of the validity of the cookie concerned; the cookie's actual content can only be edited by the INFPC. Thus cookies make it possible to collect certain information in order to be able to offer you personalised services that match your needs.

As indicated on the information banner, by continuing to browse our website you accept the deposit of certain categories of cookies on your Terminal. You may change your decision on this at any time and oppose the deposit of cookies via our preference management tool or your browser's settings.

Why uses cookies

The INFPC uses three types of cookie on this website: (i) browser cookies (essential), (ii) session cookies (essential), and (iii) analytics cookies (optional).

Cookies are said to be 'essential' if they are necessary for activating the website's basic functions, such as a safe connection to your user space. They are activated automatically when you use the website and log on.

Cookies are optional if they make it possible to gather information about your use of the website but are not essential.

Whether they are essential or optional, cookies may also be functional, for example files that enable other functions, such as saving preferences, social interactions, the possibility of posting comments on our website, and analysis of your use in order to optimise the website.

Browser cookies (essential)

Cookies of this type are used to improve the user's comfort during subsequent visits to this website. They make it possible to save your preferred language, your acceptance of cookies, and your participation in any satisfaction surveys the INFPC may propose on its website.

Session cookies (essential)

Cookies of this type are used in the personal workspace; they make it possible to know whether the user has been authenticated or not.

Analytics cookies (optional)

Cookies of this type are generated by Google Analytics to distinguish between a user's successive sessions, and by Hotjar to gain a better understanding of our users' needs and optimise user experience on our website. They allow us, for example, to understand the amount of time spent on any one page, links clicked on, and more generally browsing habits, etc., thereby enabling us to improve our service.
