Personal data

In general, we will use your personal data to reply to your queries, to process an order or to allow you access to specific information or offers.

When you access our websites or download a file, data on this operation are stored in a log file on our web server. Such data are not personalized. So we cannot trace which user has queried which data.

We use this information solely to establish the appeal of our websites and to improve their content.

IP addresses

To enable you to use our websites anonymously, we consciously dispense with logging IP addresses.

We use the pseudonymized IP addresses, eg to identify and combat attacks or to produce web statistics.

If you do not wish us to recognize your computer, please set your internet browser so that it deletes cookies from your hard drive, blocks all cookies or warns you before a cookie is stored.
