Your choices made online via inter-professional platforms

You can log into the ‘Youronlinechoices’ website, proposed by digital advertising professionals coming together within the European Association EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance) and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.

This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and constitutes a centralised interface allowing you to express your refusal or acceptance of cookies which may be used to adapt the advertisements liable to be displayed on your terminal to your browsing information. Note that this procedure does not prevent the displaying of advertisements on the websites you visit. It will only block the technology which allows the advertisements to be adapted to your centres of interest.

Adobe Flash Player™ is a computer application that allows for the rapid development of dynamic content using the computer language ‘Flash’. Flash (and similar applications) memorises the settings, preferences and use of this content through technology similar to cookies. However, Adobe Flash Player™ handles this information and your choices via a different interface from the one provided by your browser.



If we envisage obtaining navigation information related to your terminal from a third party, which we could combine with the personal data you provided, we will ask for your explicit prior consent before proceeding with such an association and sending you any resulting advertisements or surveys.

In such cases, your explicit consent would be given via a Cookie information banner warning you that ‘By continuing to browse this website, you accept the use of cookies to provide services and offers tailored to your interests'.
