Use of cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that appear as small files which we send to the hard drive of your computer with the help of your Web browser or other programs. They permit our systems to recognize your browser and improve our service offers. We only use “session cookies” which stay in your computer until you close your Internet browser and are then automatically deleted. They cannot read any information you have registered on your hard drive, they can in no way damage your computer or data, and they contain no viruses.

With the help of cookies, we can compile statistics regarding Internet access in order to check if our offer is indeed useful and interesting for our clients. Cookies do not register any person-specific data. The statistical processing is based on the ID number you were given which reveals absolutely no personal information about the person. You can either accept cookies or refuse them. Most Internet browsers accept cookies in standard, but you may configure your browser to refuse all of them.

The help facility on the menu bar of most Internet browsers explains how you can configure your browser to no longer register or accept new cookies, how to be warned each time a new cookie arrives, or how to deactivate all cookies received.

Since the global framework of data protection changes very quickly, we must reserve the right to modify, without notice, this privacy policy, as well as our terms of use, to comply with the modified laws or the new jurisprudence. The current published version is the only version in force.
