Cookies Management Policy

1. Statement on the use of cookies

When you visit our website (hereinafter the “Site”) cookies are placed on your computer, tablet or any terminal used by you.

This allows us (hereinafter the “Publisher” or “Casper BidCo” whose information is available here) to analyse page traffic and to improve the Site. Cookies are used according to their nature and for the following purposes.

The User can also accept or refuse cookies by using the mechanism integrated in the banner or the tools described below.

2. What is a Cookie?

A cookie or a tracker (hereinafter the “Cookie(s)”) is a text file deposited on a terminal when visiting the Site or when viewing an advertisement. The purpose of a Cookie is to collect information relating to the User’s browsing on the Site and to send the User personalised services and content.

3. Identification of Cookies

There are different types of cookies:

a. Third-party and proprietary cookies

A Cookie is called “proprietary” or “third-party” depending on the domain from which it originates. Proprietary cookies are those installed by the Site when the User is viewing it. Third-party cookies are cookies installed by a domain other than the one of the Site (for example, a cookie may be placed on the Site by a third-party media sales house). When a User visits the Site and another entity installs a Cookie through the Site, that Cookie is a Third-Party Cookie.

b. Session cookies

These cookies allow the operators of the Site to track the actions of a User during a browsing session. The browsing session begins when the User opens the browser window and ends when the User closes the browser window. Session cookies are temporary in nature. Once the browser is closed, all session cookies are deleted.

c. Persistent cookies

These Cookies remain on the User’s device after the User’s browser session has been closed, for the period of time set for each of these Cookies. They are activated each time the User views the Site.

4. What types of cookies does the Publisher use and why?

Different types of cookies are used on the Site for different purposes. Some are required to use the Site, while others are optional depending on your choices.

a. Cookies and other trackers that are strictly necessary

These cookies are necessary for the functioning of the Site. They allow the User to use the main features of the Site. Without these Cookies, the User cannot use the Site normally. These cookies only require information from the User to be deposited on the User’s terminal and do not allow any behavioural or identification tracking. These cookies do not collect any personal information.

b. Cookies and Other Functional Trackers

These Cookies allow the User’s experience on the Site to be personalised by storing their session data (such as the username, language or geographical area in which the User is located), their preferences, and in particular allow:

  • to adapt the presentation of the Site to the display preferences of the terminal (language used, etc.) during Users’ visits to the Site, depending on the equipment and browsers;
  • to store information relating to forms that the User has filled in on the Site or information that the User has selected on the Site;
  • to offer the User access to their account or any other reserved area thanks to their identifiers;
  • to implement security measures, for example when the User is asked to reconnect to a content or service after a certain period of time has passed.

c. Cookies and other performance trackers

The audience measurement cookies help to establish statistics on the number of visitors and the use of the various elements constituting the Site (sections and content viewed, routes). They enable the Publisher to improve the interest and ergonomics of the Site.

d. Google Analytics

These cookies enable us to obtain statistics on the number of visits to our site (e.g. number of visits, most viewed pages, etc.). We use this data to identify any problems with the site and to make improvements. The following data may be collected in this context: http request, browser information, language, referrer, identifier, IP address and transmitted to the Google Analytics servers in the USA.

In accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR, Google has set up Standard Contractual Clauses to provide safeguards for this transfer.
However, it is not certain that these safeguards prevent the American intelligence services from accessing the data in question or make such access ineffective.

They can also be cross-referenced with other data sources to be used for advertising targeting.

5. How can the User manage Cookies and Trackers?

At the time of their first connection, the User is informed that the Publisher’s partners and any other identified third-party may deposit Cookies via the Site. Only the sender of a Cookie is likely to read the information contained therein and the Publisher has no access to the Cookies that third-parties may use. The issuance and use of Cookies by third-parties is governed by the privacy policies of these third-parties in addition to the provisions of this Policy. Consequently, the User is asked to visit the websites of these third-parties for more information about the Cookies they store and how the User can manage them.

The management by the User of the deposit of Cookies/Trackers

The User can manage the deposit of Cookies/Trackers in the following way:

  • The deposit of strictly necessary technical Cookies is activated by default and cannot be deactivated by the User, as these Cookies are essential to the Site’s functioning;
  • The User can deactivate or activate the installation of Cookies subject to their consent (behavioural analysis Cookies, advertising Cookies, etc.) using the information banner or by going through the Cookies Settings link (at the bottom of the site). Any deactivation entails the User’s refusal to deposit the Cookie in question.
  • By continuing to browse, i.e. when the User has clicked on an element of the Site (image, link, “search” button, etc.) or has gone to another page of the Site, the User validates the installation of Cookies, according to the offered default settings.

If the User activates the storage of Cookies on their terminal, the Cookies integrated in the pages and contents that they have viewed may be stored temporarily in a dedicated space on their terminal. They will only be readable by the sender. The consent given by the User is only valid for a period of six (6) months from the first deposit on the User’s terminal equipment, following the expression of the User’s consent.

If the User disables the storage of Cookies on their terminal or browser, or if they delete those stored there, the User is informed that their browsing and experience on the Site may be different from other Users who have activated the Cookies (non-personalised content). This could also be the case when the Editor or one of our service-providers cannot recognise, for the purpose of technical compatibility, the type of browser used by the terminal, the language and display settings or the country from which the terminal appears to be connected to the Internet. Where applicable, the Publisher declines all responsibility for the consequences of the degraded functioning of the Site resulting from the refusal of Cookies by the User.
