1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a piece of information deposited on the hard disk of your terminal by the server of the Site. This cookie or "tracer" makes it possible to identify the device on which it is stored, during the period of validity of the consent, which may not exceed 13 months after its first deposit in the user's terminal.

A cookie does not contain or record isolated information. It can be read by a server via an Internet browser and provides information that enables the Site to be more tailored to users by, among other things, recording data, user preferences, detecting errors and/or collecting data for statistical purposes. The information collected in this way is mainly used to monitor the volume, type and configuration of traffic using the Site, to develop the design and layout of the Site and for other administrative and planning purposes and more generally to improve the service we offer you.

A cookie is not harmful to your computer, does not take up much space and is automatically deleted when it expires. Some cookies expire at the end of your session, while others are kept for a specific period of time, which may not exceed 13 months after they are first deposited on your terminal's hard drive. ARC is required to obtain your consent before placing cookies on your terminal when you visit the Site. Certain cookies and tracers are exempt from your consent. These are cookies and tracers that are strictly necessary for the provision of a service expressly requested by the user.

These cookies allow us to:

-              establish statistics concerning the volume of visits to the Site (number of visits, unique visitors, pages viewed, etc.) and to compile reports and statistics concerning the use of the various elements composing it (sections and content visited, navigation paths taken);

This is notably the case for the "Share", "Like" application buttons, from social networks such as "Facebook", "Twitter", "LinkedIn", "Viadeo", etc.
