Information about the use of the site

To constantly improve our site and adapt it to your needs we are required to collect some information such as the overall usage of our site, for instance which sectionsare the most often accessed, what is the connection time and the average connection time.

To obtain this information we make use of the following technical means:

IP address: An IP address (Internet Protocol) is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you surf the Net. The servers managing the homepages are able to identify your computer through this number. This allows us to obtain detailed reports on the accesses to the site per IP address. However, we don't make any link between the IP address and the collected personal data.

Cookies: Cookies are bits of elements of information that a web site can send to a visitor's hard drive. The cookies allow you to surf faster and easier by saving your preferences whilst being connected to a site. It is important that you are aware of the following:

  • Your passwords and/or numbers of credit cards are NEVER stored in the cookies.
  • Most web browsers are initially configured to accept cookies. You can change your browser settings to prevent or notify you whenever you are sent a cookie but disabling cookies may result in difficulties to access some parts of our site.
  • Third party companies managing advertisements on our site may also send cookies to your hard drive. The sending of advertising cookies by third parties' servers is a widespread process in the Net on which we have no control.

 

Online advertising

When delivering banners, buttons, pop-up windows or similar ad formats on our site, no personal user data such as name, address, phone number or email address is collected.

Our service provider temporarily stores anonymous user data only (operating system, browser version, etc.) and whether the user responded (clicks) to the delivered ad. The anonymous data is only used in aggregated form to deliver targeted advertisements.

Our service provider ensures that usage data or usage profiles will not be associated with personal data or that online user profiles are combined with possible offline address data.

Our service provider only uses cookies in order to optimise the delivery of ads to the user. In these cases the frequency of ads delivered to a unique user/URL can be capped and therefore the quality of advertising increased.

 

Direct marketing

We use email and direct mail as a way of keeping you up-to-date about the innovations of our products, services and offers that may be of interest to you (e.g. new services or content features). These communications may also offer special incentives that we hope will prompt you to try something new at our site.

Nonetheless, we maintain a practice of permitting persons to be excluded from such communications but you will not be dropped from receiving functional (such as site enhancements, scheduled downtime), commercial (such as modification of existing products and services, modification of prices) or legal notifications (such as disclaimers).
