  • Refusing to allow cookies on your terminal does not get rid of the ads displayed on the content you consult online. Your refusal simply stops these ads being matched to your interests, as inferred from your browsing history.
  • If your terminal is used by several people, or has several web browsers, your choices regarding cookies may not be taken into account permanently, either because you used another browser or because someone else altered your browser settings. These factors are beyond our control, so we cannot guarantee the persistence of your initial settings.
  • If you use different terminals to access our website (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc.), your preferences need to be configured on each one.
