Personal data may also be made accessible to the Company’s service providers (especially for the purposes of hosting the Website and the payment of orders). In this case, Customers’ personal data may only be notified to third parties for the purposes envisaged in the present informative notice or subject to receiving your consent. Service providers act in accordance with the Company’s instructions, and are required to put in place appropriate measures to protect personal data.
Customers’ personal data are collected for the following purposes:

- for a period of thirteen (13) months starting from their introduction/creation (in the case of cookies).
3. Exercising of rights relating to personal data
In accordance with the GDPR, Customers benefit from:
- a right of access, rectification, erasure and portability of the personal data concerning them;

In order to exercise one or more Data Protection Rights, Customers must send a request by electronic mail to email@example.com.
Each request to exercise Information Data Protection Rightsshall be signed and accompanied by the photocopy of an identity document bearing the Customer’s signature and specifying the address to which the Company should reply. The reply to the request exercised on the basis of one or more Data Protection Rights will be addressed within a maximum time limit of two (2) months starting from the receipt of the request by the Company.
The Customer also benefits from a right of appeal to a national regulatory authority such as the French National Commission for Data Protection Rights in the event of any breach of the regulations applicable in terms of the protection of personal data, and specifically the GDPR.

When visiting this Website, certain items of information relating to Customers’ browsing habits are likely to be recorded in files called “Cookies” installed on their terminals (computers, tablets, mobile phones or any other device enhanced so as to use the Internet). These cookies are issued by the Company in order to better meet the Customers’ expectations and improve their online experience.
1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that, via your browser, is placed in a dedicated space on the hard disk of Customers’ terminals during their visits to a website or when consulting an advertisement. It contains several items of personal information, and specifically the name of the server that placed it there (i.e., the server of the website that you are visiting), a username in the form of a single number and possibly an expiry date for the cookie concerned.
Cookies enable their issuer to recognise the Customers’ terminals in which they are registered, to collect data related to their browsing on websites and to propose personalised services to them. Cookies do not contain any information that identifies the Customer personally and which only the issuer of the cookies can read or modify in terms of the information contained in them.
3. The management of cookies by Customers
Customers may control and manage the installation of these cookies on their terminal by adjusting their browser settings.
It is thus possible to set the browser in such a way as to accept or reject all cookies either systematically or according to their issuer. It is also possible for Customers to choose to be automatically informed when a cookie is registered on their terminal.
In order to benefit from greater control in terms of management of cookies, Customers may set their browser in such a way that the acceptance or refusal of cookies is occasionally proposed, before a cookie is likely to be placed on its hard disk by the server of the website that the Customer visits.
