Article 2 - Cookies

 As you browse this website, we are likely to save data related to your navigation in files known as “Cookies”. These are stored on your terminal (computer, tablet, mobile phone or any other device optimised for the Internet).

We have provided this page to help you understand what a cookie is and enable you to adapt your settings. 

These cookies are used by SPBI to improve your user experience and make it easier to browse this website.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored in a dedicated space on your terminal’s hard disk, via your browser, when visiting a website or viewing an advertisement. It contains several items of data, including the name of the server that deployed it (server of the website you are visiting), an identifier in the form of a unique number and in some cases a cookie expiry date.

In using cookies a company or organization can recognize the terminal of the users on which it has been stored. It can also collect data related to how they browse websites and offer personalized services to them. We would like to reassure you that these cookies contain no private data and that only the company or organisation deploying the cookie can read or modify the data within them.

The cookies used on this website :

  • “Required cookies”: without which this site would not work properly: these memorize data you enter in forms, manage and make access to privately accessed pages secure (registration or access to your account, service required, contents of a shopping basket, etc.) 
  • “Functional cookies”: these adapt the presentation of the website to your terminal’s display preferences (language used, display resolution, etc.) and personalize your access to the site. 
  • “Analytical cookies” (or “audience measuring cookies”): these collect traffic data anonymously to build statistics and establish how often the site is visited (number of visits, page views, etc.) and to know how the elements comprising this site are used (sections and pages viewed, etc.) enabling SPBI to track and improve the quality of its services. This site uses Google Analytics, a service analysing Internet sites provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), with which we can analyse the way the site is used by its users.
  • “Social cookies”: these enable you to interact with social modules on the website (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
  • “Retargeting cookies”: these memorise your data and recognize you on another website that partially markets a similar advertisement inventory.

Managing cookies

It is important to know that you can manage and control the installation of these cookies on your terminal by changing your browser settings. 

You can also configure your browser to accept or reject all cookies either systematically or according to the name of the company deploying them. You can also choose to be informed automatically when a cookie is stored on your device.

Lastly, you can configure your browser to have greater control over the management of your cookies, by temporarily accepting or refusing cookies before they are stored on your hard disk by the server of the website you are visiting.

We therefore advise you to configure your browser's settings to meet your satisfaction.

Since all browsers are different, you will need to open the “Help” menu of your browser to find out how to change the settings related to cookies.

You will find more detailed information on how to change your settings on the most frequently used browsers here

We remind you that any alterations to the settings on your device can result in a change in browser behaviour and prevent you from accessing some of the services that require the use of cookies. If these changes are not satisfactory, you can change your cookies settings again at any time.
