“COOKIES” AND INTERNET TAGS 1. “COOKIES”
A “cookie” is a small information file sent to the User’s browser and saved on the User’s device (e.g. computer, smartphone), (hereinafter “Cookies”). This file includes information such as the User’s domain name, the User’s Internet service provider, the User’s operating system, as well as the access date and time.

If the User refuses the saving of Cookies to their device or browser, or if the User deletes those saved there, the User is informed that their browsing and experience on the Website may be limited. This may also be the case when GOELIA, via its provider PLANET BOURGOGNE cannot recognise, for the purposes of technical compatibility, the type of browser used by the device, the language and display settings or the country from which the device seems to be connected to the Internet.
If applicable, GOELIA waives all liability for the consequences related to the degraded operation of the Website and the services that may be offered by GOELIA, resulting from the refusal of Cookies by the User making it impossible for GOELIA to save or consult the Cookies necessary for their operation because of the User’s choice.

These tags are placed both in online advertisements that allows Internet users to access the Website, and on the various pages of the latter. This technology allows GOELIA to assess the responses of visitors to the website and the effectiveness of its actions (for example, the number of times a page is opened and the information viewed), as well as the use of this website by the User. The external service provider may collect information on visitors to the website and other websites using these tags, compile reports on the website’s activity for the attention of GOELIA and provide other services relating to the use of the latter and of the Internet.

Social networks improve the usability of the Website and aid its promotion via shares. Video sharing services enrich GOELIA’s Website with video content and increase its visibility.
When the User clicks on these buttons, GOELIA can access personal information that the User will have indicated as public and accessible from their Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and Google Plus profiles. However, GOELIA does not create or uses any database independent of Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus from the personal information that the User may publish there and GOELIA will not process any data falling under their private life via these means.
If the User does not want GOELIA to have access to personal information published on the public space of their profiles or social accounts, the User will need to use the means made available to them by Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google Plus to limit access to their data.
