Cookies charter



What is a cookie ?

A cookie is a small computer file or “tracer” collected as you browse (e.g. accessing emails, a website or mobile app) that is then deposited on your device, regardless of model or type (e.g. PC, smart phone, tablet, or video game console).

These files may contain different information such as a session identifier, language or browser history etc. They are mainly for offering personalised content and adverts and improving your online experience.

Subject to your preferences, cookies are collected and stored for a period of 13 months from collection. You can still clear them at any time.


What types of cookies are used when you visit this website?

When you visit this website, different types of trackers are used. These cookies can be set up by Grévin et Compagnie or administered by partners (e.g.: publishers of audience measurement solutions, or social networks). The list of our partners is accessible from the link “See our partners” in our cookie management tool (available from the “Cookies” link in the Footer at the bottom of this website).


Some cookies are strictly necessary for your navigation on the site and do not require your consent. These cookies are collected directly by us and allow:

- To manage and secure your authentication on the website;
- To access certain online services, such as validation of the shopping cart;
- To measure certain site performances in order to detect navigation problems;
- To retain your configuration choices and consent regarding the collection of non-obligatory cookies.


Collecting and reading other cookies requires your consent. These cookies are as follows:


- Functional cookies allowing:

           ° To adapt the website to the display preferences of your terminal (language, currency, display resolution, operating system used, configuration and configuration of the display of site pages depending on the terminal that you are using and its location);

           ° To memorize certain information that you enter on the website in order to facilitate and personalize your next navigations (for example, the display of your first and last name if you have a user account and you are identified);


- Audience and performance tracking cookies, allowing us to understand your interactions with the website (most visited pages, paths, content consulted, applications used, frequency of consultation, reaction to the content) as well as processing the information collected on third-party sites. They allow us to produce statistics, improve the interest and ergonomics of the website;


- Advertising cookies allowing:
           ° To offer you subsequently when browsing the internet relevant targeted content likely to interest you (best offers, similar content) based on your interests, your browsing, your preferences; and in particular to offer you offers on our products and services adapted to your needs;
           ° To limit the number of appearances of advertising advertisements. If you refuse, the advertisements will continue to be displayed but they will no longer be adapted to your interests.


- Affiliation cookies, allowing you to identify the original third-party website that redirected you to this website.


- Connection cookies, allowing us to access your information located on third-party accounts if you wish to register quickly using your other accounts (e.g.: Facebook, Google, Apple).


- Social network cookies, to give you the possibility of sharing or liking information from our site, and conversely for the social networks concerned to follow your navigation on our site. We have no control over these cookies and invite you to consult their privacy policies (see information below).



How do I accept, refuse or clear tracers ?

You are asked to accept the collection and use of cookies when you first visit our website, then every 6 months after that. For this purpose, a central window displays on our website, requesting you to accept the collection of cookies and set your preferences (if you wish to modify them or refuse all or some of these cookies).


We would inform you that refusal may compromise your experience of our website. We therefore decline all responsibility for any consequences of such a refusal, including the absence of any offering of content suited to your browsing habits or preferences.

Nevertheless, whatever you decide, you may do the following at any time:

- Modify your settings in our cookie management tool (accessible from the clickable link "Manage my cookie preferences" in the footer at the bottom of this website "), exclusively for cookies collected via our site;

- And/or clear tracers from your device via your browser, these preferences applying to all of your online browsing.


Helpful information about browser cookie settings:

Most browsers are set to accept the use of all cookies and tracers by default. You may change the settings in order to select tracers that you agree to use, or refuse tracers. You need to configure the settings on each of your devices(PC, tablet, smart phone, etc.).


Tracer setting and clearance procedures vary between browsers. The procedure is described in your browser help menu. These are the tracer setting procedures for the most common browsers:


We would remind you that if you decide to clear all cookies from your device via your browser, we will no longer hold information about your setting preferences and will have to ask you to set your preferences again the next time you visit our website. This also applies when you use a new browser or device. 

The settings are managed at the sole responsibility of the browsers, and we cannot guarantee that they will function properly.


Further information about settings according to purpose:

Browser settings are often inadequate. You can refine your settings further if you wish by targeting the purpose of the cookie:

- For audience and performance measuring: audience measuring and performance cookies are deposited by third-party companies, but they help us to improve our website and make it user-friendly.


This link takes you to a page providing you with more information about these solutions and a system for refusing the audience monitoring tracers


We would remind you, however, that clearing these cookies deprives us of important statistical information necessary for improving our website and personalising them according to your profile and interests


- For advertising: our website has no advertising spaces. This means that information collected is essentially used to offer you suitable adverts on third-party sites visited by you, based on information collected via the audience measuring tools listed previously (the tools used are the same for both purposes). Alongside this, a number of advertising professional platforms give you the option of refusing or accepting cookies used by member companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of adverts, and only prevent the installation of cookies for adapting adverts to your areas of interest. For example, you can go to the Your Online Choices site and prohibit the installation of these cookies on your device. This site is provided by digital advertising professionals belonging to the EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance) and is managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France. However, we cannot guarantee that this tool will be totally effective or worf smoothly, as it dependent on the participation of advertising stakeholders in the system.


- For social networks: the website has buttons to redirect you to our social network pages. If you have a account with thses social networks, they can also follow your browsing activity on our site. 


To find out more about how the networks use the tracers and how you can configure your account, please click on the following links1:


- We might also offer you connection services proposed by social networks and certain Internet players (e.g. Facebook connect, Google connect and Apple Connect) to facilitate registration and purchasing. The use of this functionality is at your discretion and, if you already use these services, enables you to register on our site without having to re-enter your personal information, by giving us permission to access this information. For further information about information-sharing and using these tools, please click on the following links:

Finally, we would like to inform you that a number of different programmes are available to add to your browser, enabling you to block and manage all types of tracer, including Abine or Ghostery. .

For further information about cookie management and collection, you can also go to the CNIL – Commission Nationale de l’Iinformatique et des Libertés website and click on “Cookies: tools for managing them”.
