When browsing the Site, certain items of information relating to your visit may be recorded in “cookies”, which are files installed on your device (computer, tablet, mobile phone or any other device used for internet browsing).
These cookies are issued by Chomarat so as to facilitate your navigation of the Site, measure visitor numbers, and enable you to interact with the social network modules (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) on the Site.
This article is intended to help you understand what a cookie is and the purpose it serves, as well as how to configure your cookie settings.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that, via your browser software, is deposited in a dedicated space on the hard drive of your device, when you visit a website or view an advertisement. It contains various data, including the name of the server that deposited it (i.e. the server of the site that you are browsing), a unique numeric identifier and, in some cases, the expiry date of the cookie.
Cookies enable the issuer to recognise the user’s device and to collect information relating to the user’s navigation of websites.
Cookies issued by the Site
Cookies essential for the operation of the Site: These serve to store information entered on forms, to manage and secure access to reserved areas (registration or access to your account, requested services, contents of a shopping basket, etc.).
Functional cookies: These serve to adapt the presentation of the Site according to the display preferences of your device (language used, display resolution, etc.) and thus to personalise your access to the Site.
Analytical cookies (or visitor measurement cookies): These collect anonymous Site traffic data in order to compile statistics and visitor measurement data (number of visits and pages viewed, etc.) and to measure the use of elements comprising the current Site (sections and pages viewed, etc.), enabling Chomarat to monitor and improve the quality of its services. To this end, the Site makes use, in particular, of Google Analytics, a website analysis service provided by Google Inc. and enabling us to analyse users’ visits to our Site.
Social cookies: These enable you to interact with the social network modules (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) on the Site.
Management of cookies
You can control and manage the installation of cookies on your device by configuring your browser settings.
It is possible to configure your browser to accept or reject all cookies, either systematically or depending on their issuer. You can also choose to be automatically informed when a cookie is deposited on your device.
Lastly, for greater control over the management of cookies, you can configure your browser software so that it asks you on a case-by-case basis to accept or reject cookies, before they can be deposited on your hard drive by the server of the website that you are visiting.
Thus, it is advisable to configure your browser settings to suit your preferences.
In order to manage cookies in accordance with your requirements, please configure your browser settings in such a way as to take into account the purpose of cookies. You will find below more detailed information on how to configure these settings for the most commonly used browsers:
