Website Cookie Notice

 

Excelya Group SAS and its affiliates (“Excelya”, “we” or “us”) are committed to comply with Directive 2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector (“e-Privacy Directive”), Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, (“General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) and other laws applicable to our corporate group regarding privacy and the protection of personal data.

This cookie notice (referred to as the “Notice”) aims to provide you with information concerning how Excelya uses cookies and similar technologies on its website (referred to as the “Website”).

1. Who is processing your personal data?

Regarding the processing activities covered under this notice, “Excelya Group SAS” determines the purposes and means and acts as a controller. Its contact details and those of its Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) are:

  • Address: 738 rue Yves Kermen, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt, France
  • Telephone: +33 (0)1 46 20 74 50
  • Email: dpo@excelya.com

2. What are cookies and how are they used?

Cookies are small pieces of information, normally consisting of just letters and numbers, which online services (e.g. a website) provide when users visit them. Software (e.g. a web browser) on the user’s device (e.g. a computer, telephone, tablet) can store cookies and send them back to the website next time they visit.

Cookies are used in numerous ways, such as:

  • remembering choices made by a user;
  • supporting users to log in to a website;
  • analysing traffic to a website; or
  • tracking users’ browsing behaviour.

Cookies can be useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and preferences. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Without cookies, or some other similar method, websites would have no way to ‘remember’ anything about visitors, such as previous language choices made or whether they are logged in.

3. What types of cookies are there?

3.1 Depending on who manages them:

  • First-party cookies are set directly by the website the user is visiting, i.e. “excelya.com”. For the Website, these cookies are set and managed by Excelya.
  • Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than the one the user is visiting. This typically occurs when a website incorporates elements from other sites, such as images, social media plugins or advertising. When the browser or other software fetches these elements from the other sites, they can set cookies as well. These cookies are not managed by Excelya, but by the third party that processes data obtained from them.

3.2 Depending on their purpose:

  • Technical cookies: allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or app and the use of the different options or services that exist in it, including those that the website editor uses to allow the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services.

Examples of purposes for which technical cookies might be used: for traffic control and data communication, identify the session, access parts of restricted access, control fraud linked to the security of the service, use security elements during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, text or image loading animation), etc.

  • Preference cookies: are those that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access or use the service with certain choices. If it is the user who chooses these characteristics (for example, the language of a website), these cookies are considered as a service expressly requested by the user, only when exclusively used for the purpose selected.

Examples of purposes for which preference cookies might be used: choosing the language, the number of results to be displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc.

  • Analytical cookies: these are cookies that allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impact of posts or ads.

Examples of purposes for which analytic cookies might be used: The information collected through this type of cookies can be used to measure the activity of the websites, apps or platforms, or in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the data on how users use the service.

  • Targeted advertising cookies: these are cookies that store information on the behaviour of users, obtained through the continuous tracking of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed and to display targeted advertising.

3.3 Depending on the period for which they are stored:

Cookies that expire at the end of a browser session (normally when a user exits their browser) are called ‘session cookies’. Cookies that can be stored for longer are called ‘persistent cookies’.

  • Session cookies allow websites to recognise and link the actions of a user during a “browsing session” (until the user closes its browser).

They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering a setting chosen by a user as they browse around a site. These cookies can also be used for security purposes, such as when a user logs in to an account. These session cookies expire after a session ends, so information would not be stored beyond this period.

  • Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s device across different browsing sessions. They can allow the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or across different websites) to be remembered. The length of time between a cookie being set and expiry can be set by Excelya or third parties, where third party cookies might be used. A user can also delete previously set persistent cookies manually or configure the browser settings to delete cookies at a set interval.

Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site beyond a browsing session or to target advertising.
