2. WHAT IS A “COOKIE”?
A cookie is a small file for the storage and recovery of information, usually made up of alphanumeric characters (see letters and numbers), placed by a web server on the User's computer or electronic device to send status information to said browser and obtain the same information back from the browser. For example, status information may be a session ID, language, expiry date, field of response, etc.
Cookies usually allow to obtain certain information about the user's browsing habits, his/her computer or his/her device, in order to improve the content and service offered by the website in question, to know the traffic of the said website and to provide Internet users with personalised services.

• HTTP cookies;
• but also the use of other techniques:
o local shared objects sometimes called “Flash cookies”;
o the local storage implemented within HTML 5;

3. TYPE OF COOKIES
There are two main categories of cookies, subject to different legal regimes.
a) Strictly necessary cookies not subject to the User's consent
Strictly necessary cookies are solely intended to (i) enable or facilitate electronic communication on, from or to the Website or (ii) to enable the provision of an online communication service at the express request of the Website User.

In fact, if You disable these cookies for example using the features offered by Your browser, You may not be able to access the Website, and/or to correctly receive the content and information available on the Website and/or You may not be able to benefit from all the features of the Website.
These cookies are exempt from the need for BETC to request Your consent to their installation. BETC may thus use those cookies which are essential to browse the Website and/or strictly necessary for the provision of certain services without seeking Your prior consent.
b) Other cookies subject in principle to the consent of the User
Statistical cookies: these cookies allow to establish statistics and traffic and use volumes of the various elements of our website and application (sections and content visited, path, visit times), allowing us to improve the interest and user-friendliness of Our services.

When Your prior consent is required (that is, for all cookies other than those strictly necessary), the validity period for consent to the placement of cookies is 6 months. At the end of this period, We will seek your consent to (or refusal of) the installation of such cookies again.
Information collected through cookies is kept by BETC for a maximum period of 25 months, in accordance with the applicable regulations.

b) Alternative – Cookie management setting via the browsers
Each web browser offers different setting methods to manage cookies.
• For more information on the Google Chrome browser: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=fr&hlrm=en;
• For more information on the Firefox browser: https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/autoriser-bloquer-cookies-preferences-sites?redirectlocale=fr&redirectslug=activer-desactiver-cookies-preferences and https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/desactiver-cookies-tiers;
• For more information on the Internet Explorer browser: https://support.microsoft.com/fr-fr/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies;
• For more information on the Safari browser: https://www.apple.com/legal/privacy/fr-ww/cookies/ and https://www.apple.com/legal/privacy/fr-ww/;

• For Opera™: https://help.opera.com/en/latest/security-and-privacy/ and https://help.opera.com/en/latest/web-preferences/#cookies.
We nevertheless draw your attention to the fact that in the current state of the art, browsers:
• do not all allow to distinguish cookies according to their purposes (the consequence of which is that you often have to “accept all” or “refuse all” when setting your choices);
• do not all allow the User to express a valid consent (the consequence of which is that despite the fact that you may have consented to cookies via your browser, we will ask for your specific consent again under the aforementioned terms and conditions prior to any installation / reading by us of cookies subject to your consent);
• do not all allow to express a choice on technologies other than “cookies for the purpose of tracking the browsing” in the strict sense of the term. It is also possible that certain cookies, trackers or other similar technologies may not be blocked in principle (e.g.: device fingerprinting) and can still be installed and/or activated despite your refusal expressed as part of the setting of your browser.
We therefore recommend that you favour the use of the module in order to express your cookie choices on the Website.
Finally, if you have deactivated one or more cookies, we may still use the information collected by these cookies before their deactivation. However, we will cease to collect data through the refused cookie.
