Once installed, “cookies” let Us recognize You each time you visit the Service, and let You take advantage of all the functionalities of the Service, show that You have visited such and such a page and thereby provide You with an additional service.

4. Your Choices regarding "cookies"
The User rights acknowledged in Clause 6 of the personal data protection policy are also applicable to the use of “cookies”.
You have various different possibilities for managing cookies. Users understand that “cookies” improve browsing comfort on the Service. Any parameters that Users install may modify their browsing on the Service and the conditions of access to certain services which require the use of “cookies”. We cannot be held responsible for the consequences of a less efficient use of the Service due to the impossibility of installing or reading the “cookies” necessary for the correct operation thereof, if Users have rejected or deleted them.
Users can configure their browsing software in such a way that “cookies” are recorded on their Terminal, or on the contrary, rejected, either systematically or depending on the issuer. Users can also configure their browsing software in such a way as to accept or refuse “cookies” as they are suggested on each occasion, before a cookie is registered on their Terminal.
NB, exercising the right of opposition will not stop the display of advertising. Only advertisements which use the Service customization services will cease to be displayed. In other words, Users will no longer be exposed to advertisements adapted to their interests via “cookies” on the Service but will still see advertisements whose content is not necessarily appropriate to their interests, in other words doubtful advertisements.
