When a user visits the Grand Décor website, cookies are likely to be installed on his terminal subject to the choices and options defined in his browser.
Cookies are files stored on the hard drive of the user’s terminal. They perform a variety of functions: they store browsing preferences, collect statistical information, enable certain technical functions, etc.
The main purposes of the cookies installed on the Grand Décor website are :
- Technical cookies: strictly necessary to provide an online communication service expressly requested by the user (session identifier, authentication).
- Audience measurement cookies: used to produce statistics and analyses of the number of visitors to the site and its various areas.
Indeed, when a visitor visits the site, information relating to the connection and behavior of visitors for statistical purposes (number of visitors, pages visited) is collected. This information does not allow direct identification of visitors and the site editor makes no attempt to identify visitors. In particular, no cross-referencing or reconciliation is made between the personal data requested from the user in the forms and the information required for statistics.
At any time, the user has the option of permanently deactivating the above-mentioned cookies, or choosing to set his or her browser to inform him or her and to subject each cookie to his or her acceptance before it is deposited on the computer.
It is important for the user to know that the deactivation of cookies may prevent him/her from taking advantage of some of the services offered by the site and therefore affect the fluidity of his/her navigation, for which Grand Décor cannot be held responsible. Grand Décor therefore recommends filtering cookies according to their purpose, rather than deactivating them as a whole.
