Google Analytics and Hotjar
Please note that, within performance cookies, some cookies may be placed via the Google Analytics tool, a software tool provided by Google which helps us to monitor and analyze website traffic. We have set the parameters of Google Analytics to the strictest possible features, especially in order to anonymize all IP addresses that are collected in this context. That being said, in specific circumstances, there could nevertheless be a possible transfer of some data to the US. Because of this, we have chosen to give you the choice to accept or refuse such cookies: if you refuse these performance cookies they will not be served on your computer. In any case, please note that you may opt-out in general from this tool with your navigator, by downloading an add-on that is available on this page: Opt-Out. For further information regarding Google Analytics and the cookies used in this context, please refer to this page.
Other types of Social Media Local Storage
A local storage is a file created by a website in your device. Cookies are just one type of local storage, but there are others. For instance, some websites use the browser's "session storage" and "local storage" to store data; "session storage" is stored temporarily, but the “local storage” is persistent.
Such technologies can be used by social media (such as Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram) to track your browsing behavior in order to create a profile to show you advertisement targeted to your interests; they can be installed when you accept the social media cookie button or when you visit the respective sites of the social media platform.
The cookie management tool we offer on our website may also block these other types of social media local storage. That being said, you may also erase them by deleting your browser's history.
