IV. USE OF COOKIES

On this site, we use cookies (a cookie is a little file sent by our server which is recorded on to your computer’s hard drive. It keeps track of the site you visit and contains a certain number of details about your visit). Our cookies are primarily designed to help the site to run (technical session cookies). We also use them  (1) for functional purposes, (2) for marketing purposes, and (3) to draw up statistics.

You can use the browser settings on your computer to remove cookies which are already in place and refuse to allow new cookies to be installed. The actual method will differ from one browser to another; if necessary, consult the help function on your browser. In addition, you can refuse most cookies installed when you use AGC websites, both individually and collectively, by going tohttp://www.youronlinechoices.eu/. This will also let you see which of the named cookies are active on your browser.

Refusing and/or removing cookies will mean that you will not always be able to make use of all the possibilities offered by a website. In addition, refusing/removing cookies only has consequences for the computer and browser on which you carry out that action. If you use more than one computer and/or browser, you need to repeat the above action(s) as often as necessary.

Technology is evolving. Our company might therefore have to carry out some processing operations which are not yet covered in this policy.
