When you visit the VisualPublinet website, cookies, provided that you have accepted them, record information that is stored in the memory of your hard drive. We use this information to:
– Generate web analytics statistics.
– Adapt the presentation of the contents of the website to the display preferences of your device (language, screen resolution, operating system, etc.) when you visit the website.
– Adapt the advertising content displayed on the terminal equipment from which you connect to the website.
– To store information relating to any forms completed by the user on our website.
2. Cookies issued by third parties
Cookies may be issued on our website by third parties, as a result of third party applications integrated into our website through third party content in our advertising spaces or through external advertising services that exploit our advertising spaces. These cookies are used to:
– To count the total number of advertisements displayed in our advertising spaces, identify those advertisements, the number of users who clicked on each advertisement etc. for statistical purposes;

3. Accept / reject cookies
You can choose at any time to accept or reject the installation of cookies on your terminal by configuring your browser settings.
3.1 I accept cookies
Whether or not a cookie is installed on a user’s terminal equipment is essentially dependent on the terminal’s willingness to accept it, a decision that can be expressed and modified at any time and free of charge through the options offered by the internet browser installed on the user’s terminal equipment.
If the user of the terminal equipment has accepted the acceptance of cookies on his browser, the cookies of the Internet pages he has visited are temporarily stored in a dedicated space on the user’s terminal equipment. These cookies can only be read by the sender of the cookie.
What is the advantage of accepting cookies?
When you visit the VisualPublinet website, these cookies collect information that is stored on your terminal. We use this information to offer you products based on the items you have selected during your previous visits to our site, making it easier for you to browse our site.
3.2 I reject cookies
If you reject the installation of cookies on your user terminal or, if you delete those that have been registered in other previous accesses, you should bear in mind that you will not be able to benefit from a series of utilities that are necessary to navigate in some areas of our website. Thus, it will not be possible to recognise, for example, the default language of the terminal equipment, the type of browser installed on the user’s terminal equipment in order to adapt the display of the web page, the country from which the device is connected to the web page, etc.
In this case of refusal to install cookies or deletion of cookies by the user, VISUALPUBLINET assumes no responsibility for the consequences related to the degraded functioning of the services offered by the website, due to the impossibility of registering or viewing the cookies necessary for the perfect functioning of the website.
