Forms and interactivity

Your personal information is collected through forms, namely:

We collect information from users who subscribe to our mailing list (name, first name, email address).

We use the information collected for the following purposes:

  • Information/promotional offers
  • Statistics

This data is never sold to third parties and subscribers can unsubscribe at any time.


When you leave a comment on our website, not only the data entered in the comment form, but also your IP address and your browser’s user-agent are collected to help us detect unwanted comments.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: After validating your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.

Visitors’ comments can be verified using an automated service for detecting unwanted comments.


If you are a registered user and you upload images to the website, we advise you to avoid uploading images containing EXIF GPS coordinate data. Visitors to your website can download and extract location data from these images.


If you leave a comment on our site, you will be asked to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is only for your convenience so that you do not have to enter this information if you leave another comment later. These cookies expire after one year.

If you have an account and log on to this site, a temporary cookie will be created to determine if your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain any personal data and will be deleted automatically when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set a number of cookies to save your login information and screen preferences. The lifetime of a login cookie is two days, and the lifetime of a screen option cookie is one year. If you check “Remember me”, your cookie will be stored for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the cookie will be deleted.

By editing or posting an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data. It simply indicates the identifier of the article you have just modified. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other sites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, etc.). The content embedded from other sites behaves in the same way as if the visitor were visiting that other site.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking tools, and track your interactions with such embedded content if you have an account logged into their website.

Automated marketing and/or profiling operations carried out using personal data

If you visit certain pages of this website, it is possible that your browser will save a cookie for up to one year so that we can deliver relevant advertising via the Google AdWords network.

Statistics and audience measurement

This site collects anonymous audience data to measure the reach of the website.

How long we can store your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This makes it possible to automatically recognize and approve subsequent comments instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.

For users who register on our site (only if possible), we also store the personal data indicated in their profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except for their user name). The site managers can also view and modify this information. Also, passwords stored in the database are encrypted.

Data submitted through forms, unless otherwise specified, are kept indefinitely on our internal servers and/or in a CRM. Access to our physical servers is restricted only to individuals that have express authorization to access them.

Right of access, right of opposition and withdrawal

We undertake to recognize a right of access and rectification to the persons concerned and wishing to consult, modify or even delete information concerning them.

Please note that subscribers to our mailing list can unsubscribe at any time.

We are thus committed to offering you a right of opposition and withdrawal regarding your personal information. The right of opposition is the possibility offered to Internet users to refuse that their personal information be used for certain purposes mentioned at the time of collection (see the section “Collection of personal information”).
