Different types of cookies used
Spreds uses the following cookies:
Certain technical and purely functional cookies are essential to any site navigation. These cookies do not contain any data other than a username, which is required for your Internet browsing. They are designed, for example, to help you navigate the site and return to the previous pages. These cookies are only stored during your session on the site.
Certain site pages require you to log on as a member and will generate specific cookies (including storing a username during registration on the site as a member). These cookies are retained for a 2 month period.
Certain cookies are used to store the navigation language on the site and personalize the page, by taking into account previous consultations. The primary purpose of these cookies is to contribute to the ease of the site’s navigation. They can also contain useful information such as a member’s current subscriptions, a list of the documents stored in a personal workspace, etc. These cookies are preserved to be supplemented or refreshed on subsequent visits. The browser settings allow you to control cookies, and their removal does not prevent the proper use of the site.
Statistical or analytical cookies
These cookies collect information on the site usage (pages visited, average duration of consultations, …). The statistical analysis is strictly anonymous and enables us to identify the most and least visited pages and get to know about the overall site usage habits. This is also the means of detecting site navigational difficulties and assessing the advertising effectiveness of the companies displayed on the site. For some analyses, we use Google Analytics which can be disabled in different ways depending on the browsers used (modules and third-party extensions, site blocking google-analytics.com/*). The data collected by the site in this way is in principle aggregated and processed anonymously. These cookies are retained for a maximum period of 2 years.
