  • do not all allow you to choose technologies other than “cookies for tracking purposes” in the strict sense of the term. It is therefore possible that certain cookies, tracers or other similar technologies are not blocked on principle (e.g. device fingerprinting) and may still be installed and/or activated despite your refusal expressed in the settings of your browser .

However, if you decide to prohibit cookies, we cannot be held responsible for any degradation in the functioning of the Website as a result of the settings you have chosen.
