Tracker and cookie management policy

When you visit the Système d'Information et Management (SIM) website, information may be collected and stored by cookies on your browser, phone or tablet. This page describes the principle and details the cookies likely to be deployed by the SIM website.

What is a cookie ?

A cookie is a small file containing small amounts of information (notably an identifier, a session, a choice of language and other preferences). A cookie is likely to be stored temporarily on the hard disk of your terminal when you visit a website using your browser, subject to your choices for cookies not required for site operation. Cookies are managed by your web browser, and users can read them by right-clicking on the web page and "Inspect code".

Only the issuer of a cookie can modify the information it contains. A cookie can be either a session cookie or a permanent (or persistent) cookie.

A session cookie only persists during the browsing session; it is deleted when the browser is closed. A permanent cookie is installed for a specified duration. This type of cookie remains on the device until it expires or is deleted from the computer via browser settings or extensions.

The cookie does not personally identify you, but only the browser of your device. Some cookies require your prior consent before being installed on your device.

What are cookies used for ?

The different types of cookies used by SIM

Mandatory cookies :

These are cookies exclusively deposited by the publisher of the site. They are essential for browsing the site. These cookies cannot be disabled or configured, as doing so may prevent access to the site and/or alter its display. They allow you to use the main features of the site and secure your connection. Therefore, the deposit of these cookies does not require your prior consent. Their lifespan generally does not exceed the session duration.

Functional cookies :

These cookies are necessary for the functioning of the website. The deposit of these cookies does not require your prior consent. These cookies allow :

  • Establishment of anonymous statistics on the frequency and use of various elements of the site to enable its publisher to administer and improve the site.
  • Adaptation of the site's presentation to the display preferences of your device (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) during your visits to the site, according to the hardware and software for viewing or reading that your device contains.

How to manage cookies deposited by the SIM website ?

Cookies whose exclusive purpose is not to allow or facilitate electronic communication or which are not strictly necessary for the provision of an online communication service at the express request of the user require the prior consent of the user.

Trackers whose purpose is limited to measuring the anonymous audience of the site or application, to meet various needs necessary for the operation and routine administration of a website, are not subject to consent.

To manage cookies deposited by the SIM site, you have several options that complement each other :

  • Control cookies using your browser settings. Most of these trackers can be disabled by configuring your browser to only accept trackers from visited sites (rejecting "third-party sites", checking the "Do not track me" box on most browsers) in the preferences of your browsing software.

How to configure browsers ?

To manage cookies according to your wishes, we invite you to configure your browser taking into account the purpose of the cookies:

  • The internet browser can be configured to warn you before a cookie is installed.
  • The browser can also be configured to refuse any type of cookies or only third-party cookies.
  • Any cookie already installed on the computer can be deleted.
  • Disable/Delete Cookies on your browser
