Cookie policy

When you consult our website, cookies are installed on your computer, your mobile or your tablet.

Digit'Eaux uses these cookies for various and varied reasons. A distinction should be made between two main cookie categories: functional cookies on the one hand and what we call ‘comfort cookies’ on the other. Functional cookies meet technical requirements, in particular to establish a correct, secure connection to the website. Comfort cookies, on the other hand, are designed to record your preferences, either for statistical purposes or to facilitate, speed up and optimise your browsing, or to show you a range of goods and/or services. In this context, cookies are intended to ensure you high-quality usage and service when you visit our websites and thus optimise the use made of them.

This cookie policy is intended to inform you about the characteristics and purposes of the cookies that we use.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file sent by the Digit'Eaux server to the hard disk of your computer (or any mobile device which can be used to browse the internet, such as a smartphone or a tablet). Cookies cannot be used to identify you directly. They do however, above all, make it possible to identify your browsing device.

Which cookies does this website use?

Functional cookies and first-party session cookies

Thanks to these cookies, you do not have to enter certain information every time you log into the website.

Comfort cookies

These cookies provided by Google (Privacy policy) are installed for statistical purposes and remember the way in which the user visits the website in order to improve our services (your IP remains anonymous).

Cookie types

As well as being divided into two categories of cookies according to their legal status (functional cookies/comfort cookies), cookies can also be subdivided into categories according to their origin, their function and their lifespan.

  • First-party cookies: these are cookies that are installed by Digit'Eaux when you visit its websites.
  • Third-party cookies: these are cookies that are installed by third parties when you visit a Digit'Eaux website (e.g.: cookies installed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).
  • Functional cookies: these cookies ensure that the website operates correctly (e.g.: login, registration, language preferences cookies). Functional cookies are first-party cookies.
  • Comfort cookies: these are installed on the website for statistical, social and commercial purposes. Comfort cookies are designed mainly to make your browsing more comfortable, more convenient and more user friendly. They can also identify your centres of interest in order, for example, to personalise the advertisements sent to you outside our website.
    • The cookies installed for statistical purposes can be used to check the website pages visited and to locate the computer, etc. (e.g.: Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, etc.)
    • Cookies installed for social purposes allow web users to share the content of the website visited on the social networks (e.g.: Twitter, Facebook, etc.).
    • Comfort cookies may be first-party or third-party cookies.
  • Persistent cookies: these remain on your hard disk for a long, pre-determined period or until you delete them. They are activated each time you visit the website that installed this cookie (e.g.: cookies installed by social media). Persistent cookies are usually comfort cookies.
  • Session cookies: these make browsing easier for web users during a session. A browsing session begins when the web user opens the browser screen and ends when they close this browser screen. Session cookies are temporary. As soon as you close your browser, all session cookies are deleted. Session cookies are usually functional.

Example: The cookies installed by Google Analytics are considered to be non-functional, third-party and persistent.
