3.2. Cookie management

This website uses cookies. The cookies used on this site are strictly limited to technical use and optionally for audience measurement purposes.

A cookie is a small file distributed with the pages of a website and stored by the browser on the hard drive of your computer, tablet or phone.

It should be noted that behind the term “cookies”, any other technical tracing process, such as “scripts” in general, is also considered. A script is a piece of programming code used to operate a website interactively. Finally, “web beacons”, “spy pixels”, or “social media cookies” are also cookies.

Cookies make it possible to personalise the content and offer features necessary for the proper functioning of a website, such as checking a shopping cart or memorising a choice of language, for example.

STG requires its subcontractors to comply with data protection legislation and to provide sufficient guarantees for the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures so that the processing meets the requirements of applicable data protection legislation and guarantees the protection of your rights.

We do not sell or disclose the data we collect about you to third parties in any way.

Under certain circumstances, our website and applications will provide you with plugins from various social networks. If you choose to interact with a social networking site such as Facebook or Twitter, your activity on our site or via our applications will also be accessible on that social network. Please read the privacy policies of these social networks for detailed information on the collection and transfer of personal information, your rights, and how you can obtain satisfactory settings with regard to privacy.

8. Information about children

As a general rule, we do not intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we discover that we have inadvertently collected information from children under 13 years old, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible unless we are required to retain it by applicable law.

When we know that a child is over 13 years old but is considered a minor under applicable law, we will obtain parental/guardian permission before using that child’s personal information.

9. Links to other websites and services

Our sites may contain links to third-party sites, and some of our services provide you access to third-party services (such as social media).

We do not control how third-party sites and services process your personal information. We do not audit third-party sites and services and are not responsible for such third-party sites and services or their privacy practices. Please read the privacy statements of the third-party sites or services you access from our sites or services.

10. Safety

We have developed security rules adapted technically and organisationally to avoid destruction, loss, falsification, modification, unauthorised access, accidental communication to third parties, as well as any other unauthorised processing of data.

STG’s liability will be limited to direct damages, excluding any indirect damages. STG cannot ever be liable for damages deemed indirect, such as, without this list being exhaustive, loss of data, financial or commercial damage, loss of profits, an increase of overhead costs, or disruption of planning.

In addition, STG cannot be held liable for any damage resulting from improper manipulation by third parties on the data (data theft, viruses, phishing or other computer offences).
