A cookie allows your computer to store various technical data allowing the general control of public access to a site (number of visits, duration of the visit, connection to other sites, etc.) or the customisation of the displayed pages for your next interactions with the same site (your account, the most visited pages,etc.)

    Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)

    A PIA is a detailed study to establish the risk to privacy that a personal data processing could have on the privacy of the data subject should an incident occur.

    Purpose of processing

    The purpose of processing is the reason why the data is collected.

    Plugins

    A plugin or plug-in is a computer program designed to add functionality to other software (called host software). For example, the buttons of social networks. Equivalent terms; "Plug-in", "Add in", "Add on".

    Data subject

    Any natural person subject to processing of personal data.

    Controller

    The controller is the natural person or legal person on whose behalf the treatment is carried out. It determines alone or jointly the purposes of the treatment.

    The processor is any natural or legal person, public authority, service or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller. For example, a web host or an online service provider.

    Tag

    Tag or HTML tags are the basic elements of the HTML coding of a web page. They are invisible to the user (except by activating the display of the source code). They are interpreted by the browser for the composition of the page. They allow the formatting and structuring of content and some are specifically taken into account by the algorithms of search engines for setting the score of the page on a query and the return of results.

    Processing

    Any transaction or set of transactions involving personal data, whether or not performed using automated processes, including the collection, recording, organisation, retention, adaptation, modification extraction, consultation, use, communication by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or interconnection, and limitation, erasure or destruction.
