WHAT IS A COOKIE? ?

Technal uses cookies on its websites. It is a fingerprint allowing us to learn a little more about you and how you use our Web sites.

WHAT DO COOKIES DO?

Cookies help us to improve our content and your site navigation. They are stored locally on your computer or mobile device.

WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?

There are two types of cookies on Technal sites: session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies are temporarily on your computer, disappearing as soon as you leave the site. A permanent cookie remains for a longer period, i.e. until you manually delete it (the length of time the cookie on your machine depends on its life and your browser settings).

The pages you visit may also collect information using "pixel tags" (also called "clear gifs"), shared with third parties which directly support our promotional activities and the development of our sites. For example, access statistics of Technal sites by visitors may be shared with our external partners to better target campaigns to our websites. This information, however, does not identify you individually, although it may be linked to your personal data.
