Acceptance or refusal of the use of tracers has no effect on your navigation on the Website, with the exception of cookies and tracers that are essential for the operation of the Website or for an online communication service which you have requested.


The Website also uses tracers to ensure access and important features of the Website (Essential cookies).

Unless you have provided a prior consent, tracers will not be deposited if:
