For the purpose of creating statistics (e.g. estimating website traffic) and improving your browsing experience (e.g. favouring or developing optimisation of our website for a given browser and type of colour display), and for security reasons (e.g. to be able to determine the origin of spam), GALENIC LABORATORIES may collect data pertaining to you through your environment variables using cookies.

A "cookie" is a small piece of computer software representing a block of numerical data forwarded to your browser by a web server and stored on the hard disk of your computer, your digital tablet or your telephone (hereafter collectively termed "the Equipment").

In terms of this section, the term "cookies" refers to any technology referred to in Section 32-II of the Act dated 6th January 1978, as amended.

Certain "cookies" may contain information of a private nature that will identify you as a physical user and/or identify your Equipment. They will permit the Website to recognize which parts of our activities would be of interest to you and thus to convey to you a content inclined to correspond to your interests. It is stated in this regard that the period for which the information recorded by the "cookies" may be stored by your Equipment may not exceed 13 months.

The Website makes use of "cookies" in order to collect statistics (e.g.: an estimate of the number of Website visits made, the geographical regions in which the Users are located) in order to improve the Website functions and your browsing experience (e.g. to prioritize or optimize our Website for any user and any type of color display) and to ensure browsing security, especially by counteracting fraud and spam mail.

The "cookies" of third parties may also be recorded on your Equipment and are aimed at personalizing and/or improving the content, including advertising, which may be used during your browsing session. As part of the medium, various third-party "cookies" may be stored, especially the following:

Please take note of our policy regarding the management of Flash® "cookies" on the website of the software publishing company.

• Target "cookies" defined by a third party such as an advertiser may be used to disseminate advertisements that are better targeted to you or your interests. For example, you may be presented with advertisements for our products when you visit other websites. They will also serve to limit the number of times an advertisement is shown and help to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. These "cookies" also trace your visits to various websites.

Moreover, we may place our own "cookies" onto media belonging to third parties who are our partners and who advertise our brands and/or our products. Such "cookies" are mainly intended to present you with content adapted to your interests and to keep a record of visits to our content (including advertisements).
