We suggest that you regularly check this page in order to have the most up-to-date information about this Technology and how it is used.

Your browser or device may provide you with configuration settings related to this Technology.

About this Technology

Cookies are small files placed on your browser or your device by a website or application you are using. Pixels (also known as clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixel tags) are small blocks of code on a web page or application that allow websites perform operations including reading and placing cookies, and sending information to Bureau Veritas or our partners. This connection can then provide information such as the device's IP address, the date of the pixel's display, the ID number associated with the browser or device, and the type of browser used. Local storage is standard technology that authorises a website or application to store data on a computer, mobile phone, or another user device and extract it from there. For example, this can include local storage, HTML5 caching, or device storage.

Why do we use this Technology?

We use this Technology for a variety of reasons, in particular to ensure that we can offer you the most appropriate content and improve our products and services.

In what circumstances do we read cookies from your computer ordevice?

Web browsers send cookies for a specific web domain (e.g. to the website each time a device having those cookies accesses content coming from that domain.
