Worldline takes users’ privacy very seriously and is committed to complying with privacy laws and regulations on privacy in electronic communications. For this purpose, we have developed the following notice which is intended to give you the key information you need to manage the cookies we collect while you visit our website.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are small files which are downloaded onto a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies can be accessed by the server and allow a website to recognize users and to understand users’ navigation on different websites.
On the same principle and for the same purpose, other equivalent tracking technology may also be used such as html5 local storage. In the rest of this notice, the term “cookie” will cover all local tracking technology.
In practice, the website you visit sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server.
