III.    WHAT ARE THE COOKIES USED FOR THAT ACCOMPANY OUR ADVERTISING CONTENT DISPLAYED BY THIRD PARTIES?
 


When you access a site or application containing advertising space displaying one of our advertisements, this advertisement may contain a cookie. This cookie may be stored, subject to your preferences, on your terminal and will allow us to recognise your terminal web browser during the validity period of the cookie in question. The Cookies included in our advertisements on third party sites are used for the purposes described below, subject to your preferences that you can change at any time, based on the parameters of your web browser software used during your visit to our site.

 The Cookies that we install will allow us to do the following, provided you have given your agreement and if your terminal will permit their installation:

 
1.    To count the number of displays and activations of our advertising messages published on the sites or applications of third parties, to identify this content and the sites or applications, to determine the number of users who click on each content;

 
2.    To calculate the amounts due to each participant in the advertising chain (Publicity agency, advertising sales agency, website /advertising support) and to provide statistics;

 
3.    To adapt the presentation of the site or application to which our advertising content leads in accordance with the display preferences of your terminal (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc) during your visits to our Site and according to the hardware and visual display or reading software on your terminal and according to geographical data (latitude and longitude) transmitted by your terminal to us or our partners with your prior consent;

 
4.    To track any subsequent browsing performed on your terminal to sites or applications or to other advertising messages.
 
In accordance with the “Computer and freedom” legislation, you have the right to access this information, which you can exercise by writing to CroisiEurope – Alsace Croisières SA, HQ: 12, rue de la Division Leclerc – F-67000 STRASBOURG.

 If you do not wish us to store cookies on your terminal in order to analyse usage and browsing, you can click on a link to deactivate the setting.

The data collected are not matched with any other processing (client files or browsing of any other sites, for example). The use of a cookie is strictly confined to the production of anonymous statistics.

IV.    WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS IN SEEING PERSONALISED ADVERTISING MESSAGES DISPLAYED ON YOUR BROWSER?

 

 Our aim is to show you only advertising messages that are as relevant as possible to you. To this end, the cookies technology allows us to determine in real time which advertising messages to display on a terminal according to its recent browsing activity on one or more sites or applications.

 Your interest in advertising messages that are displayed on your terminal when you visit a site or application will often determine the amount of advertising resources that the site or application will have to use to exploit its services, and this is often provided to users free of charge. You will undoubtedly prefer to see advertising messages displayed that carry items of interest to you as opposed to advertising that is of no interest at all. The advertisers that want to publicise their advertising messages are also interested in having their offers displayed to users that may be most interested in them.

 

 V.    SI IF YOU SHARE USAGE OF YOUR TERMINAL WITH OTHER PEOPLE
 

 

 If your terminal is used by several different people and when one terminal uses several different web browser software systems, We cannot guarantee with any certainty that the services and advertising messages intended for the terminal will correspond to your own usage of this terminal as opposed to another user of the terminal.

 In such instances, sharing the usage of your terminal with other users and the configuration of the parameters of your browsers as far as cookies are concerned, is entirely your choice and your responsibility.

 


VI.    PERSONAL DATA AND BROWSING INFORMATION
 


We may adapt offers and advertising messages that are destined for you based on the information we have on the browsing history from your terminal on our site or in other sites and services created by third parties on which we have installed cookies.

 If you have provided us with your personal data, in particular your electronic contact details, during your registration or when you access any of our services, we may, in accordance with your permissions and preferences, combine the browsing history from your terminal, processed with the cookies that we install, with your personal data so we can send you some electronic advertising messages and newsletters  or display personalised advertising messages that are specifically targeted to you, which may interest you personally on your terminal. These messages are displayed in the middle of the advertising space where we have installed cookies.

 At any time you can ask us not to send you any more advertising messages or email newsletters personalised according to the browsing history on your terminal by contacting us directly free of charge, or by using the unsubscribe link included in every message that we may send you by email. In such instances, any subsequent emails or advertising messages that you may continue to receive will no longer be based on the browsing history of your terminal, unless you contact us otherwise.

 Moreover, if we were to consider obtaining through a third party (targeted advertising supplier, advertising sales agency, etc) browser information from your terminal that we might combine with any personal data that you have given us, we will always ask for your explicit agreement in advance before proceeding with such a combination and will send you all advertising messages or email newsletters, etc that are produced as a result.
