Online collection of information
As part of the operation of its Website, Christophe Robin may collect additional information about you and your use of the Website, and this policy applies to this online information with the appropriate adjustments.
For the purposes of this policy, online information means information such as the name of the Internet domain (e.g. “xyzcompany.com”) and the Internet protocol address (IP address) used to access the Website, the date and time of the visit, the pages visited, the browser type and version or the operating system used, as well as the previous and subsequent website accessed. General information, such as demographic statistics on users, the number of visitors and the average usage time of the Website are also considered online information.
Christophe Robin collects or obtains online information as part of the operation of its Website. For example, when you choose to visit the Website, web servers may automatically collect online information provided via your browser or stored as “cookies” or other analytical tools or digital markers.
In addition to what is already provided in this policy in regards to personal information, Christophe Robin may use online information to track the use of its Website and improve its use, customize the experience of the users, in particular by proposing customized advertisements and offers, make statistical analyses of all the characteristics and behaviours of users, measure the demographic variables and interests of users with respect to specific services, describe its services to third parties and potential commercial partners and determine how and where Christophe Robin resources can be allocated more effectively. No personal information is disclosed as part of such activities.
This online information is necessary for Christophe Robin to be able to collect the data required to record the number of users, the pages most frequently consulted, the technology used by users, link selection and users’ place of origin.
Cookies are fragments of information sent to users’ computer when a website is viewed. These are traces of the users’ visit that are recorded either temporarily or permanently on their hard drive and may include the date and time of the last visit, among other things. Cookies contribute to improving users’ online experience by recording browsing preferences on a particular website.
Cookies left on your hard drive are harmless and may be read or deleted at any time. You therefore have complete control over them. The information allows Christophe Robin to determine the total number of visitors to each web page and the time spent on it. Every time you go to a website, a cookie is created and left on your computer, therefore allowing Christophe Robin to “recognize” you.
The Website may also contain electronic images that are known as invisible pixels (a “web beacon”), allowing Christophe Robin to count the number of people that have visited certain web pages. Invisible pixels are not used to access personal information. They are more of a technical method for allowing aggregate statistics to be compiled on the use of a website. Invisible pixels only collect limited data, such as cookie numbers, the date and time that a web page has been accessed and a description of the web page that the invisible pixel is found on. The Website can also include invisible pixels placed by partner advertisers or suppliers of web analytics services in order to help Christophe Robin to evaluate the efficiency of certain promotion or Internet sponsorships.
The Website may also use retargeting services to identify users who have visited the Website and reach them with online advertising once they have stopped visiting the Website, in order to transmit advertisements associated with prior use of the Website, without however disclosing any personal information in doing so.
