Cookie Usage Policy on the DisMed Website
In order to properly operate the DisMed website, we sometimes use small data files called “cookies” on your computer. Almost all sites do this.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that a site stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site.
It allows the site to remember your actions and preferences (for example, your connection, your language, screen size, display preferences in general and in particular, etc …) for a defined period of time.
Thus, if you visit the site, you can come back later and need to confirm your acceptance or refusal of cookies because this time is up. The cookie stored on your machine will indicate to the site that you have accepted or refused cookies, which will avoid asking the question on every page visited.
What else do we use for cookies?
The cookies on this site allow us several things:
- know when you sent a form to ask us a question if the sending process went well in order to show you the message “your message has been sent!”,
- keep between the pages you visit your viewing preferences (font size, mobile view or computer display, etc …)
- count the number of different visitors on each page so that we can estimate the information that most interests our visitors,
- allow you to “go back” when you have a link “back” in a page so that you find yourself on the “good” page (the page previously consulted).
The cookies on this site are separated in different families to allow you to give your choices in a very fine way:
- Cookies Needed: are the cookies necessary for the minimum functioning of the site. You can not disable these cookies.
- Cookies Preferences: are cookies that allow you to remember your browsing choices (list filtering, detection of your device to allow us to adapt the site to your screen, etc.)
- Third-Party Cookies: Third-party cookies that allow the operation of external services such as Google. They correspond to GoogleMap (to allow Google to display the maps on the site), Google ReCaptcha to help protect forms against spammers. By disabling these cookies, the majority of interactive content will stop working on the site.
- Marketing Cookies (Third Party): Even if we do not use marketing cookies services, some sites will track you from the outside to find out what you like to see on the Internet. By disabling these cookies, you avoid being “tracked” by advertisers and advertisers.
Third Party Cookies
We use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (Google) to protect form entries on your site (“Antispam” checkbox). This service is used to differentiate entries made by a human being from automated abuse. This involves sending the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service.
For this purpose, your data will be communicated to Google and used by their services. However, your IP address will be shortened in advance by Google in the Member States of the European Union – or in other states that are part of the agreement on the European Economic Area – and will thus be anonymous.
In exceptional cases, your complete IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened thereafter.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service.
The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA by your browser will not be merged with other Google data.
By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of your data by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
In order to display the maps for each visitor, we use the GoogleMap service that provides the interactive map engine used on this site to provide the location of our practitioners, only. For this, Google will use a cookie to know how many times a card was called on the site and by whom (via an anonymous ip address does not contain your name).
When viewing from Youtube, Google anonymously collects your IP address to calculate the number of views of the video. If you choose to disable them (“Statistics” and “Marketing” cookies), you will no longer be able to view the shared videos.
Google in general
Even if your ip address is anonymous, it is possible for Google to cross-check all navigation information as you browse this site and elsewhere: it is then possible from the totality of the collected information to link for the same IP address the list of sites, pages, maps, videos, etc. that you consult. The decision to block or not cookies is at your level but without them, it is clear that the features offered by this site can not be complete.
Example of a page where you will have a cookie stored on your machine:
- The contact form of the site and the form to join us,
- When you arrive on the site and the site detects if you come here for the first time and if he must then display the banner asking for your acceptance and then to memorize this choice not to ask you again on every page
- When we embed certain videos on the site in articles (video that then collects the number of postings anonymously)
- When you download a PDF document from the site to your computer as it is possible in your email, or any document available in your “Messaging” on the site.
The activation of cookies is therefore absolutely not mandatory but allows you to display the right information on the right pages. You have the option to block or delete these cookies but in this case, the site may seem “dysfunctional”.
Some cookies like Google’s cookies are used by third-party companies such as advertisers and advertisers who will track down your public IP address to try to find out what interests you and offer you targeted advertising. If you block Google cookies (Analytics, Statistics), you will not be “tracked” on this site but you may not notice a normal operation of the site (for Google services for example) as on the page of ” Contact “of the site.
The information stored in cookies is never used to identify you personally but identify the computer that made the request.
Cookies are therefore never used other than what is given in the list above.
How to control cookies on your computer
If you wish to carry out this operation, you will have to make the adjustment manually directly in your browser keeping in mind that this will disturb your visits to the different sites that you will consult and whatever the site consulted (you then block cookies for global navigation on your machine).
