Article 2 – Data collected on the Site

The Data collected and subsequently processed by the Site is the data you voluntarily provided when filling in the various forms on the Site. For specific content operations, you may be required to provide Data about yourself to third party partners through their own services, particularly when you make payments.
We will not have access to this data, as its collection and processing is governed by the conditions specific to these parties. We recommend that you consult their terms and conditions before providing your Data in this context.

Your IP address (identification number assigned to your computer on the Internet) is collected automatically. You are informed that the Service is likely to install an automatic tracking process (cookie), which you can prevent by changing your internet browser settings, as explained in the Terms of Use of this Site.

Generally speaking, you can visit our site without providing any personal information about yourself.
In any case, you are under no obligation to provide this information. Nevertheless, if you refuse, you may not be able to benefit from certain information or services.
