When you browse this website, cookies and other trackers are placed on your terminal (computer, mobile, tablet). This Policy lays out the cookies and other trackers we use, the reasons why we use them, and the tools at your disposal to manage them.
1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to a user’s device when they visit the AB Tasty website, either as a visitor or as an AB Tasty customer. These small text files are then redirected to the AB Tasty website (from which they originate) on each new visit. Cookies are widely used because they allow websites, such as AB Tasty’s, to recognise a visitor’s devices and thus improve the usability of the website in question.
Cookies are placed by AB Tasty, a simplified joint stock company (société par actions simplifiée) registered in the Paris Registry of Trade and Companies under number 518 685 540, whose registered office is located at 17-19 rue Michel Le Comte, 75003 Paris, France (“AB Tasty” or “we”) or its technical service providers on the website and are used for its own purposes. AB Tasty is consequently responsible for the processing of said cookies as Data Controller.
Other cookies are issued and operated by our partners or third-party companies for purposes determined by such partners and third-party companies. In such cases, the latter are responsible for processing said cookies.
AB Tasty shall be considered as a joint controller whenever it authorises the placement of third-party cookies on the website for purposes defined jointly with its partners or third-party companies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AB Tasty shall not be liable for any further processing by the partner or third-party company involving the processing of personal data, for which said third party shall remain a separate data controller.
The above information allows AB Tasty to administer its website in general, and more specifically, allows it to:
- generate anonymous aggregate data about visitors’ use of the website and the volume of statistical information about them; this statistical data covers the use and performance of the website so that it can be monitored and improved;
- facilitate visitors’ browsing experience on the website, including so as to allow registered users to access secure parts of the website; and
- diagnose technical problems;
- enable visitors to share AB Tasty web pages on social networking platforms.
AB Tasty may receive visitor information from third parties and aggregate this information with existing visitor data in order to analyse its records, improve the online experience of visitors, identify new prospects and personalise information.
