COOKIES, PIXELS AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

In order to display and organize the content and services of this website, we use cookies, tracking pixels (or "pixels"), devices or other IDs, and local storage devices (collectively, "Technologies").

Some features of this site that may be of interest to you based on your activity within and outside of our services make use of these technologies. To learn how you can control these, please see the "Privacy Options" section below.

We encourage you to visit this page regularly to stay informed about these technologies and their use.

Your browser or terminal device probably already provides you with setting options for these technologies. To learn more about the availability, role and operation of these settings, check the help options of your browser or device and refer to the "Privacy Options" section further down this page. Some of these settings may affect your use of the features we offer on this website. In addition, the settings in one browser or device will generally only apply to that one browser or device.

Please note that if you delete a cookie, or if you do not agree to the use of the cookie on your device, you may not be able to use some features of this website.

ABOUT THESE TECHNOLOGIES

Cookies are small files that are placed on your browser or device by a website or application that you visit. Pixels (also known as clear GIFs, Web beacons, or pixel tags) are small blocks of code on a webpage or application. They allow the website to place and read cookies, and to send information to Bureau Veritas or our partners. This allows information such as the IP address of the device, the date the pixel is stored, the ID number of the browser or device, and the browser type to be associated with the cookie. Local storage is a standard technology that allows a website or application to store and extract data on a computer, mobile phone or other device. Examples include local memory, HTML5 caching, or device memory.

WHY DO WE USE THESE TECHNOLOGIES?

We use these technologies for a number of reasons, in particular to ensure that we can provide you with appropriate content and improve our products and services.

STATISTICS AND MEASUREMENTS

Tools such as cookies and similar technologies (e.g. information on the device or a pixel on a website) are used to collect statistics about users and their interaction on our website.

WEBSITE FUNCTIONS AND SERVICES

These tools offer features that help us provide personalized services. For example, we may use cookies that allow us to suggest the Bureau Veritas US website to users who visit this site from the USA.

WHEN CAN WE USE THIS TECHNOLOGY?

We place or use these technologies when you visit our website with a browser or device that allows the deposit or use of such technology. For example, we may place or read cookies during your visit and retrieve device information.

UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES DO WE READ COOKIES ON YOUR COMPUTER OR DEVICE?

Browsers send cookies from a specific domain (for example bureauveritas.ch) to the website each time a device accesses content from that domain. This means that a bureauveritas.ch cookie is sent to Bureau Veritas each time a user opens a bureauveritas.ch page from that computer or device. In addition, these cookies are also sent to Bureau Veritas each time a user opens a third-party webpage or application that uses our services or one of our modules.

Occasionally, we work with websites, applications and their partners to read or place Bureau Veritas cookies on your browser or device. This allows us to collect statistical information in particular to improve our content and offerings for you.

Third party cookies

Our website contains the possibility to share some content on social networks. These third-party sites may record your browser information. We recommend that you observe the terms of use of these third party sites regarding the use of cookies.

DATENSCHUTZOPTIONEN

To control the use of cookies, you can configure the settings of most browsers to automatically accept or reject all cookies, or to be prompted each time a website tries to leave a cookie.

Some of our services do not require the use of cookies. However, if you disable cookies completely, the Bureau Veritas website and some of the services offered may not function or be displayed properly.
