If the User refuses to save Cookies on his/her device or browser, or if the User deletes those registered there, the User is informed that his/her browsing and experience on the Website may be limited. This could also be the case when DRT or one of its service providers cannot recognize, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by the terminal, the language and display settings or the country from which the terminal seems to be connected to the Internet.
If applicable, DRT declines all responsibility for the consequences related to the degraded functioning of the Website and any services offered by DRT, resulting from the refusal of Cookies by the User or the impossibility for DRT to save or consult the Cookies necessary for their operation due to the User’s choice. The configuration of each browser is different for the management of Cookies and User choices.

At any time, the User may choose to express and change his/her Cookie settings. DRT may also use the services of external providers to help it collect and process the information described in this section.

DRT, acting as a data controller, may occasionally use Internet tags (also called “tags”, or action tags, one-pixel GIF, transparent GIF, invisible GIF and one-by-one GIF) and deploy them through a partner specialized in web analyzes, likely to be located (and therefore to store the corresponding information, including the IP address of the User in a foreign country) in a foreign country.
These tags are placed both in online advertisements allowing Internet users to access the Website and on the various pages of the Website.
This technology allows DRT to evaluate visitor responses to the Website and the effectiveness of its actions (for example, the number of times a page is opened and the information viewed) as well as the use of this Website by the User.
The external provider may collect information about visitors on the Website and other websites through these tags, compile reports on the Website’s activity for DRT and provide other services relating to its use and the Internet.
