12. COOKIE INFORMATION
Each time you use our online services, including applications, cookies and other tracking technology is used in several ways. They enable the Dayuse.com website to operate, analyse traffic, or are used for advertising purposes. This technology is used directly by us and our business partners, including third party service providers and advertisers with whom we work. Below is more information about cookies, their use, and how to manage them.
12.1. What are cookies?
Cookies are a small quantity of data that a website installs in your computer's browser or on your mobile device. "Internal cookies" are placed by the server that is responsible for the relevant domain. Dayuse.com cookies are therefore "internal cookies." When we authorise other servers to place cookies on DAY USE websites and applications, these cookies are called "third party cookies."
It's also important to distinguish session cookies from permanent cookies. Session cookies cease to exist when you close your browser, while permanent cookies have a longer life span and are not automatically deleted when you close your browser. We make sure we place cookies or authorise placing cookies for a maximum period of 13 months. A cookie's life span can only be longer in exceptional circumstances and in cases of absolute necessity, for example for security reasons.
Similar tracking technology is also used. It can include web beacons (also known as invisible pixels, web bugs, or gifs), tracking URLs or software development kits (SDKs). A web beacon is a small one-pixel graphic image that can land on your computer as a web page request, on an application, in an advertisement or in an HTML email. Invisible pixels can be used to collect information from your computer, such as the type of hardware or operating system you are using, the IP address or browsing time. They also make it possible to place and read cookies on your browser. Tracking URLs are used to find out which website redirected you to DAY USE websites or applications. Software development kits are small code elements that are found in applications. Their function is similar to that of cookies and of web beacons.
For the purposes of this document, all these technologies are called "cookies."
12.2. How are cookies used?
Cookies are used for different purposes. They allow you to identify yourself as a unique user when you browse across several website pages, different websites, or on an application. The kind of information we collect using cookies includes your IP address, your device identifier, pages that you access, your browser type, browsing information, your operating system, Internet provider, time stamp, whether you are responding to an advert, the referring URL, features that are used or activities you engage in on the website or applications.
Cookies used on our website and applications have several functions:
Technical cookies: we do our best to propose an efficient and easy-to-use website, and applications that adapt to our visitors' wishes and needs. We use technical cookies to feature our website and make sure that it works well. They also help you create your account, connect, make a booking and manage your reservations. Technical cookies are absolutely crucial to the proper functioning of our website.
Analytical cookies (not required - consent required): we use these cookies to watch how users use Dayuse.com, find out what works and what doesn't, and optimise our website and application. They also help us gauge the impact of our adverts and communication, and ensure that we are always proposing interesting, relevant services. Data that we collect includes the pages you visit, open, and leave, the type of platform you are using, emails that you've opened and which led you to act, as well as the date and time.
This also means we can use information about the way you interact with the website, like the number of clicks per page, how your mouse moves, page scrolling, and search terms you enter in various fields. We also use analytical cookies as part of our online advertising campaigns to find out how users behave on our website or apps after seeing an online advert, including adverts on third party websites. Our partners may also use analytical cookies to find out if their users access hosting offers that are included in their website.
Cookies publicitaires (non indispensables – consentement requis): we use our own cookies as well as third party cookies to post adverts to our website and other sites. This is called retargeting, a technique based on terms you have searched for on our website, such as destinations, the hotels you viewed and rates that appeared.
12.3. How do I manage them?
You can manage cookies and at any time manage your consents by clicking at the top of this page to access the consent table.
If you'd rather block some technical and/or functional cookies, some of our website's features may not work.
Advertising. With regards to marketing or online advertising companies, we do our utmost to work with organisations that belong to the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). NAI and IAB members comply with strict ethical standards and charters in their field. They allow you to block advertising that is based on user behaviour. Visit www.networkadvertising.org to find NAI members who may have placed advertising cookies on your computer.
To unsubscribe from an advertising programme that is based on user behavior established by an NAI member, just click on the box that matches the relevant company. To find out more about unsubscribing from customised advertising, visit www.youronlinechoices.com or www.youradchoices.com. Your mobile device should help you restrict sharing information for retargeting purposes in its settings. Please note that unsubscribing from an online advertising network does not mean you will no longer receive or will no longer be targeted by online advertising or marketing surveys. By unsubscribing from the network, you will no longer receive advertising based on your preferences and your internet behaviour.
Analytics To manage data collection for the purposes of Google Analytics on some browsers, click on the following link: Additional browser module to disable Google Analytics (only available on computers).
For any question about this section on cookies, you can write to email@example.com.
