Cookies policy






Reminder: the User is informed that during his/her visits to the Site, cookies may be installed on his/her Terminal Equipment when these are necessary for the functioning of the Site. Indeed, like many websites, the Innoval agricultural cooperative society with variable capital (the creator and manager of this website – hereafter referred to as « the Site ») uses cookies and similar technologies necessary for the functioning of the Site and to operate its services. When the User consults the Site, information concerning how the User’s terminal equipment (computer, smartphone, tablet, digital player, video game console connected to the Internet, etc.; hereafter referred to indiscriminately as « Terminal Equipment ») navigates through the Site may be saved in cookie files installed on the Terminal Equipment.

Définition of a cookie: a cookie is a small computer file in text format, containing a set of data, that is likely to be saved in the storage space of the User’s Terminal Equipment when the User consults an online service with his/her browser software. The cookie is sent by the Site or third-party websites to the Terminal Equipment and stored by the User’s Internet browser. Cookies are not considered as spyware or viruses.

A cookie enables:

  •  its issuer: to identify the Terminal Equipment in which it is stored, throughout the period of validity or storage of the cookie;
  • the Internet browser: to send information back to the site of origin (for example: a session identifier, the choice of language).

Purpose of this document: this cookie management policy explains what cookies are used, how Innoval uses them, and for what purposes.


If the User has any questions about this cookie policy, he/she is welcome to contact us (contact details are given in the « Legal notices & GTU » tab of the Site).
