We offer a range of features that use this Technology to engage with you based on your activity within and outside of our services. To learn more about the ways you can control this, visit the "Privacy Options" section below.
We suggest that you regularly check this page in order to have the most up-to-date information about this Technology and how it is used.
Your browser or device may provide you with configuration settings related to this Technology. To learn more about the availability of these settings, their role and their operation, check the Help section of your browser or device, and visit the "Privacy Options" section below. Some settings may interfere with your use of the features that we offer. Furthermore, settings adjusted in a browser or a device typically apply only to that browser or device.
Cookies are small files placed on your browser or your device by a website or application you are using. Pixels (also known as clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixel tags) are small blocks of code on a web page or application that allow websites perform operations including reading and placing cookies, and sending information to Bureau Veritas or our partners. This connection can then provide information such as the device's IP address, the date of the pixel's display, the ID number associated with the browser or device, and the type of browser used. Local storage is standard technology that authorises a website or application to store data on a computer, mobile phone, or another user device and extract it from there. For example, this can include local storage, HTML5 caching, or device storage.
We use this Technology for a variety of reasons, in particular to ensure that we can offer you the most appropriate content and improve our products and services.
Statistics and measurements
Tools such as cookies and similar technology (like information on your device or a pixel on a website) are used to obtain statistics about people who see and interact with our site.
Site services and features
These tools provide features that help us offer services. For example, we can use a cookie that lets us suggest that users in the United States view the Bureau Veritas US site.
We can place or use this Technology when you visit our website using a browser or a device that allows for placing or using the appropriate Technology. For example, when you visit our website, we can place or read cookies, or receive information coming from your device.
Web browsers send cookies for a specific web domain (e.g. bureauveritas.com) to the website each time a device having those cookies accesses content coming from that domain. This means that a bureauveritas.com cookie will be sent to Bureau Veritas each time a user opens a page on bureauveritas.com from that computer or device. This also means that these cookies are sent to Bureau Veritas each time a user accesses a third-party website or application that integrates or uses our services, notably one of our modules.
Sometimes, we work with web sites, applications, and their partners to place or read Bureau Veritas cookies on your browsers or devices. This allows us to collect statistical information, allowing us to improve the content and services that we offer you.
