Énergir, L.P. (“We”) use various cookies or similar technology on our “Espace Fournisseurs” and “Espace Partenaires” websites (collectively the “Websites”) which are necessary for their proper functioning. If you browse these Websites, these cookies will be installed on your Internet browser.
A cookie is a small text file, containing information, that is stored on your device (your computer, smart phone, tablet etc.) by a website (on which you connect) and is associated with an Internet domain (i.e. in most cases to all the pages of the same website). This file is automatically resent during subsequent contacts with the same domain. Cookies will help the internet domain, or another internet domain, recognize your device the next time you visit.
We use the term “cookies” in this Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
To learn more: What is a "first-Party" or "third-party" cookie?
The distinction between “third party” cookies and “internal” cookies is technical. When a user visits a website, he consults in practice a “domain” which generally ends with an extension of the .com or .ca type (for example www.mywebsite.com is a domain).
The contents can be transmitted from the domain he is visiting or via other domains that he has not entered himself and which belong to third parties. Indeed, each cookie is associated with a domain and is sent or received each time the browser "calls" this domain. In practice:
"Internal" cookies are placed by the website consulted by the user, more precisely on the domain of the site. They can be used for the proper functioning of the website or for other purposes, in particular advertising;
“Third-party” cookies are cookies placed on domains other than the one visited by the user. These "third-party" cookies are generally managed by third parties who have been questioned by the website visited and not by the user himself. These cookies may also be necessary for the proper functioning of the website, but they are mainly used to allow the third party to see which pages have been visited on the website in question by a user and to collect information about him/her, in particular for advertising purposes.
Whether cookies are "internal" or "third-party" is a technical distinction that has no bearing on whether or not consent should be sought. In practice, a large majority of "third-party" cookies have purposes that require consent (for example advertising), but one can also find "third-party" cookies that are indeed strictly necessary for a feature expressly requested by the user and therefore exempt from consent. This is the case, for example, of cookies used only for federated authentication (when a single account allows access to several sites).
