This cookie allows the proper functioning of the site and greatly improves your user experience.


This cookie is only used to assign a specific session to the user. A major advantage of the session ID is that if you open multiple windows of the same web page, they are assigned to a single session.

This makes it possible to launch several requests at the same time without losing important personal information.

The session cookie is therefore used to store information about the current session.

Other information, such as login data or previously completed online forms, is also retained during the session.

However, if you end your browsing session, the session ID and all other stored data will be deleted. This means that when you open the same web page in a new browser window, you will be considered a new visitor.
