The BNP Paribas Group is committed to delivering the best possible service to you while maintaining the confidence that you place in us.

As part of this, we have adopted strong principles across the Group to ensure the protection of your data.

As such, we would like to provide you with transparent information about how we place, use and store cookies on your device when you use our website (the “Website”) and present you the option to manage and to delete cookies.

1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text, image or software files that are placed on your device when you access our Website. The word “device”, when used in this Cookies Policy, refers notably to computers, smartphones, tablets and all other devices used for accessing the internet.

Cookies may be either: (i) session specific, meaning that they are deleted from your device once the session and browser are closed; or (ii) persistent meaning that they will remain on your device until they are removed.

Cookies on this Website perform a number of useful functions, such as to:

  • Enhance the security, e.g. by preventing attacks on Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF);
  • Keep track of your preferences and settings in your use of our Website (e.g. language).

2. What kind of information can be stored in a cookie?

The information stored by the cookies on your device may relate to the following, subject to its retention period:

  • the type of browser you use;
  • your language settings;
  • and any other information that you have provided on our Website.

Cookies may contain personal data. Where we use cookies which collect your personal data, such collection is covered by our Data Protection Notice.

3. What kinds of cookies do we use and for what purpose?

Cookies used on our Website are classified into different categories.

Strictly necessary cookies (mandatory)

These cookies are essential for the Website to function properly. They may include, for example, cookies which collect session ID and authentication data. This category also includes cookies that allow us to comply with our legal obligations, including ensuring a safe online environment.

Preference cookies (subject to your consent)

These cookies are used, for example, to remember the preferences indicated during your visit to our Website (e.g. language settings) and to improve our Website and your user experience.

Analytics cookies (subject to your consent)

These cookies allow us to understand how users arrive on our Website, to measure the number of visitors to our Website, but also to analyze the way in which visitors browse the Website or reconstitute their journey.

This helps us improve the way our Website works by ensuring, for example, that users easily find what they are looking for.

For this we use the services of Matomo, however, only if you have given your consent.

4. How can you manage cookies?

To see the different categories of cookies that we use on the Website and configure your choices, you can consult the cookie management module accessible via Cookie Settings. You can modify at any time your preferences, withdraw or give again your consent at any time.

Please note that the use of strictly necessary cookies for the proper functioning of the Website does not require your consent. This is why the option “strictly necessary cookies” is pre-checked in our cookie management tool and is not optional.

By refusing preference cookies we will not be able to optimize your user experience on our Website and some parts may not function properly.

By default, we save your cookie choices on a device for a maximum of 6 months. If you change your mind about the preferences you have expressed regarding cookies, you can update your choices at any time, by following Cookie Settings. We will ask you to make a choice again every 6 months.

This website uses Matomo analytics cookies which is strictly necessary. However, you can disable this cookie by clicking below.
