To improve the website’s user-friendliness, Renault Classic uses services offered by third parties, such as:

  • Buttons for sharing (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+);
  • lists of tweets (Twitter);
  • streaming video on the website (YouTube).

These features rely on third-party applications integrated into our website. The social network providing this application button may identify you via this button, even if you did not use this button when you visited our website. Indeed, this type of application button may allow the social network in question to track your browsing on our website, by the mere fact that your account on the social network in question was activated on your device (open session) at the same time that you were browsing our website.

6.4 Platforms for making objections

Several advertising professional platforms also allow you to refuse or accept cookies used by companies that are members of these platforms. These centralised mechanisms do not prevent advertisements from being displayed but only block the installation of cookies allowing advertisements to be tailored to your interests.

This site is hosted by the digital advertising professionals of the European association EDAA (European Digital Advertising Alliance) and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.

This allows you to find out which companies are registered on this platform and which allow you to refuse or accept cookies used by these companies to tailor the ads that may be displayed on your device based on your browser information: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/fr/controler-ses-cookies/.

This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and provides a centralised interface for you to refuse or accept cookies which may be used to tailor the ads that may be displayed on your device based on your device’s browsing experience.

7. IF YOU SHARE THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE WITH OTHER PEOPLE

If your device is used by more than one person and if the same device has more than one browser, we cannot be sure that the services and advertisements intended for your device correspond to your own use of that device and not to that of another user of the device.

In such cases, you are responsible for any shared use which you may allow of your device and for any settings in your browser which you are free to configure with respect to cookies. In particular, it is your responsibility to inform other such users of such shared use and settings.
