Cookie management

Why doesn't this website have a cookie consent banner?

That’s right, you didn’t have to click on a bar that covers half the page to say that you agree to use cookies – if you even know what they are!

This applies to all websites and is no different. We act within the law, which in this case exempts certain analytics tools with the appropriate privacy settings from requiring user consent.

Technical cookies allow us to:

Collect anonymised data on visitors to our online service (software and applications, including websites, sections of websites and mobile apps) in order to gauge the relevance of content and pinpoint any issues with the browsing experience.


Cookies are small text files stored by the browser of your computer, tablet or smartphone. When you visit SignalConso, the cookie stored on your computer is used to save the items of user data described below to improve the browsing experience and enable certain features.

Types of cookies installed on SignalConso:

To make it easier to browse the site, we only use technical cookies. Some cookies are essential and cannot be deleted without seriously impairing access to the online service and your browsing experience, while others can impair your use of the site.

In order to improve the SignalConso user experience, we use cookies to measure and track our visitors.

The data we collect only provides anonymised visitor statistics (e.g. number of pages viewed, number of visits, frequency of visits, etc.).

We use Eulieran to measure visitor numbers. The French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) granted an exemption for the Eulieran Web Analytics cookie, so user consent is not required(learn more).

SignalConso does not make use of any personal data that it collects. For example, your IP address is made anonymous before being recorded. This means that your identity cannot be linked with any visits you make to SignalConso.

Eulerian uses cookies named etuix. These are stored for 13 months, are not transferred to third parties, or used for other purposes.

Matomo, a similar analytics tool, is also used to store historical anonymised visitor data that has been collected since SignalConso was first launched.

For Matomo, the names of the cookies used are _pk_session, _pk_id, _pk_ref. They are stored for periods ranging from 30 minutes to 13 months, are not transferred to third parties, or used for other purposes.
