1. What is a cookie?

“Cookies” are text files that an internet site transfers to a user’s browser when they visit the site. They contain information related to the user that the website recognises the next time the user visits the site.

Various types of cookies exist: those used by the website that deposits the cookie, and internal and external cookies that are sent by third parties for advertising purposes or audience analysis.

A cookie does not necessarily contain your name or email address, instead it acts more like an id card for your browser which records your use of the website. They therefore help the website function properly and are used by most e-commerce sites.

2. What are cookies used for?

We distinguish between two types of cookies: those that we deposit, known as “first party” cookies, which are essential or functional; and those deposited by third parties, known as “third party” cookies, which are linked to audience analysis, advertising or social networks.

2.1. First party cookies  

Essential Cookies

Some cookies are essential and required for a website to function properly. For example:
- “Basket” cookies that enable you to find articles in your basket, even once your browser has been closed,
- “Authentication” cookies, which make it possible to automatically connect you to your account each time you visit the site,
- Cookies related to cookies settings, that enable the website to save your preferences with regards to cookies on the site.
- Etc.

This type of cookie facilitates browsing and can only be recognised and “read” by La Maison du Whisky. By definition, these cookies cannot be de-activated.

Functional Cookies

Other cookies are called “functional” cookies and their role is to improve your navigation of the website.  In the same way, the use of cookies enables us to offer you products based on the products viewed by the site’s users.

If you de-activate these cookies, you will not be able to access the full range of services we offer. Their de-activation may lead to these services not functioning properly

Audience analysis Cookies

Audience analysis cookies enable us to improve user experience. We use services such as Google Analytics to understand how visitors arrive at our site and how they use it. Our partners, service providers such as Google and Lengow, deposit audience analysis cookies in the name of

If you do not authorise these cookies, we will be very limited in our ability to improve your user experience.

2.2.  Third party cookies

These cookies are deposited by third party sites, partners of the Maison du Whisky site. They can be functional or essential for the service they offer or they can measure audiences. You may therefore find cookies deposited by Facebook and Google for their respective social networks.

We also offer you personalised advertising. These cookies remember the sites you have visited and display adapted advertising, either in relation to the sites you have visited, or to avoid you seeing the same advert too many times. These pertain to, for example, Netaffiliation, Google, Bing, Adverline and Tradespotting.

De-activating these cookies will limit your use of these services (sharing information on social networks) and the personalisation of advertising you see (it will not stop advertising from being displayed).
