They do not allow us to identify you; however, they record information relating to your computer’s navigation on the Site (the pages you consulted, the date and time of the consultation, etc.) that we can read during your subsequent visits.
The data collected thanks to “cookies” is intended to identify you when you wish to connect to your personal space and to remember your connection to the Site.

At any time, upon request, parents/guardians may have access to their child’s personal data and ask to have it removed from our databases by contacting the consumer service. Likewise, parents/guardians may exercise all of the rights their child has under the applicable regulations on personal data rights by contacting the consumer service in the manner set forth in Article 11 of this Policy.
The Chatbot, hereinafter “the Bot”, is intended to provide customized ideas and activities for families.
Exceptionally, personal data collected in the context of the answers given by the User will be processed for the purpose of managing his/her participation in the Bot.
All personal data collected in this context is managed by MVQR in accordance with this policy.
The user is also informed that the recipient of the data is the MVQR team dedicated to the management of the website [lamaisondelstg .com] and consents to the collection and processing of his/her personal data during his/her exchanges with the Bot and/or with the MVQR using the service.
The MVQR will not reuse this personal data for any purpose other than the purposes of the Bot unless you give your express consent. The MVQR also agrees not to sell or transfer this information to third parties.
