These terms are defined in the General Terms and Conditions of Use ( and 

Equipment(s), Function(s), Browser(s), and User(s). 


When a User visits the Site, the Browser may record text files on the User's equipment. These files are called Cookies.

Cookies may be deposited either by Tdh or by third-party partners. Only the sender of a Cookie is eligible to read or modify the information contained therein.

After the stated lifetime, the User's consent - where applicable - is once again sought by the display of an information banner when browsing the Site. Cookies can be classified according to two main timeframes linked to their lifespan: 

Session Cookies disappear from the equipment when the User leaves the Site. 

Persistent Cookies remain stored on the User's equipment until the expiry of their programmed lifetime, depending on the specific features of the Browser and equipment, or until deleted by the User. 

Categories of Cookies and their potential uses 

Four (4) categories of Cookies exist and may be used by Tdh: 

Strictly necessary cookies: These are essential for the proper operation of the Site and cannot be deactivated. Among other things, they are essential to enable the User to browse the Site and use its features, for example to access the secure areas of the Site or to fill in forms. Users may configure their Browser to block or be informed of the existence of these Cookies, but certain parts of the Site may be affected. These Cookies do not store any personal data about the User and are generally session Cookies. 

Functionality cookies (or preference cookies): These enable the Site to remember the User's preferences and choices made in the past, and thus improve the browsing experience by offering a more tailored Site. For example, it may be the language that the User prefers, or information about their Personal Account and Password in order to log in automatically. These Cookies may be activated by Tdh or by third-party service providers whose services are used on the Site. If the User does not accept these Cookies, some or all of these services may not function correctly. These are generally persistent Cookies. 

Analytics Cookies (or Performance Cookies): These are used to carry out statistical analyses of the use and performance of the Site and to improve its performance, in particular the sources of web traffic to the Site, attendance volumes (number of unique visitors) and the use of the various elements of the Site (pages and content visited, routes, movements, sessions, locations, times, operating system, etc.) over a given period. These are generally persistent Cookies, and when the User decides not to accept these Cookies, Tdh is not informed of his or her visit to the Site. 

Remarketing Cookies (or Marketing Cookies): These track the User's activity in order to personalise their experience and the advertising they receive. These Cookies may be installed on the Site by Tdh's partners, in particular to establish a profile of a User's interests and to offer relevant advertising on other websites. These Cookies enable targeting and segmentation activities. They are generally persistent cookies; if the User does not authorise them, the advertising is less targeted.

Cookies used

The Cookies used by Tdh on the Site are detailed in this table: 




When Users visit the Site for the first time, they are given the option of accepting or refusing the use of different categories of Cookies. Acceptance leads to the creation of Cookies deposited on the User's equipment. 

The blocking and deletion by the User of certain Cookies may result in a deterioration in the functioning of the Site and its functions. In this case, Tdh declines all responsibility concerning the consequences linked to the level of functioning of the Site. 

If the User's terminal is shared with other people, Tdh cannot ensure that the settings applied with regard to Cookies are those chosen by the User. 


The User may manage and modify the use of Cookies at any time. 

Cookie management 

A management module enables Users to choose which of the Site's Cookies they wish to accept and which they wish to reject. Users can change their preferences at any time by clicking here: Manage my cookies

By configuring the Browser to refuse Cookies, certain functions, pages or areas of the Site may not be accessible to the User, for which Tdh cannot be held responsible. 

Browser settings 

The User may configure his Browser so that Cookies are recorded or rejected by his equipment, either systematically or depending on the sender. 

Users may delete Cookies from their equipment via their Browser. If the User deletes the Cookies stored on his/her equipment, he/she will be asked to accept or refuse the use of the various categories of Cookies the next time he/she visits the Site. 

Each Browser has a different configuration for managing Cookies and User choices. It is described in the Browser help menu, and enables the User to find out how to modify his/her choices with regard to Cookies.

Interprofessional opposition platforms 

Several professional advertising platforms also offer the option of refusing or accepting Cookies used by their member companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of advertisements, but only prevent the installation of Cookies that enable advertisements to be tailored to the interests and behaviour of website users. 

By way of example, Tdh invites Users to visit the website in order to prohibit the installation of these Cookies on their equipment. This site is proposed by digital advertising professionals grouped together within the European Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA). 

It is therefore possible to find out which companies are registered with this platform and which offer users of any website the option of refusing or accepting the Cookies used by these companies to tailor advertising that may be displayed on their equipment:

This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and constitutes a centralised interface enabling users to express their refusal or acceptance of Cookies likely to be used in order to adapt the advertising liable to be displayed there. 


When using Cookies, Tdh may process personal data as defined by the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA). 

For more information on the processing of personal data by Tdh, Users are invited to consult the Tdh Privacy Policy. ( and 


The provisions of Swiss law apply to this CP. The application of conflict of law rules is excluded. 

The exclusive place of jurisdiction is the domicile of the Site Manager (see the Legal Notice) and invalidity of certain provisions does not affect the remaining validity of the CP.
