Cookies or similar tracking devices are small files used by a server to send status information to a user’s browser, and for the browser to send status information back to the server where they originated.
Status information may be, for example, a session ID, language, expiry date or response field.
During the time they are valid, cookies make it possible to store status information when a browser accesses various pages on a website or when the browser returns to the website at a later time.
There are various types of cookies:
• Session cookies, which are erased when you close your browser or leave the site;
• Permanent cookies, which remain on your terminal until they expire or until you delete them using the menus available on your browser.
o Some cookies are strictly required to expedite your browsing experience on the AccorHotels site and enable you to enjoy all its features. This in particular involves:
• Processing user logins and the related security features, and ensuring the login module is working properly;
• Optimizing the user experience and facilitating browsing, in particular by determining browsing “technical paths”;
• Taking security measures (for example asking you to log in again to a page or service
after it has been idle for a given period of time, or ensuring the AccorHotels site is working properly and fulfilling its main technical tasks such as supervising performance and browsing glitches, managing user sessions adequately, etc.).
o Other cookies relate to specific features, and in particular:
• Adapt the AccorHotels site to your terminal’s display preferences (language, currency, resolution, operating system, web-page display configuration based on the terminal you are using and where you are, etc.);
• Store some of the information you type on the AccorHotels site in order to simplify and tailor subsequent browsing (in particular your first name and last name if you have a user account);
• Enable you to reach your personal space faster by storing your login and password or other information you have supplied at an earlier time.
o Other cookies are used for audience-tracking purposes. They are designed to enhance user
convenience and help us to understand interactions with the AccorHotels site (the pages that are viewed most often, the applications that are used, etc.). These cookies can be used to compile statistics, or to test different display configurations in order to improve the appeal and the user-friendliness of our services.
o Other cookies relate to social networks. They are supplied by third parties, and enable you to share your opinion about the AccorHotels site and content (for example the “Share” or “Like” application buttons from social networks).
The aforementioned social-network applications available on the AccorHotels site may, in some cases, enable said social networks to identify you even if you have not clicked on the application buttons. In other words, this type of button may enable the social network in question to track your browser on the AccorHotels site, simply because you have an open social network session on your terminal while you are browsing.
We advise you to check social networks’ policies and find out about how they intend to use any browsing information they may gather (in particular for advertising purposes). These policies should, in particular, entitle you to state your preferences on said social networks, for example by adjusting your user account settings on each one.
Installing certain cookies requires your consent. So, the first time you visit the AccorHotels site, you will be asked if you will allow this type of cookies. They will only be allowed if and when you agree to them.
You can change your preferences at any time, using the options below to delete cookies and other tracking devices.
By default, most browsers are set to allow cookies. If you wish, however, you can choose to allow all cookies, block all cookies or decide which cookies you will allow, depending on their origin.

You may also delete cookies from your terminal via your browser on a regular basis. Remember to adjust the settings in all your browsers on all your terminals (tablets, smartphones, computers, etc.).
The method to adjust your cookie preferences varies according to your browser. Please check the help menu on your browser to find out how to change your preferences: For example:
Essentially, whether or not a cookie is stored on your terminal depends on your preferences. You can change your preferences at any time and at no cost, using the menus you will find in your browser.
