C# Read app.config

Hi,

I have below app.config, how can I retrieve data (timeout, booster, ..)from this file?

 <sectionGroup name="applicationSettings" type="System.Configuration.ApplicationSettingsGroup, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" >
        <section name="UpdatePanel.Properties.Settings" type="System.Configuration.ClientSettingsSection, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" requirePermission="false" />
    </sectionGroup>
</configSections>
<startup><supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/></startup>
    <applicationSettings>
        <UpdatePanel.Properties.Settings>
            <setting name="TimeOut" serializeAs="String">
                <value>3000</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="Bridge" serializeAs="String">
                <value>bridge.csm</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="Booster" serializeAs="String">
                <value>booster.csm</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="Firmware" serializeAs="String">
                <value>firmware.csm</value>
            </setting>
        </UpdatePanel.Properties.Settings>
    </applicationSettings>
</configuration>

Thanks,
