Article 10 – Use of cookies


A "Cookie" is a general term for a text file saved in a dedicated space on the device's hard drive (for example, computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) from a media user (internet, applications, etc.) when you view content or online advertising. This Cookie file allows its issuer to identify the device on which it is stored, to track the media user's activity and to recall information, such as user preferences or information the user previously entered in forms, on the medium for as long as the Cookie is valid or stored. Certain Cookies are essential to using the medium, others optimise and customise the content shown, and other show advertising.

Cookies do not identify a user directly but identify the browser or a device. Information about the content viewed on a medium is directly linked to an identifier in the Cookie. When a user browses on a medium, this identifier is linked to the page views and, more generally, to the journey and interactions on the medium (number of clicks, for example); therefore, it is possible to track a user's entire browsing of the medium.

The use of Cookies allows browsing data to be linked to the user's profile no matter the device used thanks to cookie exchange technology implemented by the partners that publish these Cookies, generally communications agencies or digital advertising firms so that a user's journey can be tracked whatever the device or medium used.
