What does cookies mean?
The cookie is a small text file that a site saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit it. Thanks to cookies, the site retains your actions and preferences (login, language, character size, and other display preferences) over a period of time. So you do not have to re-enter them anytime you come back to the site or navigate from one page to the next.
A “Cookie Internet” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed on a web browser request from a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware, and can not access the information on the hard drive, the user). A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or the cookie value. Furthermore, the duration of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.

Cookies for geotargetting

Cookies for advertising
These cookies let us know whether or not you’ve seen an online ad, what type of ad, and how long it has been since you saw the ad message. These cookies are also used to target online advertising. We may also use third-party cookies for better advertising targeting, such as holiday ads, for example, if the user has recently visited an article on holiday sites.
