A cookie is a text file placed on your computer when you visit a web site or read an advertisement. It collects information about your browsing activity and sends you service ads adapted to your device (computer, mobile phone or tablet).
- Memorize your preferences and settings: If you visit one of the Webedia group websites or if you choose to display the comments according to a certain order (for example chronologically, the oldest on top), we can store these data in a cookie in order to provide you with relevant information when you revisit the site. This allows you to save time because it eliminates the need to enter the same information each time you visit the web site.
- Display the targeted advertising: When we display ads on our pages, we also store one or more permanent cookies on your computer or device in order to recognize them every time we publish an ad. When we display our ads and those of our advertising and publishing partners on our websites, we can, over the years, collect information relating to the type of pages, content and ads that you, or someone else who may use your computer, have visited or read. We use this information for several reasons. For example, it can help prevent you being exposed to the same type of ads all the time. This information also allows us to select and display targeted ads that we think are compatible with your preferences.
- Cooperate with partners: Besides the cookies Webedia may create when you visit our websites, third parties may also set cookies on your device when you visit websites belonging to the Webedia group. Sometimes, our web pages host third parties content or ads, such as videos, news or announcements supplied by other advertising networks. Given that your browser connects to these third parties web servers to capture this content, these third parties may set or read their own cookies on your device and may also collect information regarding your browsing activity, i.e. which websites you have visited and which online services you have used.
