Cookies are small files with information that a web site (in particular the web server) stores on a user’s computer, so that every time a visitor logs on to the web site, the latter retrieves that information and offers it to the user as well as the related services. A typical example of such information is the preferences of the user on a web page, as stated by the choices the visitor makes on that web site (eg selection of specific “buttons”, searches, ads, etc.).
The following text uses the term “tracker” as the most appropriate way to illustrate this technique.
Putting a tracker on a terminal requires first the consent of the user, whether or not personal data is ultimately processed.
We use trackers for many reasons. We use them, on the one hand, to establish a connection to the site, to provide an internet service or to remember your language preferences as well as to protect the data (cookies which are necessary for the use of the site and for which you are currently informed).
The most common classification system in use today was proposed and developed by The UK International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
The system relies on four classifications:
|CookieConsent||Stores the user’s cookie consent state for the current domain.|
|pll_language||Used to determine the preferred language of the visitor and sets the language accordingly on the website, if possible.|
