What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is a small amount of text that is stored in your browser (such as Google Chrome or Apple Safari) when you browse most websites.

What is NOT a cookie?

It is not a virus, nor a Trojan, nor a worm, nor spam, nor spyware, nor does it open pop-up windows.

What information does a cookie store?

Cookies usually do not store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or banking details, photographs, or personal information, etc. The data they store is technical, statistical, personal preferences, content customization, etc.

The web server does not associate you as a person but your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with the Chrome browser and try to browse the same website with the Firefox browser, you will see that the website does not realize that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information with the browser, not the person.

Below is information about the cookies of the social networks used by this website in their own cookie policies:

I carry out remarketing actions through Google AdWords, which uses cookies to help me offer specific online ads based on previous visits to my website. Google uses this information to display ads on various third-party websites across the Internet. These cookies are about to expire and do not contain information that can personally identify you. Please refer to Google’s Privacy Notice for more information.

I carry out remarketing actions through Facebook ads, which uses cookies to help me offer specific online ads based on previous visits to my website.

At HTL, I manage advertising campaigns through the DoubleClick tool, which allows me to collect all the information about my audience in a centralized way. DoubleClick uses cookies to improve advertising. Cookies are commonly used to target ads based on relevant content for a user, improve campaign performance reports, and avoid showing ads that the user has already seen.

DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to keep a record of which ads have been shown in specific browsers. When publishing an ad in a browser, it can use the cookie ID of that browser to check which ads have already been shown in that particular browser. This is how ads that the user has already seen are avoided. Similarly, cookie IDs allow DoubleClick to record conversions related to ad requests, such as when a user views a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website and make a purchase.

As an Internet user, you can delete the information about your browsing habits and the related profile that has generated those habits at any time, by accessing directly and free of charge: If a user disables this function, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID in the user’s browser is overwritten with the “OPT_OUT” phase. Since there is no longer a unique cookie ID, the disabled cookie cannot be associated with a particular browser.

Can cookies be deleted?
