This means that the cookie can allow to identify the user.
• Advertising cookies: these can either be handled by us or by third parties. They allow to manage advertising spaces available on the web page as best as possible.

Are there any other types of web storage tools?
Some websites may use other forms of storage tools which are similar to cookies but more powerful such as other local storage tools within the user’s equipment such as:
• HTML5 Local Storage and Session Storage, which is a space that the web page can use inside the user’s equipment. It is usually possible to delete the browser’s track record to eliminate those tools.
• Flash “Local Shared Objects” (Silverlight’s “isolated storage”). These are stored inside Microsoft’s file that contains the user’s profile. You need to enter the file and eliminate the cookie (Vimeo’s videos for example).
These files are more intrusive than cookies and prove more complicated to eliminate. They store more information and do not depend on the type of browser used. We do not use this kind of web storage.
