Policy on cookies on the Didomi.io website



Last update: January 2023


The purpose of this policy is to explain to visitors to the www.didomi.io website what a cookie is and what categories of cookies are placed on their browser when they visit the Didomi website.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a type of tracker, a small text file stored by a server in the terminal (computer, smartphone, etc.) of a user and associated with a web domain. This file is automatically sent back during subsequent contacts with the same domain.

In other words, it is a small file that is automatically saved on the user's browser by the website visited.

Cookies allow Didomi and its partners to collect certain personal data about users and/or certain information about their preferences and their terminal (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.).

The rules applicable to cookies

In accordance with the French Data Protection Act (Loi Informatique et Libertés)[1], the prior consent of users must be obtained before allowing the storage of information on their terminals or access to information already stored on them. In other words, the consent of users must be obtained prior to the deposit and storage of cookies or other tracers on their browser.


This rule applies to all cookies, except for those that are strictly necessary for the provision of the service requested by the user or that enable or facilitate communication by electronic means. In these cases, prior consent is not required. For example, cookies that save the choice of language used by the user on a website or cookies that collect and store the user's choices regarding the deposit of cookies are exempt from consent.


Other cookies may be exempt from consent subject to compliance with certain conditions. These are audience measurement cookies that make it possible, for example, to measure the technical performance of the site, to detect navigation problems, to optimize the technical performance or ergonomics of the site, to estimate the power of the servers required or to analyze the content consulted.


The categories of cookies used and their purposes

A cookie can be classified according to its lifetime, the domain to which it belongs and its purpose.
The cookies likely to be deposited on the user's browser during his visit to the Didomi website may have a different lifespan, so they may be:


- Session cookies: as the name suggests, these cookies are temporary, meaning that they are deleted as soon as the user closes the browser,

- Persistent cookies: unlike session cookies, these cookies remain on the user's terminal for a pre-defined period of time, even if the user closes the browser.


As mentioned above, cookies can also be of different types depending on the domain to which they belong. In this respect, the cookies that may be deposited on the user's browser when visiting the Didomi website may be:


- Internal cookies, also known as "first party cookies": these are cookies created and deposited by the website (more precisely by its domain) visited by the user, and/or

- Third party cookies: these are cookies created and stored by a third party separate from the website the user is visiting.


Finally, cookies can be classified according to their usefulness: 


- Strictly necessary cookies: these are cookies that are necessary for the operation of the site and they enable browsing or the use of the site's services and functions (session identifier, authentication, security, multimedia content player, balancing, language or preferences, etc.). Cookies enabling the implementation of the cookie deposit consent tool, for example, constitute strictly necessary cookies according to the recommendations of the CNIL. In view of their strictly necessary nature, these cookies do not require prior consent from the user as they are exempt from consent.

- Functional cookies: these cookies are not essential to the proper functioning of the site but make it easier to use the website. They make it possible, for example, to maintain parameters from one page to another, to monitor sessions or to carry out performance tests on the site (A/B tests).

- Statistical analysis cookies: these cookies collect information on the use of the site by visitors (for example, which are the most frequented pages of the site) and make it possible to improve its operation. These cookies make it possible, for example, to carry out internal analyses of the behaviour of users on the website, to detect the first session of a user's consultation of a page on the site and to link all of his or her interactions to a unique identifier for statistical analysis purposes. With some exceptions, these cookies may not be deposited without your prior consent.

- Advertising cookies: these are cookies used to understand your browsing habits and activities, and may be used to establish your consumption profile in order to offer you tailored advertising content. These cookies cannot be placed without your prior consent.

- Marketing cookies: these cookies allow us to carry out marketing analyses, in particular to track visits to the website's internet pages, to carry out traffic statistics, to retain the identity of a visitor who has submitted a form, to communicate with a user who has previously visited our website, to record and track conversions or to record the times of visits to the website.
