1. What are cookies and trackers?
Technically, a cookie is a computer file, which can contain any information (random identifier, email address, session token, etc.). These files are generally small. They are stored and read by your browser or by an application that accesses the internet (for example a mobile application on a smartphone) or by the operating system of your terminal (Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, Linux etc.).
A cookie belongs to a given domain (e.g. zeendoc.com), has a name, a content and an expiration date.
A cookie can only be read by a server in the domain to which it belongs.
1.1.1. First-party and third-party cookies
A "first-party" cookie (or simply a "normal" or "standard" cookie) is initially set by the website or server that the user is currently using. A "third-party" cookie is set or read when the user browses a website or interacts with a server where that website or server has embedded technology from a different server (i.e., a "third-party") and that technology implements a tracker or cookie owned by a different domain than the server the user is browsing on.
There is no fundamental difference between a standard cookie and a third-party cookie, it just depends on the context that has been associated with that cookie. For example, a cookie set by Google while the user is on google.com is a standard cookie for Google. But if the user is browsing a non-Google site, and that site includes features provided by Google (such as advertising or analytics), then there is a possibility that a Google cookie may be set and/or read even if the user is browsing a non-Google site. In this context, Google cookies are considered to be third-party cookies. Such a third-party cookie may well contain an identifier that allows Google to recognize the user, especially if the user has a Google Account and has logged in from his or her browser. Google can then associate the identifier contained in the third-party cookie with various data, including data about the user's browsing history on all sites that use the same tracking technology.
A tracker is any technology that can be used to determine that the same user is being used at different times. Cookies, including third-party cookies, are technologies that can be used to implement tracking: If a cookie contains a unique identifier (which may be random) and that cookie is read at several different times, the server that reads that cookie will know that it is the same identifier and, therefore, the same browser or terminal. The server that has this cookie can then record the fact that the navigation on a given page has been done from a browser that has previously navigated to another site and another page. The browser is thus identifiable and the server that reads the cookie can associate a browsing history with it, which is recorded in a database and then analyzed.
There are also other technologies that enable tracking, such as tracking pixels or browser fingerprints.
Tracking technologies are generally based on the assumption that a browser is associated with an individual. Thus, by tracing the use of a browser, it becomes possible to know the browsing history of an individual, to create typical profiles and to determine the probable interests of an individual, in particular to offer him contents that interest him more than others or to recognize him within the framework of a "Cash-Back" program so as to make it possible to associate rebates or refunds to this user when he places an order on partner sites of the cash-back program.
1.3 For more information
The following resources may provide additional information and details about cookies and trackers
Zeendoc operates several websites for professional use. By browsing any of these sites, you will be considered a professional and you agree that the provisions specific to consumers do not apply
We have implemented cookies and trackers for the purposes of navigation on our website, optimization, audience measurement, increasing our productivity, prospecting for potential new customers, our communication tools with you and customizing to your preferences the services and offers that we or our partners provide.
The data processed as a result of the implementation of these cookies and tracers are used by us, our partners and third parties in accordance with their purposes.
2.1 What types of cookies and trackers are used on our websites?
2.1.1. Cookie and necessary tracers
These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of our websites, for example by keeping track of your login to your account or by allowing us to keep the browsing context when you change pages, if you leave our website momentarily or to allow you to communicate with us. Necessary cookies are required to use our sites. Disabling these cookies may prevent the use of certain site features or the display of certain pages. Also considered necessary are cookies for audience and traffic analysis ("analytics" cookies) in order to satisfy our legitimate interests of optimizing our processes, increasing our productivity and acquiring new customers for our products and services.
The necessary cookies and tracers are not subject to the collection of the user's consent.
2.1.2. Functional and preference cookies and tracers
Functional cookies and tracers are useful for an optimized and more ergonomic navigation of our websites, for example by retaining some of your preferences (language or currency preference in particular) as you have defined them during a previous visit to our sites or to allow a faster display of our pages.
They may also be used to manage access to reserved and personal areas of our sites or services, such as your personal account, by memorizing for example your identifiers.
2.1.3. Cookie and statistical, analysis and audience measurement tracers
Cookies and statistical, analysis and audience measurement tracers allow us to better understand how our websites are used, which pages are the most viewed, how users find us, etc. These cookies and tracers are essential for us to be able to provide websites that are always better adapted to the expectations of our customers and visitors, in particular with regard to the ergonomics of our sites.
The use of this type of cookies and tracers is generally subject to the user's consent. The expression of this consent or refusal is collected during the first visit of an Internet user to one of our sites and can then be modified as mentioned in section 4.1.1 below.
2.1.4. Cookies and marketing tracers, intended for targeting
Cookies and tracers for targeting purposes essentially identify recurring connections from the same browser, on our sites and on other websites, so that we can build up a browsing history and deduce the user's likely areas of interest as well as other data, including, potentially, identifiers or contact information, such as e-mail addresses.
This makes it possible to offer content and advertisements tailored to the interests of users on websites visited using the same trackers.
Note that disabling cookies and targeting trackers does not necessarily disable ads: when you disable one or more trackers in this category, you may continue to see ads, but they will no longer be tailored based on your browsing analytics, and will be "generic" ads, i.e., the same as when you are using a new computer or a newly installed browser, with a newly created user account that is not attached to anything known to the companies that implement these trackers.
The use of this type of cookies and tracers is subject to the user's consent. The expression of this consent or refusal is collected during the first visit of an Internet user to one of our sites and can then be modified as mentioned in section 4.1.1 below.
2.1.5. Cookies and social network sharing trackers
These cookies and tracers may be deposited on your terminal by social networks. They are intended for sharing the contents of our websites on social networks. This may be the case when we add a "Like" or "Share" button that will allow these actions to be reported on the social network to which they are attached. These cookies and trackers are beyond our control, as is the data processed by these social networks. For more information on these cookies and trackers, we invite you to consult the privacy policies of each of these social network sites.
3. How long are cookies and traces kept?
Necessary cookies may last until you delete them, although most are deleted when you leave the session. All cookies and trackers, whether placed directly by our sites or indirectly via our sites, have a validity period which is mentioned in the list of cookies and trackers below.
4. Controlling cookies and trackers
4.1. Control of third-party cookies
4.1.1. For one of our sites
For details and to change your consent, go to this page :
Please note that when you refuse the installation or use of one or more cookies or trackers on one of our sites, one or more cookies are deposited which contain a trace of your choice. If you delete these cookies, which are intended to record your choices regarding cookies and trackers, it will no longer be possible to identify you as having refused or accepted the use of certain cookies and trackers. If these choice cookies are deleted, you will have to express your choice again. These choice cookies are called "CookieConsent".
4.1.2. Do Not Track
Some browsers implement a feature to indicate that you do not want to be tracked. This choice is transmitted to the sites that can take it into account in order to adapt their behavior.
You can find more information about this feature here: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Not_Track
Currently, there is no legal requirement or consensus for websites to recognize and respect the Do Not Track option. Therefore, few sites respect this feature, including ours.
We do not advertise on our sites!
