6.2. Managing Cookies On-line from Interprofessional Platforms:
You can also visit the Youronlinechoices website, which is proposed by digital advertising professionals, grouped together in the EDAA Association (European Digital Advertising Alliance) and managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.
Like this, you can discover the companies that are registered on this platform, which offer you the possibility to accept or refuse the cookies that they use to tailor advertising that is likely to be displayed on your browser: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/fr/controler-ses-cookies/.
This European platform is shared by hundreds of Internet advertising professionals and is a real centralized interface that offers you the possibility to express your cookie acceptance or refusal.
This process will not, however, stop advertising from being displayed on the websites that you visit. It will only block the technologies that are used to tailor the advertising to your centres of interest.
