What is a cookie – or a tracker?

Cookies or trackers are small files that record visits to and activity on websites or connected applications. Generally, they are linked to a mobile device or web browser, and enable website and app editors to collect quantitative and qualitative insights about how their products are being used. This activity, called tracking, is crucial to the constant improvement of products and services on the Internet, including features, usability, and personalisation.

This policy concerns all trackers set up and read when, for example, a user browses a website, reads an e-mail, or installs software or mobile apps on any device, including computers, smartphones, e-readers, or connected video game consoles.

“Cookies” can refer to any of the following (non-exhaustive list):

  • HTTP and flash cookies;
  • The result of fingerprinting techniques (fingerprinting calculates a unique device ID using its configuration information, for tracking purposes);
  • Invisible pixels or web bugs;
  • Any other ID generated by software or operating systems.


Why do we use cookies ?

We (StratNXT) might use cookies to collect browsing data from users (you) who visit our site, to improve your browsing experience. Cookies and trackers are also used to better target our advertising on partner sites, and to measure the performance of our ads.

Data we collect is completely anonymous, and used only for performance analysis and targeted advertising, or, sometimes, to test new advertising or marketing technology. In this last case, data is never used for commercial means and is deleted immediately after the testing period.


How long do we store cookies ?

We store cookies for 13 months, in compliance with the recommendation of the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés, the French authority on this matter, regarding the valid length of time for consent for cookie storing. After this time, consent must be re-obtained before cookies can be used again.
