Interest-based advertising preference platforms
Several platforms of advertising professionals also offer you the possibility of refusing or accepting cookies used by their member companies. These centralised mechanisms do not block the display of advertisements. They only prevent the installation of cookies to tailor advertisements to your areas of interest.
For example, you can visit the www.youronlinechoices.com website to prevent the installation of these cookies on your device. This website is provided by digital advertising professionals grouped within the European Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) and is managed in France by the Interactive Advertising Bureau France.
