WHAT ARE TRACERS?
Cookies are the most common form of tracers. Tracers are data used by servers to send information to a web browser or mobile application, and are then used by that browser or mobile application to return the information to the original server.
The information can be, for example, a session identifier, a language, an expiration date, a response field, etc.
Whilst active, tracers are used to store information when a user accesses various pages of a website or mobile application or when this user returns to this website or mobile application at a later stage.
On the internet, there are different types of tracers:
- Session tracers, which are deleted as soon as you exit the browser or the website;
- Persistent tracers, which remain on your device until their expiration or until you delete them by changing the settings in your browser.
