The various cookies
Under the terms of this policy, the terms “cookies and other trackers” or “cookies” refer to all of the trackers left and read while users browse websites and other media from the Ovhcloud group within the European Union, and member states of the European Economic Area (EEA). This includes HTTP cookies, flash cookies, tags (also known as invisible pixels and web bugs), scripts, and fingerprinting results. This policy applies, regardless of whether or not the data collected by the cookies is personal.
In this case, data related to website visitors, their browsing and their actions associated with the content they are interacting with is accessible by these third-party platforms. Ovhcloud Group websites insert different social modules and pixels that enable users to request content from the platforms that deliver it. In this case, the platforms delivering these modules are considered as data controllers under the GDPR when they determine the purposes and means of processing data in line with their confidentiality policy.
