Redirects are used to make a web page available in multiple page addresses (URLs). When a browser opens a redirect URL, a page with a different URL is opened.
The goal of these technologies is to improve your experience on our sites and applications, including by providing personalised content that matches your interests. For example, when a user clicks a button to share an article, a script creates a pixel that counts the sharing. Thus, we are able to know how many people shared an article, and we can rank the most shared items.
These technologies give us access in particular to the following information:
Our sites and applications may also include scripts, pixels and third-party redirects. These technologies enable third-party service providers to collect certain information such as your browser type, and the web page that directed you to our websites.

We do not share your login information with these third parties when they use these technologies.

Also, if you accepted this feature when downloading our applications, we are able to identify the physical location of your device (geolocation), in particular so we can tell you about content or offers we think might meet your expectations or interest you, or to enhance your experience with our mobile apps. In accordance with applicable law, location-based features can be disabled at any time in your device’s system settings.
