The data we collect during our business relationship with you includes the following:

  • Requests you have made, for example, regarding the performance of our services

3.3 The data we collect automatically

Each time you visit our sites and applications, we collect information about your connection and navigation. Various technologies may be used to collect this data. The main one is the cookie.

  • Data collected through cookies

A cookie is a text file deposited when you visit a website, an application or an online advertisement and stored in a specific space on the hard disk of your computer or mobile device. Cookies are managed by your Internet browser and only the issuer of a cookie can decide to read or modify the information contained in it.

A cookie has a limited validity period. It is deposited and stored on your terminal in compliance with applicable legislation and subject to the choices you have made and which you can modify at any time, under the conditions specified in Article 9 below.

A cookie does not identify you personally. It allows its issuer to recognize your terminal and to collect a certain amount of information relating to the navigation made from this terminal.

Cookies have several functions, such as allowing you to navigate efficiently on a site or an application, remembering your choices, the goods and services you wish to purchase, offering you relevant advertising content according to your interests expressed during your navigation. You can find more information on cookies on the following sites:

The cookies deposited by SYCLOPE Electronique, subject to your choices, give us access to the following information:

  • Identifiers of the equipment you use (IP address of your computer, Android ID, Apple ID, etc.),
  • Type of operating system used by your terminal (Microsoft Windows, Apple Os, Linux, Unix, BeOS, etc.),
  • Type and version of browser software used by your device (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.),
  • Dates and times of connection to our services,
  • Address of the Internet page from which you came (“referrer”),
  • Browsing data on our services, content viewed.
  • Data collected by standard Internet technologies

We may also use standard Internet technologies, such as scripts, pixels and redirects. Scripts (sometimes called tags), written in javascript, are programs that run in your browser and perform various actions, such as sending information to our servers. Scripts are also capable of creating pixels. Pixels (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) are lines of code that display a graphic image (usually invisible) on a web page or in an email. Redirects make a web page available under multiple page addresses (URLs). When a browser opens a redirect URL, a page with a different URL is opened.

The purpose of these technologies is to enhance your experience on our sites and applications, including providing you with content customized to your interests. For example, when a user clicks a share button on an article, a script creates a pixel that tracks the share. This allows us to see the total number of shares of an article, and we can rank the most shared articles.

These technologies give us access to the following information:

  • Information about your use of our sites and applications
  • Information about the presence of cookies on your terminal, the time and date of a page consultation, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed
  • Information on whether you read the e-mails we send you, and on the clicks you make on the links contained in these e-mails.

Our sites and applications may also include third-party scripts, pixels and redirects. These technologies allow third party service providers to collect certain information such as your browser type, and the web page that redirected you to our websites. These third party service providers process the information they collect for auditing, research, and reporting information about our sites and applications and the advertisements viewed on them. We do not share your identifying information with these third parties in connection with their use of these technologies.

  • Data from Mobile Devices

Some mobile devices, depending on the features you have enabled (e.g., “Push” or “Geolocation”) when you download one of our applications, send information including: your phone model, operating system version, connectivity type, and the name and version of the application you are using.

This data, which is necessary for the proper functioning of the mobile applications that we publish, is automatically processed by our servers and those of some of our partners (in particular AT Internet, SmartAdServer) in order to provide you with a service and advertisements adapted to the technical characteristics of your device and to measure the audience of our application.

In addition, if you have accepted this feature when downloading our applications, we are able to identify the physical location of your device (geolocation), in particular to inform you about content or offers that we think are relevant to your expectations or interests or to improve your experience on our mobile applications. In accordance with applicable law, geolocation features can be disabled at any time in your device’s system settings.
