They do not provide references that allow you to deduce the user's first and last name and can not read data from your hard drive or include viruses on your computers. Also, you can not read the cookies implanted on the user's hard drive from other servers.

They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or hinder cyber attacks against the website or its users. They allow media managers to know statistical data collected to improve the quality and experience of their services. They serve to optimize the advertising we show to users, offering the one that best suits their interests.
