Thanks to cookies, OSBORNE's server or that of a third party acting in our name is able to recognize the user's browser for easier navigation around our site. For example, previously registered users are able to access areas, services, promotions and contents that are available to them exclusively, without having to re-register each time. They are also used to measure audience and traffic and to monitor progress and number of entries.
When users allow cookies, they can obtain information on the servers that use the cookies by consulting the browser's instructions and manuals.

Users are not obligated to allow the installation of cookies sent OSBORNE or a third party acting in its name in order to use the OSBORNE website. However, if cookies are declined the user will have to start a new session for each service that requires prior registration or login.
Likewise, OSBORNE's web servers may detect the user's IP address and domain name automatically.
All of this information is recorded in a server activity file that makes it possible to process the data in order to obtain statistical measurements that tell us the number of pages printed, the number of visits to web services, etc. However, the file undergoes a disassociation process that prevents it from identifying the user's computer.
