Where technically possible and effective to do so, users can consent to the processing of their data by using the appropriate parameters on their browser or other applications, provided that they are able to configure the settings upon installation or update with a specific action to that effect.
This shall not prevent potential storage or access that is technical in nature for the sole purpose of transmitting a message over an electronic communications network or, to the extent strictly required, to provide an information society service expressly requested by the recipient.
Cookies used for any of the following purposes are exempt from the obligations set forth in Article 22.2 of the LSSI-CE:
- Only allowing communication between the user’s computer and the network
- Strictly providing a service expressly requested by the user
