Cookies issued by such third parties may, if applicable, allow them, during the period of validity of such cookies:
- to count the number of displays of advertising content broadcast via our advertising spaces, and to identify the ads thus displayed and the number of users who clicked on each ad, enabling the third parties to calculate the amounts due thereby and to have statistics; and
