The American giant Google, following in the footsteps of Apple, had announced several months ago its intention to eliminate by 2023 the
third-party cookies in his Chrome browser.
The initiative of the American giant arouses great concern in the world of targeted advertising and site publishing, which accuses Google of wanting to keep its treasure of data on Internet users for itself.
In the new system presented Tuesday by Google, the principle would be that the user has his own advertising profile. This profile would be built according to his browsing on the web, and the Internet user would retain some control.
Chrome would identify themes
representative of the main areas of user interest for a given week, such as coaching
based on browsing historyexplained Google.
These themes would be
stored in memory for only three weeks before being deletedin a process that would happen
entirely on the device used, without involving external servers, including Google servers.
Internet users would have access to
control parameters their
allowing to see the shared themes, to delete the unwanted ones, or to completely deactivate the functionality.
These proposals are currently
at the concept stageand their application in practice need to be clarified, Google said.
The goal is to have these technologies deployed by the end of 2022so that web developers
can start their adoption in stride.
Web development companies and the advertising market are concerned about Google’s desire to eliminate advertising cookies.
The new model advocated by the American giant
will affect the advertising market and disrupt the digital press business modelhad denounced in March 2021 the European Magazine Media Association (EMMA) and the European Association of Newspaper Publishers (ENPA) in a joint press release.
He would allow
at the end of the day at google
further expand its own data monopolyadd these associations, since it will not be
more possible for third parties to understand and process the data records meaningfullythey had estimated.
