The processing of personal data carried out within the framework of Our Services is subject to continuous internal controls placed under the authority of our appointed "Data Protection Correspondent" ("Correspondant Informatique & Libertés" / CIL) to the French Data Protection Authority ("Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés" / CNIL).

This Privacy Policy does not apply to services or Data processing implemented by Our Partners, or to the practices of Third Parties outside of the 1000mercis Group, upon which the 1000mercis Group does not exercise any control.


Since its creation, the 1000mercis Groups has always strived to foresee consumers' and Internet users' expectations, both with regard to the protection of their privacy, and in commercial matters. Our ultimate ambition is to send offers to Our Members which can indeed interest them and which are more pertinent and less frequent than those distributed by our competitors.

Thus, in order to adapt the frequency of messages and the type of offers sent by matiro to its members, We process Browsing Data attached to their Terminal(s) and to the web browsers used by their Terminal(s).

2.1. What is Browsing Data?

It concerns, in particular,

2.2. What do We use it for?

- For making Our services secure

Legally, certain pieces of Browsing Data have to be kept in order to allow Us to ensure the security of Our electronic communication services and to detect, avoid and find attempted cases of criminal intent or computer system intrusion or violation of the conditions of use of Our services. This is the case with regard to the IP address and the dates and times of connection of a Terminal to one of Our Services.

- For measuring receipt and consultation of Our electronic mails

We may be led to process Browsing Data on the occasion of the receipt or consultation of electronic canvassing that We have sent to a Member. This Browsing Data can in particular come from the Cookies that We use within the electronic mails that We distribute, subject to the choices expressed by the Members concerned in their web browsers and to Us.

This Browsing data allows Us:

- For adapting the electronic mails to the Members to whom We send them

We may be led to process Browsing Data concerning the reaction of Members to electronic mails (e-mail, SMS, MMS) that We have sent them: was this mail received and consulted, did the Member react to the content of this mail or not, did they visit the online service promoted by this mail or not, did the Member subscribe to the promoted offer, etc.?

This Browsing Data, associated with a Cookie issued by matiro, also concerns consultation of Our Partners' electronic communication services via Members' Terminals. If necessary, this Browsing Data can allow Us, subject to Your consent and, unless you inform Us of your opposition, to determine what electronic canvassing (via e-mail, SMS or MMS) is likely to be of interest to Users, according to Our Partners' electronic communication services previously consulted via their Terminals.

However, when a Member's Terminal is used by several persons, and when the same Terminal possesses several web browsers, We cannot make sure that the electronic canvassing sent to the Users corresponds to their own use of their Terminal and not to the use of their Terminal by other.

If necessary, sharing use of their Terminal with other persons comes within the Member's free choice and responsibility. In addition, the Member's management of the parameters for the protection of their privacy offered by their Terminal's web browser(s), comes within their free choice and their sole responsibility.

- For adapting the electronic advertising we diffuse to the Terminals

The Browsing Data allows us to adapt the content or display of an electronic advertising to the Member's Terminal for which We intend it, while determining:


The recording of Cookies in Terminals is subject to the wishes of the user of the Terminal. The latter can express and change these wishes at any time via the choices offered to him by his web browser, in accordance with applicable law.

In order to find out the options offered by Your web browser and the practical details for the deletion of Cookie files stored in Your Terminal, according to the browsers installed on your Terminal, We invite You to consult the "Vos Traces" ("Your Traces") section of the French Data Protection Authority (Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés / CNIL) website:
