Profiling Cookies

Other cookies can be used to monitor and profile users during navigation, study their movements and browsing or consumption habits (what they buy, what they read, etc.), even for the purpose of sending targeted and personalized advertising (so-called Behavioral Advertising).

In particular, Metro C uses navigation data collection and aggregation software useful for providing reporting to analyze the site’s performance, called MATOMO.
