A banner ad is a form of advertising on the World Wide Web delivered by an ad server, which can be a graphic image, a set of animated images, or an interactive element (usually known as rich media).This form of advertising entails embedding an advertising into a web page. Regardless of the size of the banner ad, when a user clicks the advertisement, he or she is redirected to the advertiser's website. The technology behind these adverts is based on Cookies*.
*Cookies: A cookie is a tiny computer file used by Internet professionals to exchange a restricted amount of information with the Internet user’s computer. Cookies may be used, for example, to record the browsing preferences selected by an Internet user when visiting a website, or to record the login entered on a website requiring identification, or the content of a basket when shopping online, etc. The features and information stored in each cookie vary according to the type of service and website it is associated with.
The Hi-media cookie contains no information that can be used to identify or locate an individual Internet user. It is not shared, not used by third parties and communicates only with Hi-media Performance network systems. The Hi-media cookie contains only a number assigned to the Internet user’s computer and a series of references corresponding to websites visited. Hi-media is thus able to determine that computer no. XXXXXXXXX browsed a certain website and accordingly trigger the display of advertisements bearing a relation to the website (and hence to the Internet user’s choices), without knowing where the Internet user is located and without being able to identify him/her. Hi-media has no means of linking an Internet user to the number assigned to his/her computer. Furthermore, Hi-media cannot obtain any information regarding the Internet user’s computer from the assigned number. The Internet user’s privacy is therefore protected.
