Cookies are files, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website. Cookies may be either «persistent» cookies or «session» cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Media.net is a contextual ad network.
Their proprietary 2-click ad format for text ads factor in only context of our pages to determine ad targeting and relevance.
That means the Media.net ad units on this website do not use any audience data that requires explicit user consent.
When a user clicks on a topic within a Media.net ad unit, they use the user IP for serving geo-targeted ads on the next page which is called the Results Page. Under GDPR, user IP is considered to be 'Personal Data' and Media.net will be considered a 'Controller'. So they will require consent from any user who is an EU subject under the law.
