Specificity applicable to mobile terminals and applications:

For mobiles running Android OS and Apple IOS:
Sync technology is based on the display of Content when the mobile detects a relevant audio track. It thus enables contextual elements, advertising or Content to be proposed to the user on his mobile application when he is watching television. The aim is to make advertising less intrusive, as it is contextual and informative. When the microphone is switched on, all processing is carried out locally, using coded and compressed 500-millisecond chunks of sound. Sync therefore transmits no sound outside the mobile application. These 1/2-second chunks of sound never leave the device. The method used ensures absolute confidentiality. Sync2AD uses the AID as its sole reference. This is a virtual number created by Google Android for this purpose. No personal information is transmitted.
