+ See the table of content


With a freely downloadable version in French language.

The Values and Policies of Personal Information research Chair of the Mines-Télécom Institute, together with French audience measurement company Médiamétrie, has conducted a survey on the way French internet users manage their personal data. The survey, carried out in May 2019, aims to extend the one published in 2017.

The personal data of Internet users is very often at the heart of the business models of the main digital players. But to what extent, within what scope, are citizens willing to share their information, in what context and with whom? Are they subject to the practices of these major players or are they now developing new behaviours that prevent the collection of their personal data? What is the impact of their new practices on the way they express themselves online, search for information or buy products and services?
