What are advertising identifiers?

These are unique identifiers used for the identification of mobile devices or Internet browsers. They are used by advertising platforms, so that it would be possible to link your activity on the websites and on the mobile devices; and so that it would be possible, based on this activity, to display a more relevant and interesting advertisement.
