Indeed, you can access and know your statistics such as the number of visitors that discover and visit your site using a tablet or smartphone thanks to your QR code and/or know how many people clicked the short links use on your site in order for instance to have a download counter (if you link to a document) or to be able to know how many visitors you regularly provide to a third party if your short link is pointing to a partner's website.

PayPal security update
If you use the PayPal payment system on your site, you have certainly been informed by PayPal to stop using the root certificate VeriSign G2 and perform an update to support certificates using SHA-256 algorithm. No changes have to be made either in TOWeb nor your site since it is only a security upgrade that needs to be performed on your web server. So if you encounter PayPal payment issues on your site and do not know which security certificates are used by your host provider, you should contact them to verify that your web server is in compliance with PayPal's security expectations.
