(EN) INFORMATION PROCESSING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRAITEMENT D'INFORMATIONS
Abstract
(EN)
An acquisition processing section 120 acquires information data addressed to a user and a notification processing section 160 gives notification of the acquired information addressed to the user. When a plurality of users have logged in concurrently, the notification processing section 160 gives notification of user identification information identifying the addressee of the information, along with the information. On the other hand, when only one user has logged in, the notification processing section 160 gives notification of the information but does not give notification of the user identification information. A login managing unit 130 manages login users. The notification processing section 160 determines whether or not to give notification of the user identification information depending on whether one user or a plurality of users are managed by the login managing unit 130.

(FR)
L'invention concerne une unité d'acquisition (120) destinée à l'acquisition de données d'informations destinées à l'utilisateur, et une unité de notification (160) destinée à la notification des informations acquises destinées à l'utilisateur. Lorsque plusieurs utilisateurs sont connectés simultanément, l'unité de notification (160) notifie à la fois l'information et l'information spécifique utilisateur qui mentionne le destinataire de l'information, tandis que lorsque seul un utilisateur est connecté, l'unité de notification (160) mentionne l'information mais pas l'information spécifique utilisateur. Une unité de gestion des ouvertures de sessions (130) assure la gestion des utilisateurs connectés, et l'unité de notification (160) permet de décider de procéder ou non à la notification de l'information spécifique utilisateur selon que l'unité de gestion des ouvertures de sessions (130) gère un ou plusieurs utilisateurs.
