- What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications install on the user’s browser or device (for example, smartphone, tablet or connected television) while browsing through the pages of the site or application, and are used to store information about the user’s visit.
Ensure that the web pages can function correctly.
Store the preferences, such as the language you have selected or the font size.
Know the user’s browsing experience.
Collect anonymous statistical information, such as which pages the user has visited or how long he/she has been on the website.
- Type, purpose and functioning
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used is met (for example, to keep the user logged in to the website) or when they are deleted manually.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
Strictly necessary (technical): These are those essential for the correct functioning of the page. They are usually generated when the user accesses or logs into the website and are used to identify him/her on the website for the following purposes:
Keep the user logged in so that if he or she leaves the website, browser or device and returns to the website at another time, he or she will continue to be logged in, thus facilitating navigation without having to log in again.
Check whether the user is authorized to access certain services or areas of the website.
Performance: Used to improve the browsing experience and optimize the operation of the website, such as storing service settings, or storing the purchase made in a shopping cart.
Advertising: These are those that collect information about the advertisements shown to the users of the website. They can be of two kinds:
Anonymous: They only collect information about the advertising spaces shown on the website, regardless of the user accessing the website, i.e. without expressly identifying him/her.
Personalized: They collect personal information from the user of the website by a third party, for the customization of these advertising spaces.
Geo-localization: These cookies are used to find out which country or region the user is in when accessing a service on the website in order to provide content or services appropriate to their location.
Analytical: Collect information about the user’s browsing experience on the website, usually anonymously, but sometimes also uniquely and unequivocally identify the user in order to obtain reports on the user’s interest in the services offered by the website.
