What are Cookies?
A Cookie is any type of file or mechanism that is downloaded to a user’s terminal equipment for the purpose of storing data that may be updated and retrieved by the entity responsible for its installation. Cookies allow websites, amongst other things, to store and recover information about the users’ browsing habits or their equipment, and, depending on the information that it contains and the way it uses your device, they can serve to recognise users. The user’s browser cookies are stored on the hard drive for the current session only, occupying minimal memory space and not harming the device in any way. Cookies do not contain any specific personal information, and most cookies are deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browser session (so-called session cookies).
Types of Cookies
According to the entity that manages them:
– Proprietary cookies: These are those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
– Third-party cookies: These are sent to the user’s terminal from a server or domain which is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
According to how long they remain activated:
– Session cookies: These are a type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store only information relevant to the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
– Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a pre-defined period by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
– According to their purpose:
– Technical cookies: These allow the user to navigate a web page, platform or application and to use the various options or services that exist therein, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted-access areas, remembering the items that make up an order, enacting the purchase process of an order, requesting registration or participation in an event, using security elements during navigation, storing content for the dissemination of videos or sound or sharing content through social networks.
– Customisation cookies: These allow the user to access the service with some general characteristics predefined by a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as the language, the type of browser used to access the service, the region from which the service is being accessed, etc.
– Analysis cookies: These allow their administrator to track and analyse the behaviour of users of the web sites that are linked. The information collected through these cookies is used to measure the activity of websites, applications or platforms and to create navigation profiles of the users of these websites, applications and platforms, in order to make improvements based on analysis of service user data.
– Advertising cookies: These cookies allow the most efficient management of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included in a web page, application or platform from which it provides the requested service based on criteria such as the content displayed or the frequency with which the ads are displayed.
– Behavioural advertising cookies: These cookies allow the most efficient management of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included in a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is provided. These cookies store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows them to develop a specific profile to display advertising based on it.
