What cookies are?
A cookie is a file downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing user habits or their computers, depending on the information contained and the way they use their computer, they can be used to recognise the user.
What are cookies used for and what are they?
There are several types of cookies, and they can be used for several different purposes.
The main ones are:
- Technical Cookies: These are those that allow the user to browse through the website or application and use the different options or services that exist on it. For example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access to restricted web parts, remember the elements that compose an order, submit an application for registration or participation in an event, use security features while browsing and store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound.
Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, those cookies that enable the most efficient management of the advertising spaces that, as another element of the design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, the publisher has included on a website, application or platform based on criteria such as the edited content, without collecting information from users for other purposes, such as personalising this advertising content or other content.
- Preferences or personalization cookies: These are those that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics in their terminal or defined by the user themselves. For example, the language, the type of browser used to access the service, the selected content design, the terminal geographical location, and the regional configuration from where the service is accessed.
- Analytical cookies: These are those cookies that, either processed by us or by third parties, allow us to quantify the number of users and thus perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the usage made by the service users. To do this, the browsing and behaviour of the website users are analysed to introduce improvements based on the users’ service usage data analysis.
- Behavioural Advertising cookies: These are those that store users’ behavioural information obtained through the continuous observation of user browsing habits, which allows us to develop a specific profile in order to display advertising based on it.
- Depending on their durability they can be:
- Session cookies: Their validity expires when the browser is closed.
- Persistent cookies: Their validity can be variable, as the data continues to be stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a defined period by the party responsible for the cookie. They disappear once they have fulfilled the purpose for which they were installed or when the user deletes them manually.
In addition, these cookies may be own or third-party cookies. Own” cookies are only used by the owner of this website. In other words, they are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided. Third-party” cookies, on the other hand, are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. An example of this is the statistical services of Google Analytics and Comscore.
