- What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications install on the browser or on the device (smartphone, tablet or connected TV) of the user while they browse the pages of the site or the application, and they are used to store information about their visit.
- Ensure that the web page can operate properly.
- Store preferences, such as the language you 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 they have been on the Website.
- Typology, purpose, and operation
Cookies, depending on their duration period, can be divided into session cookies or persistent 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, for the user to remain identified on the website) or when they are manually deleted.
In addition, according to their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Strictly necessary (technical): Those are essential for the correct operation of the page. They are usually generated when the user accesses the Website or logs in to it and they are used to identify them on the Website with the following objectives:
- Keeping the user identified so that, if they leaves the Website, the browser or the device, and re-access that website some other time, they will remain identified, facilitating browsing without having to re-identify.
- Check if the User is authorised to access certain services or areas of the website.
- Performance: Used to improve the browsing experience and optimise the operation of the website, such as storing service settings, or storing the purchase made in a shopping cart.
- Advertising: These collect information about the ads displayed to website users. They can be of two types:
- Anonymous: These only collect information about advertising spaces shown on the website, regardless of which user accesses the website, that is, without expressly identifying the user.
- Customised: These collect the website User’s personal information by a third party, for advertising spaces customisation purposes.
- Geolocation: These Cookies are used to find out in which country or region the user is located when accessing a website service in order to offer content or services appropriate to their location.
- Analytics: These collect information about the User’s browsing experience on the website, usually anonymously, but sometimes allowing a user to be uniquely and unambiguously identified in order to obtain reports on users’ interests in services offered by the website.
