What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files widely used on the Internet that are downloaded to the user's equipment (computer or mobile device) when visiting a website. Some are strictly necessary for a website to function properly and others are used to analyze and optimize its performance or personalize the user experience. Cookies are associated with a browser and do not in themselves provide users' personal data.
Among other things, cookies serve to remember language preferences or other configuration options so that it is not necessary to modify them manually each time a website is visited, access restricted areas or services without having to register on each visit, measure website traffic and to collect statistical information, watch videos or share content on social networks, and offer content more adapted to the interests and browsing habits of the user.
Which types of cookies exist and what are they used for?
For the purpose they serve, the following types of cookies can be distinguished:
Technical cookies: They are those that allow the user to navigate through a web page and make it possible to use the different options or services that exist on it. For example, they serve to control traffic, identify the session, use security elements during navigation, remember the elements of the last visit or share content through social networks. They are also called strictly necessary cookies, because a web page cannot function properly without these cookies.
Personalization cookies: These are those that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria in the user's terminal, such as, for example, the language, the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the locale from where you access the service. These cookies make the appearance or operation of the website adapt to these predefined characteristics.
Analysis cookies: These are those that, treated by the owner of the website or by third parties, help to measure the traffic of a website and understand how visitors use it, collecting statistical information in aggregate form to optimize its operation and improve user experience. They are used to quantify the number of visits, to know which pages are most consulted, to calculate the average time of each visit or to know the geographical origin of a visit.
Advertising cookies: These are those that, treated by the owner of the website or by third parties, can manage in the most efficient way possible the offer of advertising spaces that are on a website based on criteria such as edited content or frequency in which the ads are found, and measure their effectiveness. For example, prevent the same ad from being repeatedly shown to the same visitor and select how to interact with public content.
Behavioral advertising cookies: These are those that, treated by the owner of the website or by third parties, allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the editor has included on a page website from which the requested service is provided. These cookies store information on user behavior obtained through continuous observation of their Internet browsing habits, which allows developing a specific profile to display advertising and content tailored to their interests.
Depending on the length of time they remain active, two types of cookies can be distinguished:
Session cookies: These are a type of cookies that are temporarily downloaded while the user accesses and is using a website, to allow them to navigate from one page to another more efficiently or to remember the configuration preferences they have selected (eg remember a list of products purchased in the shopping cart). Generally, these cookies are deleted when the browser is closed.
Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie that is still stored in the terminal after completing the navigation on a website for a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. Generally, these cookies remain until the user or the browser deletes them, and can be used to help web pages remember that you have previously visited them.
