¿What are cookies?
Cookies are files that may be downloaded to your computer through websites. They are tools that play an essential role in the provision of many services of the information society. Among other, they allow a website to manage and recover information on a user or equipment’s browsing habits and, depending on the information obtained, they can be used to recognise a user and improve the service offered.
Types of cookies
Depending on the entity responsible for managing the domain from where cookies are sent and processing the data obtained, two types can be distinguished:
Own or proprietary cookies: are those sent to the user's device from a system or domain managed by the editor from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: are those sent to the user’s device from a device or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. In the case of cookies installed from a device or domain managed by the editor, but where the information compiled through them is managed by a third-party, they cannot be considered to be own cookies. There is a second classification according to the time they are stored in the client’s browser, and these may be:
Session cookies: are those designed to compile and store data while the user is visiting the website. They are normally used to store information that is only worth preserving to provide the service requested by the user on a particular website visit (for example, a list of products purchased).
Persistent cookies: data are still stored in the device and may be accessed and processed for a period of time defined by the cookie manager. This period may vary from a few minutes to several years.
Lastly, there is another classification with five types of cookies according to the purpose for which the data are obtained:
Technical cookies: are those that enable the user to browse the website, platform or app and use the various options or services it offers, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying sessions, accessing restricted areas, remembering the elements in an order, conducting the order purchase process, requesting registration or participation in an event, using security elements during browsing, storing content to disseminate videos or sound, or sharing content on social media.
Customisation cookies: are those that enable the user to access the service with certain general predefined characteristics based on a series of criteria found in the user's terminal, such as language, type of browser used to access the service, regional settings applied to access the service, etc.
Analysis cookies: are those that enable the controller to monitor and analyse user behaviour on the websites to which they are linked. The information gathered with these cookies is used to measure activity on websites, apps or platforms, and define browsing profiles of website, app or platform users, so as to make improvements based on the data analysis of the use service users make
Advertising cookies: make it possible to more efficiently manage any advertising spaces
Behavioural advertising cookies: These cookies store information on user behaviour based on constantly observing user browsing habits, which makes it possible to draw up a profile and show targeted advertising based on said profile.
