Cookies are files that can be downloaded onto your computer from web pages. They are tools that are essential to the proper functioning of many services in the information society. These allow, among other services, a website to store and recover information on the browsing habits of a user or his/her computer/device. Depending on the information obtained, this may be used to recognise the user and improve the service offered.
Types of cookies
We may distinguish between cookies that are strictly necessary for the correct functioning of certain services specifically requested by the user: if these cookies are disabled, you will not be able to receive our contents and services correctly; and additional cookies, which are necessary for some specific functions but which do not have a direct impact on the proper functioning of the service. They are related to follow up information, statistics, security, advertising and user behaviour, and may influence the improvement of the service.
Likewise, depending on the company that administers the domain from which the cookies are sent and handles the data obtained, a distinction can be made between two types of cookies: first and third party cookies.
There is also a third classification, depending on the amount of time the cookie is stored on the customer's browser, such as session cookies or persistent cookies.
Finally, there is another classification with five types of cookies, depending on the purpose with which the data is obtained: analytical cookies, technical cookies, advertising cookies, behavioural cookies and security cookies.
- Analytical cookies: necessary for the follow-up and statistical analysis of the behaviour of the users as a whole.
- Technical cookies: necessary for the proper working of the web, making it possible to store information and browse.
- Advertising cookies: used for the management of advertising spaces on the base of criteria such as the frequency with which the advertisements appear.
- Behavioural cookies: used for the management of advertising spaces according to the user's specific profile.
- Security cookies: used to prevent external attacks against the web or against the users that browse it.
