What are cookies?
Cookies are files that can be downloaded to your computer through the web pages. They are tools that play an essential role in the provision of many information society services. Among other things, they allow a website to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information obtained, they can be used to recognise the user and improve the service offered.
Types of cookies
Depending on the entity that manages the domain from which the cookies are sent and treats the data obtained, two types can be distinguished:
Those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third party cookies:
Those that are sent to the user’s terminal computer from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that treats the data obtained through cookies.
In the event that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.
There is also a second classification according to the length of time they are stored in the client’s browser, which may be:
Designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that is only relevant for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
The data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
Finally, there is another classification with six types of cookies according to the purpose for which the data obtained is processed:
Those that allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist on it, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, making the purchase process of an order, making the request for registration or participation in an event, using security elements during navigation, storing content for the dissemination of videos or sound or sharing content through social networks.
They allow the user to access the service with some general characteristics predefined according to a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as language, type of browser used to access the service, regional configuration from where the service is accessed, etc.
They allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform and to create navigation profiles of the users of these websites, applications and platforms, in order to make improvements based on the analysis of the data used by the users of the service.
They allow the most efficient management of advertising spaces.
Cookies for behavioral advertising:
They store information on users’ behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows them to develop a specific profile to display advertising based on it.
Cookies from external social networks:
