What are cookies and what are they used for?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto your computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device when you visit certain websites. Among other things, cookies allow websites to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their device and, depending on the information that they contain and the way in which your device is used, they may be used to recognise the user. Cookies could never damage your device. On the contrary, the fact that they are enabled allows us to identify and resolve any errors.
Identification of cookies
Cookies are classified below according to a set of categories. However, bear in mind that a single cookie may fall under more than one category.
Types of cookies according to the entity that manages them:
Depending on the entity that manages the device or domain from which the cookies are sent and processes the data that is obtained, they can be divided into:
- First-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal device from a device or domain that is managed by the publisher and from which the service requested by the user is managed.
- Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal device from a device or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity which processes the data obtained through the cookies.
When cookies are installed from a device or domain that is managed by the publisher, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered first-party cookies.
Types of cookies, according to the period of time during which they remain active:
Depending on the period of time for which they remain active on the terminal device, they can be divided into :
- Session cookies: This type of cookie is designed to collect and store data while the user is visiting a website. They are normally used to store information that is only required to be stored for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
- Persistent cookies: With these types of cookies, the data remains stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a set period by the entity responsible for the cookie; this may range from a number of minutes to several years.
Add-ons cookies from external content providers:
The cookies used by add-ons of external content providers are necessary to allow the user to access the content or services provided by third-party providers, such as videos hosted on YouTube or viewing geographical locations on Google Maps. They are governed by the provisions of their respective cookie policies.
