What are cookies?
Cookies are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when visiting a website, and which allow the website to store or retrieve information during the browsing session, for example, to save preferences or to recognise the user on subsequent visits, as well as to obtain information about their browsing habits.
What are cookies used for?
The most common uses or purposes are:
Essential technical cookies. These are used to manage the flow of browsing on the website or to keep the user connected to the website. When disabled, it is possible that some sections of the website may not function correctly.
Personalisation cookies. These are necessary to remember certain user preferences.
Analytical cookies. These help us and third parties collect information about the origin of users and their browsing habits on the website, for the purposes of statistical analysis to improve the structure and content.
Advertising cookies. These are used to manage the advertisements that appear on the website, and determine the content or frequency of the advertisements.
Targeted advertising cookies. These help to collect information on the user’s browsing habits in order to create a profile of their interests and show them advertisements tailored to those interests.
Social sharing cookies. These are necessary to identify the user on their social media and allow them to share content.
What do we mean by similar technologies to cookies?
Similar technologies are any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism used on the user’s device to obtain information. The most common include:
- Local storage on the browser. Some websites use local storage called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage”, as well as the browser indexed database, to store information;
- Local storage of browser plug-ins, such as Flash Local Shared Objects or Silverlight Isolated Storage.
- Web beacon is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on a server onto a web page (or an email) so that when the browser or email client connects to the server to download and view the image, the connection is logged. This provides information that the user has viewed the web page or the email. Sometimes this image is so small or transparent that the user is unaware of it.
- Fingerprinting techniques that combine information obtained from the browser or browsing equipment to distinguish a user on successive visits to different websites.
What are third-party cookies? Who are the recipients of the information?
Cookies on this website can be classified, depending on who creates them, into two categories:
- First-party cookies: these are created and managed from our websites and domains, and the information obtained is managed directly or indirectly by us for our own purposes.
- Third-party cookies: these are cookies that are created and managed by other websites that, although not completely under our control, provide functions and features that we have decided to include on our website, such as, for example, interactive maps, videos and multimedia elements, buttons for sharing on social networks, advertisements, etc. These cookies are under the control of the third party that provides the relevant function.
How long do cookies or similar technologies remain active?
Depending on their permanence or period of activity, we can differentiate between:
- Temporary session cookies: these remain stored in the browsing equipment until the user leaves the website. The browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
- Persistent cookies: these remain in the browsing equipment and the website reads them each time the user makes a new visit. These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which may be short or very long.
