What are cookies?
Likewise, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by the users, so that they will be able to facilitate or to offer information adapted to the tastes and preferences of each user.
What types of cookies exist?
Cookies, depending on their Permanence, can be divided into:
- “Session Cookies”: The first ones expire when the user closes the browser.
- “Persistent Cookies”. The latter expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for tools within the Services, so you do not have to reconfigure the Service each time you visit. By way of example, this type of cookie is included:
Video or sound player volume settings.
Video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
- Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
- Logging Cookies: Logging Cookies are generated once a user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify you to services for the following purposes:
To keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day he enters the service again, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be removed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest
- Analytical Cookies: Every time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an Analytical Cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
To allow the anonymous identification of the browsing users through the “Cookie” (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend in time.
Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
To know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats a visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a service on the Web, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify you. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize the User’s experience on the site.
- Behavioral Advertising Cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows to extend the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among others, it stores the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, interaction with them, or navigation patterns and / or user compartments as they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they make it possible to offer advertising related to the user’s interests.
- Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Services of the Web coming from the browsers of the Users, as well as access to the data that in them are stored.
