What are cookies?
“Cookies” are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website, and that allow it to store information, for example to save your preferences for use or to recognize you on subsequent visits.
When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, the following is stored:
- The address / domain of the web that created the cookie
- The duration of the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years
- The content of the cookie.
What types of cookies are there?
Cookies, depending on their Permanence , can be divided into:
«Session cookies»: They expire when the user closes the browser.
- “Persistent cookies” . They expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Depending on their Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit a page. As an example, this typology includes: Volume settings for video or sound players or the 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 a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.
- Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives: User identified in such a way that, if he closes a service and at another time or on another day he re-enters it, the browser or computer will remain identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to re-identify himself. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is eliminated and the next time the user enters the service, the user will have to log in to be identified.
- 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 serve in future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the «Cookie» (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
- Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the User’s experience on the site.
Behavioral advertising cookies: This type of «Cookies» allows you to expand the information of the advertisements displayed to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing patterns and / or shares are stored as they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.
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 advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
What is local storage?
By local storage we understand any file created by the web on your browsing device. Cookies are a form of local storage, but there are others, for example:
- The local storage of the browser. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store information; “SessionStorage” is automatically cleared when browser; instead to delete the “localStorage” the user must delete the browsing history.
- The local Flash storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”). Flash is a browser add-on that allows you to incorporate interactive and multimedia elements on a website. Flash also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
- The local Silverlight storage (“Isolated Objects”). Silverlight is a browser add-on that allows you to incorporate interactive and multimedia elements on a website. Silverlight also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
- The web beacon is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on an Internet server on the web or in an email so that, when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image, the access is registered. Sometimes these images are very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of their existence.
