One way in which we collect information is through "cookies".
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a harmless file that is downloaded to your computer's browser (e.g., Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, etc.) when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to remember access, store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment, as well as to facilitate a better browsing experience.
Thus, there are cookies that obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city to which the IP address from which it is accessed is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the time of visit, the browser, the operator or the type of terminal from which the visit is made.
What is NOT a cookie?
It is not a virus, Trojan, worm, spam, spyware or pop-up windows.
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank details, photographs, your ID card or personal information, etc. The data they do store are of a technical nature, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person, it associates you with your web browser. In fact, if you usually browse with Microsoft Edge and try browsing the same website with Firefox or Chrome you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person because it is actually associating you with the browser, not the person.
What happens if I disable cookies?
You will find below some examples of how your browsing experience may be affected if you disable cookies:
- You will not be able to share content from the website on LinkedIn, Twitter or any other social network.
- The website will not be able to adapt the contents to your personal preferences.
- You will not be able to access the personal area of the website, if any.
- It will not be possible to customise your geographical preferences such as time zone, currency or language.
- The website will not be able to perform web analytics on visitors and web traffic, which will make it difficult to know which of the content we publish is most relevant to our users.
- You will not be able to write on the blog, upload photos, post comments, or rate content. The website will also not be able to know if you are a human or an automated application that publishes spam.
What types of cookies are there?
Depending on the entity managing the cookies
Depending on the entity that manages the equipment or domain from which the cookies are sent and data is processed, we can distinguish:
- First-party cookies: These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In the event that the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as First-party cookies.
In relation to the EU Directive, all analytical, advertising or affiliate cookies must have the user's express consent, with the exception of those that are necessary for the correct functioning of the website or the provision of the services expressly requested by the user.
According to the length of time they remain in storage
There is also a second classification according to the length of time they remain stored in the client's browser:
- Session cookies: designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of products purchased).
- Persistent cookies: the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained are processed:
- Technical cookies: those that allow the user to browse through a website, platform or application and use the different options or services that exist on it, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, making the application for registration or participation in an event, using security elements during browsing, storing content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, or sharing content through social networks.
- Personalisation cookies: these 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 the language, the type of browser used to access the service, the regional configuration from which the user accesses the service, etc.
- Analysis cookies: these allow the party 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 for the elaboration of browsing profiles of the users of these sites, applications and platforms, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage of data by the users of the service.
- Advertising cookies: allow for the most efficient way of managing advertising spaces.
- Behavioural advertising cookies: these store information on user behaviour obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits. This allows for a specific profile to be created in order to display advertising based on these particular browsing habits.
