What are cookies?
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 are used is fulfilled (e.g. to keep the user logged in to the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Depending on their Owner, can be divided into:
- Own cookies. These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party cookies. Cookies are those 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 addition, depending on their Purpose, 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. By way of example, this type of cookie includes:
- Volume settings of video or sound players.
- Video bitrates that are compatible with your browser.
- Geo-location cookies. These cookies are used to find out what 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.
- Registration cookies. Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify you in the services for the following purposes:
- Keep the user identified so that, if you close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter that service, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your browsing without having to identify yourself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the "close session" function, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he/she will have to log in to be identified.
- Check whether the user is authorised to access certain services, e.g. to participate in a competition.
- Analytical cookies Each 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 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 counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Identify anonymously the most visited and therefore most attractive content for users.
- To know if the user accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the "Cookie" will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him/her. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the user experience on the site.
- Behavioral advertising cookies. This type of "cookies" allows us to expand the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among other things, they store the duration or frequency of viewing of advertising positions, interaction with them, or the user's browsing and/or sharing patterns, as they help to create 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 Website in its Services, the Website offers advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties ("AdServers"). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the Web Services from Users' browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
