A cookie is not a virus, a Trojan horse, a worm, spam, spyware or pop-up windows.
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:
• Session Cookies: These expire when the user closes the browser.
• Persistent cookies:
They expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Depending on their Owner, they 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 editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
• Third-party cookies:
These are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor,
but are also, depending on their purpose, 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 for video or sound players.
Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.
• Geolocation 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 him/her in the services with the following objectives:
To keep the user identified so that, if he/she closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enters said service, he/she will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his/her browsing without having to identify him/herself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the “close session” functionality, 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 if the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a competition.
• 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 is only generated during the visit. The main objectives pursued are:
To allow the 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 content and therefore more attractive to users.
To know whether the user accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the user experience on the site.
• Behavioural advertising cookies:
This type of cookie stores information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed in order to display advertising based on the same.
. Third-party advertising cookies:
Third-party cookies are a type of cookie that, unlike first-party cookies, do not originate from the owner of the website, but are generated by external services or providers. For example, an information blog may have cookies from Twitter (by clicking on the share button of a news item, a cookie would be generated).
Like other cookies, these cookies are also downloaded to the user’s hard drive, but unlike the cookies themselves, they are hosted on the advertiser’s server. One way of generating them is through the advertisements of other companies, products or services hosted on the website.
Cookies are stored in each browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, etc.). If you do not activate them, among other effects may occur (This list is merely enunciative):
They can be deleted and blocked, in general or in particular (for a specific website).
To delete cookies from a website you must go to the settings of the browser you use, look for the cookies associated with the domain in question, and block them.
