Type, purpose and operation
Depending on their permanence, Cookies can be divided into two categories: session cookies and persistent cookies. The former expires when the user closes the browser. Whereas the latter expire when their aim is achieved or when they are deleted manually.
In addition, depending on their aim, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Required: those that are strictly necessary and essential for the correct functioning of the Website. They are normally generated once the user visits the website or logs in and are used as a form of identification on the website with the following objectives:
- They keep the user identified in such a way that, if they leave the website, exit the browser or device and then visit the page at a later time, they continued to be identified, which makes browsing easier as they do not have to identify themselves over again.
- They confirm whether or not the User is authorised to access certain services or areas of the Website.
- Preferred: These enable the Website to record information related to the way that it behaves and its appearance – such as the language or the region where it is located.
- Statistical/analytical: These are used to analyse and improve the browsing experience, optimise the functioning of the website, and see how visitors interact, by collecting and reporting information – usually anonymously, but sometimes also uniquely and unmistakably identifying the user – in order to obtain reports on the interests of users in the services offered by the website.
- Marketing: These cookies collect information about adverts shown to website users. There are two types:
- Anonymous: These collect information only about the advertising spaces shown on the Website, regardless of the user who browses without not expressly identifying him or herself.
- Custom: They collect the user’s personal information from the website on behalf of a third party, in order to customise ad spaces.
- Geolocation: These cookies are used to determine the country of the user when they visit a service on a website, in order to offer content and services suitable to their location.
