WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files generated by the web pages you visit, which contain session data that may be useful later on on the web page. The data allows the website to keep your information between pages, and also to analyze how you interact with the site.
Cookies are safe as they can only store the information that was put in place by the browser, which is information that the user has entered in the browser or that is included in the page request. They cannot execute code and cannot be used to access your computer.
Cookies are essential for the functioning of the internet, providing innumerable advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating the navigation and usability of the web.
TYPE OF COOKIES
Below, we provide more information so that the different types of cookies that can be used are better understood:
- * Session cookies : these are temporary cookies that remain in the browser's cookie file until the web page is left, so none is recorded on the user's hard drive. The information obtained through these cookies is used to analyze traffic patterns on the web. In the long run, this provides a better experience to improve the content and facilitate its use.
- * Permanent cookies: they are stored on the hard drive and the website reads them every time a new visit is made. Despite its name, a permanent website has a certain expiration date. The cookie will stop working after that date. They are generally used to facilitate the different services offered by web pages.
- * Strictly necessary cookies such as, for example, those that serve for correct navigation or those that allow payment of goods or services requested by the user or cookies that serve to ensure that the content of the website is loaded efficiently.
- * Analytical cookies for periodic maintenance purposes and, in order to guarantee the best possible service to the user, with which websites collect statistical data on activity.
- * Third-party cookies, such as those used by social networks, or by external content supplements.
Additionally, 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. As an example, this typology includes:
- - Volume adjustments of video or sound players
- - Video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser
- - Objects stored in the "shopping cart" in E-commerce Services such as stores.
- * 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:
- - Keep the User identified so that, if he closes a Service, the browser or the computer and at another time or on another day he re-enters said Service, he will continue to be 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.
- - Check if the User is authorized to access certain Services, for example, to participate in a contest.
- - Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers in a Service with credentials of a social network, he authorizes the social network to save a persistent Cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees him access to the Services until it expires. The User can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating their preferences in the specific social network.
- * Analytical Cookies: Every time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Omniture, Netscope, Comscore and the like that may be added to this list in case they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytical Cookie in the User's computer. The main objectives pursued are:
- - Allow the 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 for Users.
- - Know if the User who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
- * Advertising cookies: they are used to collect browsing habits. More information at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ and information about DoubleClick cookies .
