What are cookies?
Cookies are data related to a website user that are stored on the user's computer, the information for which is retrieved when they visit and browse the same website.
There are different types of cookies, depending on who manages them, and depending on the device or domain from where the cookies are sent and the processed data is obtained. It is possible to distinguish the following types of cookies:
Own cookies: Cookies that are sent to the user's terminal from a computer or domain managed by the editor and from where the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: Cookies that are sent to the user's terminal 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 cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor themselves, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.
Types of cookies depending on the length of time they remain activated
Depending on the length of time cookies remain activated on the terminal, a distinction can be made between:
Session cookies: A type of cookie designed to collect and store data when the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of products purchased).
Persistent cookies: A type of cookie in which the data remain 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.
Cookie types according to their purpose
