What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files from a visited website that are stored on the terminal used by the Internet user (such as a computer, tablet, mobile phone, etc.).
The information stored is temporary and anonymous, and allows the user to interact in a consistent way with the web pages they access via the Internet browser.
There are different kinds of cookies for various purposes. Some of the most common are listed below.
Some are of a technical nature and are essential for the operation of the website and for the user to use the different functions and services provided. For example, those required for: maintaining the session, differentiating users, legitimate authentication, remote banking operations or purchasing control, or the use of security features. Others allow the user to set preferences or browsing features, such as language, location or browser type. There are also analytical cookies based on certain criteria (frequency of access, content visited, connection time, etc.) that allow behaviour on the web to be studied and profiles of user preferences to be established. In the same vein, there is another type of cookies for advertising purposes which, by observing access and habits, facilitates the provision of advertising related to the interests of the user profile.
