Cookies are files that can be downloaded to a computer through websites. They are tools that play an essential role in the delivery of many information society services. Among other functions, they allow websites to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of users or their computers and, depending on the information obtained, can be used to recognise the user and improve the service offered.
There are two different types of cookie, depending on the entity that manages the domain from which the cookies are sent and processes the data obtained. First-party cookies are those sent to the user's computer from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided. Third-party cookies are those that are sent to the user's computer from a computer or domain not managed by the publisher, but rather by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In addition, we use the terms session cookies and persistent cookies when referring to the length of time for which they remain stored in the user's browser.
Finally, there is another classification with four different types of cookie depending on the purpose for which the obtained data is processed:
a) Technical cookies: these are cookies strictly necessary for browsing the website, as they facilitate the use of its features and tools. For example: identifying the session, providing access to restricted areas, storing content for video or audio streaming and setting the language, among other things. Disabling these cookies prevents some of the website's features from functioning correctly.
b) Preference or personalisation cookies: these allow information to be recorded so that the user can use the service with certain settings that can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as the language, the number of results displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user is visiting the website, or the region from which the website is being visited.
c) Analysis or measurement cookies: these allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookie is used to measure website activity and to create user browsing profiles, in order to make improvements based on the analysis of the data on how the users use the service.
In short, through web analytics, information is obtained on the number of users visiting the website, the number of pages viewed, the frequency and repetition of visits, their duration, the browser used, the operator providing the service, the language, the computer used and the city to which its IP address is assigned. This information allows a better and more suitable service to be provided by the website.
d) Behavioural advertising cookies: these store information on users' behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows for the creation of a specific profile on the basis of which advertising can be displayed. These cookies obtain information about the user's browsing to manage advertising spaces and offer more relevant and high quality content for the user through analysis of their tastes and preferences.
